Easy Recycled Vintage Book Page Gift Tags Tutorial


How to make recycled book page gift tags.

Today I've decided to share how to make super easy, upcycled, vintage-looking, book page gift tags. All you need is pages from a book, poster board-weight cardboard (such as a cereal box) and stamps, pens or any other desired embellishments.   Here's how to do it.

1.  Cut scrap poster board into desired shape for tag.

2. Cut 1/2 inch strips from book pages.  I cut mine in several different directions using a ruler, cutting mat and utility knife.

3.  Glue strips side by side to the top of the tag by brushing on a thin layer of white glue with a sponge brush.  Arrange the strips so that writing is flowing in various directions. Allow to dry and strips even with edges of tag.

4.  Hole punch at top and add a piece of twine or ribbon for attaching to gift.

5.  Decorate as desired using stamps, pens, markers or etc. Coat with Modge Podge to seal (if desired) and attach to gift.
