Just before Christmas I packed up all my stock and craft fair display items and put most of the boxes up in the loft to get them out of the way. I moved the rest of the stuff out of my studio too, as we’re going to be laying the new floor soon as well as finishing off the walls so that I can move back in properly and get organised and get my work life back to normal. Anyway, the point of this story is…
…that I found myself without any gift tags to put on the presents we’d just wrapped – having sold so many packs of gift tags at craft fairs in December. I didn’t have the time or inclination to climb back up to the loft and hunt through my stock box to find the remaining packets. So I decided to make some new ones.
Earlier I’d found all the Christmas cards we’d received last year and so I decided to use those to make all the gift tags we needed and here are the results. Look out for the ‘Free Gift‘ alert at the end of this post.
I didn’t select all the little details, I just made sure I got as many gift tags out of each card as I possibly could in order to reduce waste. I think they’re so lovely and I’d love to make some more.
So I’m appealing for you to save your Christmas cards – don’t throw them away, don’t put them into the recycling bin – send them to me – unless you want to make things out of them yourself that is – why not give it a go!
I would love to get my hands on lots of unwanted Christmas cards, so if you want to get rid of yours in the knowledge that they are going to be put to good use, feel free to stuff them all into a padded envelope and send them to me at:
Address removed… No need for any more donations… thanks
