cut bag at seems. Cut the front & back of bag into strips about 1.5 to 2" wide.
cut bag at seams. Cut the front & back of bag into strips about 1.5” to 2” wide. (or whatever you need)
cut the strips into squares or rectangles.

cut the corners off your squares/rectangles & use a hole punch to make hole as centered as possible. This image is to show both front & back of tag.  Did I mention you're  making tags?

This is the pile of tags I made from one medium sized gift bag.  COOL!

The flashier the tag, the less need for expensive bows. I bought this green raffia for $5.  I don't think raffia ever runs out…at least, not in my house.

      Upcycle. I love finding ways of reusing things in new ways. I’ve used old cards to make tags, i’ve not had to buy any for about three years. Bonus, it is much more fun to make my own. ~amy

  4. Nice!!!
    And:
    HOW Photography. Heading for 2014 we’ve decided to change the title of our blog. Up to last week you’ve met and followed us when the blog was titled WCAL Photography. The decision is made from now on to develop further by naming our blog HOW Photography. It has all the do with our last name and the web…. See for more explanation our homepage. It’s possible that our followers are left in the bush and done have an idea who or what HOW Photography is or was when getting the notifications in the mailbox. Hopefully we’ve explained the situation in this message. So feel free to also see the last posts, because maybe you’ve missed them, on HOW Photography.
