I recently picked up some old pickle boxes from the back of a store over in Lancaster county… They were advertised on craigslist as free, so I didn’t just steal them…Craigslist is great for free stuff.

After breaking them apart i used by scroll saw (recent purchase… Yeah!) to cut simple tag shapes.

The wood is quite thin and in some places flaky… so I had to pick an choose… (or should that pickle and choose. Sorry! Feeling the funnies today!)

I had some holiday themed ribbon in the drawer so wondered over to the local craft store and found these tree cut outs. Sure i could have used the scrol saw to cut them and may do in the future, but i was on a time crunch

Putting the gift tags together was as simple as glue, glue and stick.

After selecting which side I wanted to be the front. I glued a strip of ribbon around the tag.Gift Tag 4
