DIY Gift Tags (From Recycled Holiday Cards)

Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed the holidays! I had a great time hibernating at my grandmother's house in Canada, eating lots, and relaxing with my family.
I like to keep my Christmas decorations up for a least a week or so after the New Year.  I don't like how my apartment feels empty when they're gone.  I guess that I can use it as motivation to try new projects!  
I have a little tip to share with you that's economically and environmentally friendly!  Last year I cut up the Christmas cards I received and saved them to make gift tags for this year.  I saw the idea on Pinterest (as usual).  Holiday cards are always so pretty, and I was happy to put them into use instead of throwing them away. (Plus they came in handy since I didn't need to buy tags from the store!)

Creating these tags were effortless!  

1. After cutting your cards, punch a hole.

2. Tie on a piece of ribbon.

3. Write your message on the back and tie the tag onto the gift! 

I hope you found this little tip useful for next year's gifting! 

Stay warm!
