Never be caught without Christmas gift tags again when you learn how to recycle Christmas cards to make gift tags!
What do you do with all the Christmas cards you receive every year for Christmas? I thought it would be fun/cute/practical/thrifty to make Christmas gift tags out of recycled Christmas cards.
The fun part is the cute ornament shapes.
The practical part is, well, because I had extra Christmas cards and I still needed some gift tags.
So, I got out my extra Christmas cards and decided to recycle them into Christmas gift tags with a little help from my Cricut Maker.
