Something For You: Old Christmas Cards, New Christmas Gift Tags

This one isn't really a revelation, but it's always nice to be reminded of the simple things.

I always save Christmas cards, birthday cards, thank you cards, any card in the mail is always welcome. Some I save and cherish for years. And some stay in the shoe box for years because I am hate the thought of a card in the trash.

I have one rule for the cards that become tags: cards with sweet notes will never be punched with a craft punch. They stay wrapped with a rubber band in a special bundle at home or at school.

 Materials for this DIY:
Circle or Scallop Craft Punch
Old Cards--I dug through the Christmas ones
String from your stash
Hole punch (mine's a mini)

1. Choose your Card.
2. Punch it.
3. Hold punch it.
4. Tie on string.
5. Personalize: To: You, From: Me
6. Attach to gift.
