Thrifty Thursdays

I never throw away greeting cards, I simply recycle them and use them as gift tags.......
Supplies you will need.....
Scissors, Hole puncher, decorative scissors (optional), Ribbon, Old Greeting card, and a Marker

Step one: Cut the off the back part of the greeting card.
Step 2: Using your decorative scissors cut out what ever shape you like out of the front of the greeting card ( I choose to do a square)
Step 3: Using a hole puncher punch a hole in the top left corner.

Step 4: On the back side of the card write a message or To: & From:

Step 5: Using Ribbon tie the gift tag on to gift bag or box ( On gift bags I like to tie the ribbon to the little plastic hook used to hang it on the display).

And there you have it, a frugal gift tag!
