I have committed to posting a Parenting Tips and Tricks to my lovely readers every day up till Christmas. If you want to know how and why this idea started you can track back to Tips and Tricks No #1
Today’s Parenting Tips and Tricks is a great way to recycle those old Christmas cards and to involve the kids in the Christmas preparations in making gift tags for Christmas presents.
Cut out the pictures from the cards to the size of a gift tag. You can cut out several tags from some of the cards with multiple characters on.
Use a hole punch to make a hole for the string to go through and you can add glitter to bling them up a bit if you like.
Given you’ve saved on the cost of Christmas tags – you could spruce your tag up a bit with curly ribbon instead on string.
I usually put curly ribbon around my presents (parcel string style) and attach my tag to the underside of the bow.
