I figured I'd post this in the Reconstructed board since my main goal was recycling.

I'm saving my money up for my first car so I didn't want to spend a lot of cash on things like cards or gift tags this year.  So I went through some old drawers and found some bits & bobs.  There were a bunch of old holiday-themed plastic earrings my mom used to have me wear when I was little and I figured they might make some cool cards or gift tags, so I picked them out, pulled out the hooks, and glued 'em down to good 'ol construction paper.

They're not the most professional-looking gift tags in the world, but I don't mind.  At least I know they're unique!

EDIT:  I added some glitter paint and gold ribbon so now I'm happier with them.

Some girls were just born with glitter in their veins.
