I get so many catalogs in the mail this time of year. The stuff inside is very pretty, but I can't afford any of it, so I decided to use them to make gift tags.

And best of all, they're pretty much free. (Besides my cats like to eat the bows I try to put on presents, but they leave these alone.)

Step 1: Gather Supplies

Here's what you'll need.

A catalog from the mail
Red and green construction paper, or card stock.
Paper fasteners

I find the flower catalogs work really well, and I get a lot of them.
Nice idea, and pretty too. Good luck with the competition!
