I am super excited to be taking part in the "Home for Christmas Blog Hop" hosted by Hometalk.com and CountryLiving.com! I can't wait to see all the great ideas this talented group of bloggers will come up with. For my part, I decided to show you how to make super easy, upcycled, vintage-looking, book page gift tags. You can make them to use for gifts at Christmas or any occasion using an old book that's ready for recycle and scrap, poster board-weight cardboard, such as from a cereal box. Here's how to do it.
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.
|See! Couldn't be easier and they will make for a really unique touch to your gifts this Christmas.|
