DIY~Recycle Your Old Calendar Into Simple, Beautiful Gift Tags!

Don't throw away your old calendar! Recycle it into lovely gift tags! I used my old calendar that I bought at the Dollar Tree last year. This is a simple and relaxing craft that doesn't require a lot of special tools and things to make them. I used cardboard tags, glue stick, glitter glue, sheer ribbon, a key charm, bling strips and a tiny flower that I made using Dollar Tree blossoms. This tag would be lovely tied onto a clear cellophane bag with a some paper shreds at the bottom and your gift inside. You could also make "sets" of these tags and give them as a gift in a little box. So many possibilities! Be sure to click on the following link to see how I made these pretty tags!
