Save those Christmas Cards and turn them into recycled Christmas Card Tags for next years gifts! Learn how to quickly turn those old cards into something reused, purposeful and adorable with our easy tutorial.
When visiting after the holiday season last year, I sat and had tea with an old friend while her mother cut apart all of the years Christmas cards. Like always, our visit turned into a productive little craft party.
There are so many fun things you can do with old Christmas and holiday cards. I myself have a few shoeboxes full under my bed as I just can’t bring myself to ever toss them away. You’re reading this post because you most likely have a similar problem!
Let’s turn those old Christmas Cards into something purposeful and beautiful for the following holiday season.
HOW TO TURN RECYCLED CHRISTMAS CARDS INTO TAGS
Wrap your handmade, homemade gifts with plain recycled paper or your favourite holiday paper and add a festive tag cut from an old Christmas Card.
Simply cut off the front of the cards and with either a punch or a sharp pair of craft scissors, cut out the key pieces of the cards.
Then using a hole punch, punch a hole in a corner of your new gift tag.
Tie the tag with ribbon and stamp the back with a sweet to: & from: stamp like this one here.
You might get a few tags from just one card. If the image on the card is to hard to destroy, keep the image as is and glue on a craft paper bag to add a wrapping element to the gift bag.
Don’t throw out those sweet handwritten sentiments. Turn them into other holiday decor such as ornaments, a wreath, or garland with some of these other fun recycled Christmas card ideas!
These are all fun family activities you can do when preparing for the holiday season together. Kids love creating, get them involved in creating holiday gift tags and creating gifts for each other, friends and extended family.
