12 Crafts of Christmas- Recycled Gift Tags

This, by no means, is a ground breaking craft, but it involved Christmas, presents and recycling, so I thought I should share it all the same.

I love using old cards to make gift tags, it's so simple but it looks lovely and it's soo easy!

I wanted to use this set of fancy scissors, but they are old ones we had as children and really not that sharp (to protect our wee hands).  I tried using them but they didn't give a clean edge, so I swapped back to regular scissors and plan on getting some 'grown-up' fancy ones at some point.  To be honest  this is probably the limit of my paper crafting skills (well, this and paper chains!), so if I bother getting my own, one, maybe two, pairs will definitely suffice.  I could horde craft supplies like nobodies business  even for crafts I don't really do!

Not long now, I've two or three more gifts to make, and everything to wrap, so exciting!!!
