Christmas Gift Tags

A few months ago, I found an idea for recycling grocery ads. When i saw it I thought it would be cute for a card, but ended up using the idea to make Christmas gift tags for my card swap.
So I cut up Walmart Grocery ads, since they were glossy, and had lots of red and green in them.

I made myself a stencil, and cut out a folded tag from white card stock and similar shaped tags from red and green card stock.

I drew Christmas trees onto the tags, and cut out the tree using a craft knife.

I glued the strips of the ads to the back of the trees, then secured the tress to the white tags.
Lastly, I punched a hole in the top of the tag and threaded a ribbon through each one.
