Making gift tags from recycling brown paper !
Kev always gets his subscription to National Geographic magazine in the mail, which comes in brown paper packaging...As I love to recycle most things I'm always coming up with ways to reuse most things others just throw away... Yes it could be good for the worms and the compost ...But I like to be a little more creative then that ...so I have made little gift tags which I think look rather lovely and as I'm always making gifts for family and friends they should come in handy ...They look really rustic and cute ..so all you will need is some string, scissors a hole punch and some eyelet rings that stick over the punched out hole ...and a printer ...so all I did was cut the paper to size to fit in printer and on Microsoft word type out "Made with Love" but you could create your own words...this one can be used on craft items I have made or any cooked goodies like cookies or chocolate truffles etc..
I also reuse the paper to wrap up small gifts, I also fold inside out to reuse for sending gifts in the mail...
use it to make little gift bags, bonbons, small paper patterns or templates for quilting etc...so many great ideas..if you have any others please post and share....wrap around pot plants that you are giving for gifts..
