Do you have some Christmas or greeting cards lying around? If so, here is a great way to reuse them – Greeting Card Gift Tags
Sometimes getting a greeting card in the mail is most special because you know you got it for no reason at all. One of the best reasons to send a greeting card is because you don’t need a reason. Having someone send you good wishes is always welcomed. –thatbaldchick.com
You go to get the mail and more times than not it’s bills and ads. Lately, we are getting to the age that AARP pops up but the recent kicker was a letter from a mortuary company wanting us to start picking out our plot! Needless to say, a card from a friend can be a bright spot in someone’s day!
Whether you receive them at Christmas, birthday, anniversary, or just because, a card can have more life after the initial intent.
One of my favorite things to make is these DIY Greeting Card Gift Tags. They are simple to make and a great way to upcycle something that might otherwise get tossed.

- Tag Punch, this is what I use but feel free to use whatever you like or cut them out with scissors.
- If needed, hole punch
GIFT TAG INSTRUCTIONS
- Using the tag punch, you can line up the image that you want. Cut off any part of the card so that you can get the image into the punch.
- You will also want to make sure there is no writing on the backside of the image you want so you can use it as a to and from gift tag.
- Punch out the tag on a sturdy table.
- Use as much of the card as possible, including the back of the card. Even if it’s white, you can then add designs to it or stickers.
- The tag punch we use has a punch to make the top hole for the ribbon.
- Tie ribbon or string. This is a great time to reuse a ribbon.
- Add To and FROM and you are all set.
These gift tags are so easy and fun to make.
So, let’s start sending some greeting cards to our family and friends and then share this gift tag project with them.
What do you use greeting cards for? We would love to know.
