You can make some really cute bookmarks to give as gifts or to use to help adorn your gifts. Attach them to the gift wrapping or to the bows.
I have some really cute ones cut out from old greeting cards. Just find an image on the card that you like, such as a flower or a house or some animals, and cut it out. You can glue felt on the back of the bookmark if you want, or even hotglue on a homemade ribbon or tassel.
I was going through a book last night and found one I made, and that reminded me about these.

Ness: I'll probably try the bookmark idea for old cards. I also use them for name tags for gifts. However, I copied the following idea from a newspaper which I cut out last year. We get quite a few cards where I work and I sent cards to the second organization since it is only about 45 minutes from where I live. My aunt lives there and says it appears to be a reputable organization. I am sure there are other organizations which accept cards and there may be one in your area if you are interested.

I cut up packaging of fancy toilet soaps, herbal tea. That way you can get 4 or 5 bookmarks out of one package. Then you can punch a hole in the top and thread through embroidery thread(s) to make a tassel. Often price tags from newly bought clothes especially " brands" can be used the same way. (09/13/2004)
