I have a problem. I cannot throw out greeting cards. Any greeting cards. I keep birthday and Christmas cards that the insurance people send me. I have a whole file folder FULL of greeting cards. And I knew I had to do SOMETHING with them (mostly because my hubby told me to find someway to use them).
Here they are, years and years of greeting cards:
So after some Pinterest-ing research, I came up with the idea of making gift tags!
(These are only the cards I could bear to cut up i.e. from insurance agents, realtors, random people I don’t know anymore. I still have to find something to do with ALL the other cards, from people I love!)
I ran to Hobby Lobby and picked up at tag maker. However, the tags turned out funny and I took the tag maker back. I realized I could use my Silhouette to make tags out of the cards, and it was much easier than I thought it would be!
I cut the cards in half and stuck them on my Silhouette Mat. First, I cut out a tag stencil using some stencil paper I had and used that to figure out how many tags I could get out of each card. It worked incredibly well! Once I cut them out, I used a hole punch to punch a hole in the top of each tag.
And the almost finished product! I still have some more cards to cut up and once I’m finished I will tie a little string in each hole and use them as gift tags!
