|Recycled Greeting Card Gift Tags|
Last night, my daughter and I stayed up till quite late, talking, laughing, and snacking. I was trying to finish my blog post and she wanted me to pay attention to her! I can see that I need to write my blog posts in the morning or afternoons from now on!
This morning, I woke up at 9:30 a.m., after going to bed at 4:30 a.m. It was an overcast morning, but, it has since cleared up and we have sunshine and clear blue skies. There is a possibility of rain in the forecast for tonight and tomorrow, but, I doubt if we'll get much rain, now!
One of the things I did this morning was cut up some of the old Christmas cards to make gift tags. These tags are then attached to packages with tape or, I punch a hole at the corner and pass through some cord or ribbon and tie them on to the packages. If you have paper punches, you could cut them out in different designs, too. But, since I don't have any punches, I just cut squares and rectangles for the most part and, occasionally, circles.
|Greeting Card Gift Tags in Use|
Admittedly, gift tags don't cost a lot (especially if one buys them at the dollar store or during an after Christmas sale), but, turning old greeting cards into gift tags can save a few cents, is a good way to reuse and recycle, and can help out in a pinch if one has run out of store bought gift tags and doesn't want to run to the store for more!
Today, I am grateful for:
- A sunny afternoon
- "Free" gift tags
- Dancer keeping me company while daughter slept in
- A warm and comfortable home in which to shelter
- Thoughtful gifts from family and friends
Today's planned joyful activity will be spending time with my daughter and relaxing. If I manage to clear the dining table, we might try working on a jigsaw puzzle, later, today!
Do you make gift tags with your old greeting cards? Or, make new cards using the fronts?
