Open up the glued end of an empty large tissue box so it is now flat. Trim off the logo area. You can use the plain white area if you wish. Trim off ends and save them. You can get three tiny gift tags from the ends. You can make 4 cards, 1 bookmark, and 24 tiny tags from a single box or 7 cards and 21 tags from one box!
For gift tags, punch a small hole in the top and add a ribbon to tie on to the gift. Attach a ribbon to the top of your bookmark the same way. Not all boxes measure the same, so don't worry if you don't come up with the same cuts or think you made a mistake.

I used this recently with my crafting group. They pasted pictures on them and then added glitter around the picture. They looked amazing.
This is a good idea. No waste. I take last years Christmas cards & tear off the front pic. Then use it as a gift tag. If I need to have it hang from the gift I punch a hole in & use yarn (string would work, too) or just tape it to the pkg. Kids especially like the cute cards. The same could be done for any occasion.
