Christmas Gift Tags
This is going to be my first 'January' effort for the Make A Month 2012 Challenge, although, in many ways, it seems almost like cheating as it is very, very simple!
When putting away the Christmas decorations on the 6th January, I hate throwing the cards away! Instead, I use them to make Christmas gift tags for next Christmas. In doing this, I am following what my Mum always did and it has become very much a Christmas tradition with me as well.
It is very simple to do! All you need are the cards and some pinking shears. If you want to be 'posh' and make gift tags with little cotton ties, you would also need a hole punch and some thread ..... although I don't bother myself!.
How do you go about this? Well, you first need to carefully look at each card and where it's been written on to see if it's suitable.
This is one I discarded! You could possibly make a 'jokey' gift tag for an adult, but this isn't to my taste!
So ..... after a couple of hours work, I have a nice selection of gift tags for next Christmas.
