I am very excited to be taking part in the "Home for Christmas Blog Hop" hosted by Hometalk.com and CountryLiving.com! I'm honored to be part of such a talented group of bloggers and can't wait to see all their ideas.
For my part, I decided to show you how to make, super easy, upcycled, vintage-looking, book page gift tags. You can make them to use for gifts at Christmas or any occasion using an old book that's ready for recycle and scrap, poster board-weight cardboard, such as from a cereal box. Here's how to do it.
1. Cut desired tag shape from scrap poster board or cereal box.

2. Cut book pages pages in 1/2 inch strips in different directions using a ruler and rotary cutter or utility knife.

3. Bush on a thin layer of white glue on tag with a sponge brush. Arrange the strips side-by-side on tag so that writing is flowing in different directions. Allow for dry time and then trim excess of strips even with the tag.

4. Decorate using stamps, fountain pins or any other embellishment you choose.

5. Punch hole in top of the tag using a hole puncher and attach to the gift using jute twine, string, ribbon or etc.

    I love to make bookmarks and gift tags to include in cards, books and presents. I never thought about using the "strips in different directions" and I am going to play with your idea ... should make for a very interesting look to my items. Thanks for your creative take on the tags.
