We recycle junk mail through our county recycle program. 

I also use some junk mail in mixed media artwork.  I especially like the solid color, quality paperstock some of the banks use when soliciting recipients to sign up for a credit card. I use that type of paper in a die cutting machine or with craft paper punches. 

Even if you are not really into crafting or artwork, one $10  (purchased with a Michaels or JoAnn's 40% off coupon, of course!) craft paper punch in the shape of a tag, large circle or square can garner quite a few  gift tags from some junk mail that offers a large area of a solid color.  You can continue to embellish them or leave plain. A good quality, white gel pen looks great on dark paper like navy or grey. Good comparisons of white gel pens here  https://www.jetpens.com/blog/t...hite-ink-pens/pt/340

Craft punch comes in handy after Christmas, too, upcycling those beautiful Christmas cards!
