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!

Materials Needed

*Kraft Tags (About 3.5 inches high by 2-1/4 inches wide) You can buy them on Ebay OR Google "Tag Template" or "Tag pattern" and cut your own out of cardboard.
*Old Calendar
*Elmer's Glue Stick
*Bling Strips and Bling for middle of flower (Dollar Tree carries them.)
*Sheer Ribbon (Dollar Tree carries this too.)
*Glitter Glue OR Twinkles Glitter Paint in "Crystal."
*Sharpie Pen (Optional)
*Tiny Blossoms from the Dollar Tree
*Key Charms from Ebay (Make sure there is an opening at the top so you can slide your ribbon through it. 

*Regular Hole Punch
*Low Temp. Hot Glue Gun
