Gold and Silver For Tag Tuesday with recycled Paper

At Tag Tuesday the theme for the next two weeks is Gold and Silver. The first picture is of the back of a recycled Christmas card.

I keep the ones I receive and also get cards from my husbands work when they take them off display in January to recycle. The thrift stores are another great place to find quality paper to create with, especially in January. I find half filled boxes of Cards that people paid $20 for and I’ll pay $2.98 or less. This paper has texture and it’s perfect for snowflakes.

I stamped and embossed one tag in silver and the other in gold and added a tiny bling for her crown.

I make lot’s of Christmas tags for a church function I host every year.

It’s called a Wrap it up party, and everyone brings their presents unwrapped to the church and all the supplies are provided and we all wrap our presents together. I find wrapping paper, boxes, gift bags, tissue paper, ribbon, and present toppers on clearance or at yard sales and thrift stores and save them all year for this event.

I also make gift tags and host a tag making party where guests make some to keep and donate the rest to the church for the event. The idea started one year after I spent two days wrapping presents by myself and thought it would be so much more fun to do this with other people, and it’s grown into a rather large and very fun event. All that being said, if you wonder why in the world I make so many Christmas tags, now you’ll know why!!

  2. That is the best idea ever Karen! We have church events where people bring presents for children in need but everyone wraps them at home. It would be much more fun to do together 🙂 Love those gold and silver angel tags and you’re right, thrift shops are perfect places to look for un-used card, old music etc. Vicky x
