Hello and welcome to my Eco Conscious Crafting Blog post!
You may have arrived here from Katharina Pradel.
Today we are creating with an environmentally friendly process. So I have decided to up-cycle some paper shopping and gift bags. This is something that I have been doing for a few years rather than purchasing Christmas paper and Birthday gift wrapping paper.
I have purchased a few Christmas presents early and have made these bags into Christmas gift bags by simply creating a Christmas tag.
I reached into my scrap card stock bin and my box containing half finished projects for these tags. All but the Whisper White Card stock came from the bin and box of unused card stock. Some of the card stock pieces have marks on them but will still be perfect for creating tags and not throwing away.
I created three gift tags for my bags. These are very simple tags and use only card stock, ink and linen thread.
You can see the products used below to create these tags
This Christmas Tree tag is simple to make and the recipients name is hidden inside the tree.
I love the fancy die from the Detailed Bands Dies in Melon Mambo with the Melon Mambo Christmas Tree and Star. The recipient on the back of this tag.
This tag was easy to create with the punch and layering circle dies. Again the recipient is on the back of the tag.
I hope you have enjoyed reading how simply you can up cycle and reuse bags for gifting. I hope that I have inspired you to make some simple tags to use at Christmas and with Birthdays too! I hope the recipients of my gift bags reuse them as well.
