Don't know what to do with all of your old Cards. Well this is a good way to recycle your old Cards, and make them into gift tags!


Old Cards
Tag stencil
hole puncher

Step 1: Pick Your Card

First pick an area of the card that you would like to make a tag out of. Here I'm going to make the tag of a sleeping boy. You can pick a different area of the card to make more tags besides the one you've chosen!

-Then trace the area that you have chosen.

Step 2: The Cutting

Now that you have traced it out, now you can start cutting.

Step 3: Final Step

After its been cut out just get the hole puncher and punch out a hole on one of the ends. Instant tag! :D

I've also decided to cut out the inside of the card. I try to use as much of the card as I can!

Step 4: Last Thoughts

Be creative most of all Recycle, Reuse, Reduce...! ;p

I can't believe I've never thought of this-I have been making my own tags for years when I run out by just cutting rectangles out of white cardstock, etc-but this is so much nicer! I am gonna start making some now! Thanks for a great idea!
