Art Lesson No. 5 - Handmade Tags

Before you throw those scrap of card stock cut-outs, pause for a while.  You can save couple of dollars by turning those into personalized, handmade tags.

Store bought tags are usually 49 to 99 cents each.  Might be cheap but those add up come the holidays.  So, why not make your own?  Here's how:

1.  Gather scraps of card stock, paper or cardboard
2.  Cut in desired shapes
3.  Scribble or hand-stamp with your own message.
4.  Punch a hole.
5.  Loop a yarn or ribbon.

It's that easy, you get to help reduce waste by recycling too.

Enjoy your new tags!
