Description:

Recycle your old greeting cards (or pictures, postcards, junk mail, etc) into tags for your gift giving...

Cut out the picture from the card (or any other item) , you can use edging scissors to make it pretty. How you design your tag is up to you.

With the holidays approaching we will be needing some tags, so here's a swap for the holidays.

Each person will have 2 partners, and you will send each partner 6 tags.

The tag must be made from recycled paper.

I would like to join this swap! Sounds fun and will be a great way to use some of the wonderful cards I have!

Should the tag have the "To:" and "From:" headings and lines, or just blank? Or is that up to the designer?

On a related note, 5 years ago our extended family met up at a rental house for Christmas. My in-laws made ornaments by cutting out designs from cards, then stringing yarn through a punched hole at the top. That way we could have a decorated tree but nobody had to transport (and potentially lose) ornaments!

Can I recycle old tags into new and improved ones? For example, I have a bunch of fancy tags from new pairs of jeans. Can I alter them to make holiday tags?

That's a neat idea jessmarie.

I'm sorry this took me so long to answer. My laptop has died and I was waiting on a new one. Your imagination is all that is required in this swap. The main idea is to recycle paper into tags that we can use. How you do this is up to you. Becuase the holidays are upon us I thought keeping with a holiday theme would be nice. How you do this is up to you.

Thanks for clearing that up! :)

Oh, so I don't have to limit myself to old Christmas cards to cut down into tags? I can use other recycled paper?

jessmarie 10/16/2008 #

blackeyedsusan... from my understanding we are allowed to use anything as long as it is recycled materials.

And I'm really sorry to do this, but I think it would be best for me to drop this swap. I wish I could participate but under current circumstances it's not the best thing. :(

At the rate I am recycling cards for this swap, if we don't get partners soon, they'll each get WAY more than six tags!

Hello? when do we get our partners??

The host seems to be occupied so I have withdrawn from the swap.

Well, our swap hostess hasn't been online in over a week. I hope she is okay. If I don't hear in the next day or so, I'll have to drop. At least my stash of gift tags will be stocked.

I am so sorry to all of you. I know I have not been the best of hostessess. I have a new job that is keeping me very busy and trying to get into a schedule of working, keeping up with the family and my swaps has taken a toll. To top it off we bought a new house and are in the process of moving. I am living out of boxes right now. AAGHH!!! I want to thank all of you who stuck it out with me, and my sincerest appologies to those who left. Once again I am very sorry.
