Julie's Creative Lifestyle

DIY Christmas Tags

Friday, November 13, 2015




Hi friends.  In my house I love Christmas cards!  I hate throwing them away when Christmas is over.  I like saving them and making my own Christmas tags with them.  I would love to share with you these easy steps to make your own.


DIY Christmas Tags



1)  Save old Christmas cards
2)  Pick out a card you like
3)  You will need a hole puncher and ribbon
4)  Take card and pick a scene and cut card into small square or rectangle
5)  Punch a hole into top of card
6)  Insert and add cut ribbon to the punched hole




These are so much fun to make and you can get the whole family involved with this easy craft.  You are saving money and all having fun at the same time.  I made 3 tags using one Christmas card.  If you start making them now you will have pretty Christmas tags ready to use for when you're wrapping Christmas presents.

I hope I have inspired you to make your own Christmas tags this year.

  4. I always love letting the kids "play"with those old cards, Julie. This is a great idea for something to do with them. Easy enough that the kids can do it, too. xo Diana

  5. I think this is a brilliant idea!
    I always save the christmas cards I receive and sometimes make new ones out of these :-)
    But this is also fun and a bit easier too.
    Have a nice weekend,

  15. Congratulations to Kim - your tags are great. I don't send cards that much as it so expensive for cards and stamps. I only send to people far away.
    But, I do like to save them as they are so pretty. I will go through mine and make some tags.
    Putting away my Fall and digging out my Christmas decorations.
    Have a great weekend my friend.
    Hugs,
    Mary

  18. Ooh how lovely are those gift tags! The ultimate in recycling. I recall making some many years ago as a young girl and it was so much fun. I shall certainly be keeping this year's cards to use for next Christmas.

  19. Congratulations to the winner! Making tags from old cards is a good idea, trouble is we get more cards than I have parcels to give, but I do recycle them in other ways! Your parcels will be looking very pretty this Christmas! xx
