Upcycling Christmas cards into tags

I filmed this last week and decided to upload it before I forget about it. Reusing old Christmas card leftovers, childrens Christmas craft packs and old xmas tags to make a whole new range for this year. I really enjoy recycling what I can and often my kids buy new packs of cards for school friends every year and discard the left overs. Combining these with old left over or used tags can make great embellishments.
This year all my gifts shall be adorned with cute tags that add a personal touch.

The Facebook OCF challenge.

Okay, back to our supplies. I have trawled some crafty sites to find similar items to what I used, but as the majority is recycled things from old craft kits and cards last year I do encourage you to start saving them every year and make this an annual craft in the run up to xmas.
