Christmas Gift Tags

Way back in the 1980’s my Mam decided to make good use of her Christmas cards. They’re such a lovely thing to receive, in particular when they arrive from folk you may only be in touch with at that time of year so it’s such a shame to just toss them into the recycling bin as soon as Christmas is over.

So what did she do with them? This!

She got out her pinking shears and transformed the cards into gift tags for the presents she would be gifting the following year.

I now do the same. Does anybody else do this or what other uses, if any, do you have for your Christmas Cards?

  1. Yes! I have done this since I was a girl. My Grandma always used to make tags from her Christmas cards and I used to go round and help. It has become a tradition for me. I even make them when I take my cards down so they are all ready for the next year!
