Christmas tags made from old Christmas cards by Diane Ashmore

I always think it a shame to throw out old Christmas cards, so I here is a bright idea to make gift tags from them. Store them for next year and give your gifts a personal touch.

Step-by-step instructions for making Christmas gift tags

You will need:
old Christmas cards
scissors
hole punch
ribbon or string
rubber stamps and inkpad (optional)

I bought some of my supplies from Hobbycraft and some from Paperchase

1. Cut out shapes from the Christmas cards.

2. After you’ve cut out your shapes, punch a hole in the top.

3. You can, if you like, stamp a greeting on the tag.

4. Finally, thread some ribbon or string through the hole. I used lots of different colours.
