great ideas!

Keep those ideas coming!! I am totally trying the gift tags from old cards! I keep them every year and they are sitting in a box. This way they will take on a second life!
I also tried the ribbon from left over wrapping paper. It is tricky (thicker paper is better) but the results are BEAUTIFUL!!!

This is a very simple idea but I thought this is a good time to post it.
With Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners we all usually take a container with some type of food.

And usually it's a container that we want to be sure we take back home with us.
I take one of my address labels and put it on the container. They will stay on through several washings and no more messy writing with a marker that sometimes because of the container will not stay on the container.

I have baking cake pans with lids, so I put the label on my lid. They will stick to plastic too.

Then I will attach a loop as a hanger (somehow) and it will be all ready to hang!
Please post photos when you make these---they sound gorgeous!

I don't have to buy gift tags and some cards are just perfect as a gift tag.
I love that idea! Thanks
