DIY Cardboard Gift Tags

Don’t throw away cardboard you get in the mail, use it to make gift tags – it’s easy and cool!

I’ve used cardboard, not the thick kind, twine, thin grey cardboard (from the inside of a cereal box), a paper perforator, a pair of scissors and a glue stick. First cut out the shape you want from cardboard and make a hole with the perforator. Then make a hole in the grey cardboard from the cereal box and cut around it so that you’ll end up with a small ring. Attach the ring with the glue stick and thread some twine through the hole, tie a knot and you’re done.
