DIY Retro/Kitsch Christmas Gift Tags Using Old Christmas Cards

Gift Tags made from old Christmas Cards - Simple DIY Gift Wrapping Idea

I remember making tags like these all the way back when I was in Kindergarten. At the time I thought they were the cutest and cleverest of things and such a great way to use up old Christmas cards! I felt so proud of the amount I made and therefore the amount of Christmas cards I had recycled. I’m not sure what recent event sparked my memory, but earlier this week I had the impulse to dig out all my old cards again. It’s now been quite a few years since I first made them, but the experience was every bit as fun and enjoyable. Using these retro/kitsch style of cards (which I’ve probably had for over 20 years) only added to all the fond memories too.

Egg-Carton Succulents - A simple planter and gift idea.

I was so excited to find this carton of succulents waiting for me when I got up this Sunday morning. My Mum had just been over to a school fair where they were selling all sorts of cacti and brought these cute little ones home especially for me. I thought the egg carton was such a great temporary planter idea, especially for a gifting someone a wide range of plants (would be an awesome house warming or hostess gift), that I wanted to share it with you here!
