Fabulous Frugal Gift Tags


Emily and I spent some time this afternoon making these great gift tags from last year's greeting cards.  To make the gift tags, you will need:
  1. Some old greeting cards -- Many of the ones we received last year had no writing on the inside left, so we used those.
  2. Hole Punch
  3. Ribbon - I found the 1/8" wide or 1/4" wide work best.
  4. Clear Contact Paper - Optional.
Have your child cut out the shapes from the greeting cards.  You can laminate these with clear contact paper, and use wipe-off marker to have re-useable gift tags!  Punch a hole in the top of the card, and thread some ribbon through.

Great idea! I'm glad to see someone else recycles old cards. My frugal Friday post included doing the same thing.

I love doing this. I do the same thing with birthday cards--they make really cute gift tags for birthday presents! :)
