Recycled Kleenex Box Gift Tags

Posted on June 25, 2011


Here are some gift tags I made from a pretty Kleenex box I had. The box was just so cute that I wanted to recycled the cardboard into something useful so I got out my tag die cutter. I cut as many tags as I could from the panels of the box and then used a hole punch to put a hole into the top of the tags. I used scrap yarn and some leather strips for ties to finish off my gift tags.


Here is one other set of gift tags I cut from another Kleenex box. The bottom had some plain white so I cut out a few of those to show you that with some pretty yarn, they make great gift tags too. For the other tags, I used pieces of plarn (plastic bag yarn) for my ties.

This is a really quick and easy project that you and the kids can both enjoy. Let the kids cut strips of yarn or other recycled materials for the ties and voilà — you have yourself some cute and free gift tags.

    How clever! Good thing I just went around the house the other day and collected four empty kleenex boxes and put them in the recycling bin!

    That is a neat idea. Did you use a punch? What size are the tags? Just think when the xmas boxes come out… Christmas tags.

    I used a Marvy Uchida punch that I bought at Michaels. The tags are 1-7/8″ wide by 2-3/4″ long. I used a hole punch to put the top hole in the tag.

    I love this idea. Thanks so much for sharing it. I have kids coming to visit every summer and this is a project as well as the Altoids pin cushion one that we can do on a rainy day. Hope you have great summer. 🙂

    Another great project, I love this one. This is perfect for Christmas, I use to make gift tags and I never thought about this Kleenex box.
