Christmas Garland & Advent Calendar Using Tags

The tag kit that comes in this month's paper-crafting kit is adorable! It has everything you need to make holiday gift tags all in a fun little box.

But, we decided to use the tag for some alternate project ideas. After all, not everyone loves to wrap fancy packages with handmade gift tags. Some people wrap all their gifts on Christmas eve, slap a sticker on them, and crawl into bed. How about you?

If you aren't into gift wrapping but like to decorate, this idea is for you. String your gift tags on a ribbon and drape it across your doorway or mantle. Add accents with mini clothespins. You could even add alphabet stickers to create a holiday greeting.

The second idea we'd like to share is an advent. Since there are 24 tags in the kit, you could make a countdown for the entire month of December. But, we decided to go with the 12 days of Christmas, which works great if you don't have it ready on December 1st.

To make your own, just add numbers to the tags and hang them to baker's twine with mini clothespins. We decided to include simple little brown bags behind each letter to fill with a little treat.

I love these ideas and it is definitely something I can get the kids involved with. Now I need to find some mini clothespins...
