So this is a post I wrote last year, but I thought I would share it again this year :). I have done this for 2 years now and I enjoy it a lot!
Hey everyone Jenn here!!
I hope that all of you had a wonderful Christmas! We had such an amazing time, this has definitively been the most fun Christmas yet for Kaitlyn! It has been so much fun watching all her excitement this year from Santa, to cookies, to shopping and presents-it has been all so wonderful!
One of my favorite things is sending and receiving Christmas cards! I just think it is so exciting to go to the mailbox and finding a card (of course I like that anytime), but there is something so nice about getting Christmas cards…..and this year Kaitlyn has LOVED opening them and looking at all the pretty pictures.
Last year I had read an article about using leftover cards for name tags on presents, it didn’t have any pictures or instructions but I loved the idea though! I always disliked throwing them away and this way I could use them and enjoy the pictures next year!
This year I started out using regular name tags for presents, but in running out of those….I remembered the article and that I had saved some cards from last year.
I simply took my old cards and cut them into squares and rectangles and used those as my gift tags :). For some I tried to get specific pictures cut out-one of my nephews is santa’s face and another is a fireplace and some more are snowflakes…..but some are not any particular picture, and they are still pretty and look great on the gifts. After cutting out what I wanted I just punched a hole in them, wrote the to and from, and attached it to the gift via ribbon. Soo simple and cheap, but very pretty! And one of the best parts is that Kaitlyn helped cut them out and punch the holes, so it was something we got to enjoy together!
I am definitely using this years cards as tags for next years presents!
I am also hoping to use some to make some other things…..I am thinking magnets and bookmarks….we shall see….and if it goes well, I will share it with y’all!
I hope that you have had a wonderful Christmas and have a Happy New Year!
