Upcycling materials for gifts and wrapping is not only a cost-effective way to lower your holiday bill, but also a fantastic way to cut down on consumption, which is why these DIY recycled gift tags are perfect for this time of year.
You can find all the materials you'll need around the house: an empty cereal box, wrapping paper, a glue stick, string or ribbon, a single-hole punch and a good pair of scissors. Simply trim the cereal box down into classically shaped tags or into whatever festive shape you please.
From here, get creative with designs by covering the tags in gift wrap or using writing utensils to creative completely personalized tags. Punch a hole in the top, string through some ribbon and you're ready for the season with finishing touches that will add major personality to an already amazing gift.
These Recycled Gift Tags are Eco-Savvy, Festive and Fun to Make
