Don't you just hate to toss all those pretty Christmas cards at the end of the season? It seems like such a waste!
If you're like me, you like to find new uses for pretty things. Here is a super simple idea for reusing your old Christmas cards.
1) You can use the entire front of a card for your gift tag, or just cut out the portion of the image you want to use. I used scalloped-edged scissors to make a fancy cut.
2) Glue the card to plain cardstock, and then cutout around the edges. This covers any writing that might be on the back of the old card you're reusing.
3) Use a hole punch to make a hole in one corner of the card.
4) Loop a ribbon through the hole you just made. You can make it long or short, as desired, to attach the card to your gift.
5) Optional: Use a "To / From" stamp on the back, to address your gift cards.
6) Attach your cards to your gifts with a small piece of tape, or tie the ribbon to the package.
Brighten all your gift packages with pretty tags, made from your old Christmas cards. These are perfect for any gift that you send in the mail, because they don't get squashed!
