Why bother spending money on gift tags when you can make your own? It is something that the kids can have fun with too and is a great way to recycle any greeting cards you may have received. You can make tags for all occasions, be it birthdays or Christmas, or just because.

Time: Depends on how many you make; they take about a couple of minutes each.
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Used greeting cards
Ribbon
Hole puncher
Scissors

Method



birthday card
These cards are good choices.


Choose which cards will make the best tags. When deciding, you should consider:



birthday card
The picture on this card is too small.


1. Size: Big enough to write a message on the back, but not too big for the present you're attaching it to.



birthday cards
There are no pictures to cut into shapes.


2. Shape: Symmetry is always more attractive; try pictures that can be cut round to make circles, squares, triangles, etc.



birthday card
These cards are damaged an unsuitable.


3. Condition: What is the condition of the card? Flimsy quality won't be much use and if there is text or images on the back, then it will prevent you from writing a message.



Cut the cards to the size and shape you want using a pair of scissors.



hole puncher


Use a hole puncher to create a small hole in the corner of each tag (you could also use a sharp pencil to pierce through the card).



greeting tags


Using pieces of spare ribbon tie a loop through the hole.
Write a message on the back of the tag, saying who it is to, and wish them a happy whatever.
Attach the tag to the present.
