Recycled gift tags

Hi, Vesna here. I think by now you know that I enjoy crafting with recycled items. Creativity doesn’t need to be expensive. I guarantee you that you already have supplies around your house that you didn’t even think you can use in your crafty projects.
As the year is coming to an end and you are getting ready for gift giving this holiday season, I want to help you with making those gifts extra special by adding a handmade gift tag.
Here is a list of supplies you will need:

Recycled-gift-tags

*Cardstock (or blank gift tags that you bough ions ago on sale because they were cheap)
* Scissors
* Glue stick (double sided tape if you have one)
* Ink pad
*From/To stamp or alphabet stamps or Sharpie/marker to hand write from/to
* Twine or yarn or embroidery floss
* Plastic grocery bags
* Envelope with a security print on the inner side from all those bills and credit card offers

Technique:
Cut the plastic grocery bag in strips and make a little bow. Stamp From/To on your tag. Glue the plastic bow on the tag.

Or a variation made with the envelope paper. Cut a triangle to resemble a Christmas tree. Cut a small strip of twine, fold it in half and glue it on the bottom of the Christmas tree on the inner side. Add more glue (I used double sided tape) to the tree shape and adhere on your tag. Stamp From/To.
