God Bless you!


“God bless you”.  You may say this when someone sneezes.  I am  going to show you how you can recycle your empty Kleenex box so that your blessings can continue.  





These boxes come in such a wonderful array of colors and patterns:











After breaking down my tissue boxes for recycling one day, I thought that there must be some way that I could reuse them instead of just sending them straight to the recycling center.  










Gift tags were the first thing that came to my mind, so I got out one of my tag punches,  










then I began cutting away any flaps and such that I would not be able to use.  Have no fear, these pieces went into the recycling bin.








The card board used for these boxes are typically of a heavier weight. You will want to do your punching on a solid surface so that you can put some “power behind your punch”.  You should get a nice clean cut.





With proper placement of your punch, you should be able to get roughy 6-8 tags out of one box.










I punched a hole in the tag so that I could attach a ribbon to it. The hole punch I used was a rectangle one.







Now, with a color coordinated ribbon, my tags are ready to be placed on a package.
These colors are perfect for spring. They would be great for an Easter or Mother’s Day gift!

  1. I think I may have to get a tag punch with my next 40% off coupon! (after I finish my page that I haven't even started yet for Tuesday -- haven't started yet, and yet here I am on the computer).
