Repurposed cards

Hi Crafters,
The other day one of my crafty friends was here to visit and we started playing in my craftroom. I had a ton of old Christmas cards that I was keeping not for sentimental value but because I knew they would come in handy for crafting one day :) I had seen a photo on the internet a long time ago where someone had used a punch to make Christmas tags out of old cards. We decided to dust of my Cricut and using my Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge cut all these tags. To get the image we wanted off the front of the card we used the center point feature. Some of the cards we were even able to get 2 or 3 tags. Most of the tags were cut at 4".  This was so much fun and it took us no time at all to get a huge pile of tags. I can't wait for next Christmas when I can use these ;)
Thanks for shopping by today and happy crafting.

What a fun project!

P.S. How did you get your "You might also like" gadget to work? I tried but nothing seemed to happen.

Great idea!! These are all so cute!!
I saved a bunch of Christmas card fronts for "something someday" and now you've inspired me!! :)

What a great idea! I will have to remember this for next years cards. My husband threw this years away. He was being helpful cleaning up so of course I didn't say a thing. (out loud that is. lol)
