Gift Tags On A Budget

Following on from yesterdays post when I sort of challenged myself to make a “pile” of tags for under £2,  this is what I have come up with…..
Kraft Gift Tags….. from one A4 sheet of Kraft card (35p) I managed to get 12 quite large tags each measuring 10cm x 5cm.

All I did then was add a few doodled branches and leaves ….. simples, and I reckon I am well within budget!

I think my favourite tags are the music ones …. And how would I wrap a small present using these tags ….. and still on a budget?
Using maps for wrapping paper and tags……. either using plain brown paper or a page from the atlas or sheet music book as the pages are quite large!  Voila!!!
