8th December: Homemade gift tags

It's always nice when an activity has multiple benefits and this one definitely fulfills! Gift wrapping can be extremely expensive and also feel quite wasteful, especially if you have lots of people to buy for. A simple and fun way to save a bit of cash for next Christmas is to save your cards from this year and make some beautiful and unique gift tags to use next year. 

Making tags from old cards not only saves you money but it is another way to recycle your cards before they ultimately go in the recycling bin. It is a great activity for older children too and they look really nice against brown paper or newspaper with bright string or ribbon.
