Upcycling Holiday Cards from friends and family into Gift Tags

Re y led Christmas cardsGreeting cards have all been sent and received.  Here’s one great way to repurpose Christmas cards from last year: make them into gift tags.

While most of your gifts must have been wrapped and given away by now, you can make a note to save the cards you get this year to work on after the holiday break.  You can even do this with your kids.  You can also watch out for those gift catalogues (like this year’s catalogue from Tiffany’s which came debossed and patterned in gorgeous snowflakes) and then use them before throwing away.  Make a mental note to save the bakers string or yarn that you come across for this very purpose, or watch out for the slimmer ribbons that will accompany the gifts you received.

You’d be surprised at how pretty these can be, more so after you personalize them with a scribbled greeting from one of the younger kids.
