Gift tags made from recycled christmas cards {and a guest post}


I took down our christmas cards yesterday. Rather than throw them out I recycled them into gift tags ready to use next christmas. I was actually a bit sneaky this christmas and recycled many of this years cards as tags before christmas was even over. At least I won't have to do that again next year.

I simply cut a gift tag shape out of the front of cards, making sure there wasn't any writing on the back so that I have a blank side to write a message on. I then punched a hole ready for twine, wool or ribbon.

A guest post: Yay! I'm now part of the team over at Childhood 101

I was thrilled when Christie of Childhood 101 asked me to be part of part of her new team.  My first post is up today. I write about my new years resolution to facilitate more unstructured outdoor play for Little Eco.

Speaking of New Year's resolutions, you have to read about Meg and Patrick's New Year's resolution. The've gone car-free. And they live in the country! I'm inspired.

Also, if you are quick, you have time to enter a giveaway for a gorgeous Little Jenny Wren doll. Entries close 1pm today.
