One way to save money this Christmas is to make your own gift tags out of recycled Christmas cards. This is a great craft idea that kids can help with and would be perfect for them to attach to gifts for friends and teachers.
Use a shipping tag as a template, and trace a tag shape onto a Christmas card. Cut it out, punch a hole, and stick on some reinforced rings to strengthen the hole. A quick and easy activity!
I wish I had saved more Christmas cards last year for other Christmas Card Craft projects. Martha Stewart has a lovely roundup of ideas on her site.
Here are some of the other recycled gift tags we have made over the past few years:
|Postage Stamp Gift tags
|Christmas Tags for Bridge Lovers
|Paint Chip Gift Tags
Do you have any ideas for making gift tags or Christmas decorations out of recycled materials?
