Upcycling Last Year's Holiday Cards

Who has bags of holiday cards from last year just sitting around?  If you're looking for ways to reuse them, consider making them into attractive gift tags for this year's gifts!  

All you need are scissors a hole punch, and string or ribbon.  You can write to/from on the blank side, and face the design part outwards.  

You could also buy tag stencils or punches to get them looking perfect.  It's quick, easy, inexpensive, and you're putting cute holiday cards to good use.  

You can turn this into a craft for little kids, too!  Grab some stickers, pom-poms, and glue sticks for your kids to get in touch with their artistic side.  Your family members will love these gift tags.  Plus, they can even upcycle them again and use them as ornaments for years to come!  

If you turn old t-shirts into gift bags and use these gift tags, your holiday gift wrapping will be fabulously upcycled and eco-friendly!
