Today we are making gift tags! Recycled gift tags that is. We'll be making them out of catalogs...you know all the catalogs we get by the boat load in the mail. I used the Vera Bradley catalog because of the great prints and graphics, but any colored print will work.
Just place the desired design in the circle cutter and squeeze the handles...
and you're done!
You may have to trim away some of the paper on the side, so the hole punch can snug up against the design that you'd like. Isn't this green print cute!
Here is a snow flake on the page next to the purse...
The circle punch is open on the top, so you can center the design if you need to.
These are all the circles that I punched from one small catalog in a matter of minutes.
Next I printed out a full sheet of "To:" and "From:" on Microsoft word. I played with the layout until I could fit the words in the size of my hole punch.
Here is a close up.
Now just punch out the gift tags with the hole punch.
The easiest way to attach the decorative circle to the "To / From" circle is permanent double sided tape.
Place one piece of double sided tape on the back of the "To / From" tag...
and then place the decorative circle on top of that.
You will need a small hole for the string on the gift tag. You can use the tiny hole punch or just poke a hole with the tip of your scissors or maybe a nail.
