tissue box 1. Find a pretty tissue box, worthy of using to create gift tags!
gift tag 2. First create a template by tracing the basic shape you want on a scrape piece of poster-board. (I reused a product’s packaging.) If you don’t feel like creating your own template you can use our FREE gift tag template. (Scroll to the bottom of the page to find the template.)
gift tag 3. Next cut out your template. I folded the poster board in half to get a more symmetrical shape.
gift tag 4. Position your template on your tissue box, trace and cut out. (Be sure to break down your tissue box before you trace.)
gift tag 5. Use a hole punch to place a hole in your gift tag and use an old ribbon or even a piece of plastic bag as a tie.
gift tag 5. Label your gift tag and attach it to your gift! (Hopefully you have better handwriting than I do!) :)
gift tags 6. If you are like me and you don’t really care for your handwriting… you can print your information on the computer and then cut the paper slightly smaller than your tag and attach it to the tag with a glue stick.

I found this idea on My Recycled Bags and pinned it to my Reuse – Holiday Edition board on Pinterest! Come follow me on pinterest?
