Have you ever wondered what you should do with all of the GORGEOUS Christmas cards that you receive? A few years ago, I decided to save them for a future use. This year I decided to repurpose them as gift tags. It’s a simple way to recycle something beautiful.
The items you will need: Used Christmas cards, colorful cardstock, paper cutter, glue stick, hole punch, twine or thin ribbon, embellishments, such as rhinestones, and your imagination!
This is my favorite paper cutter! I’ve had it for years and it works great!
I use colorful cardstock quite frequently and I always save the scraps.
To create gift tags, start by cutting the image on the card you would like to save. Next, cut a piece of cardstock in a coordinating color. Be sure to cut the cardstock slightly larger than the image, which will leave a “color” border. Use a glue stick to attach the image to the cardstock. Embellish with rhinestones, if appropriate. Punch a hole in the corner, or center it on the gift tag. Place a ribbon or piece of twine through the hole and you have created a gift tag!
I haven’t punched the holes and added the ribbon with these, but you can see how fun they are. If you don’t have used Christmas cards, you can also use festive scrapbook paper for the image.
