Playing card gift tags...

Over the weekend, when I was rummaging around my craft room, I noticed a box of vintage playing cards that I thought would make fun Christmas tags.
I glued the playing cards onto tags and then used initial stickers and fun ribbon to complete the look.

I realize they don't like very Christmasy...so I also made a few traditional looking tags too. 

Like every weekend, it went by way too fast.  I'm overdue in thanking some of my favorite blogging friends for recent Christmas gifts and I've been busy putting final touches on a special Kim K. Christmas give-away.  Lots happening this week on the blog.  Be sure to check back often!  Happy Monday!

Kim, I love your cute tags. We had these Whitman card games when I was a kid. (They are looking a bit tattered, but I still have them.) The circus version of Old Maid was my very favorite!

Oh, I love all those vintage cards you have! I recognize the animal rummy ones, but haven't seen the others. They're all so cute! Especially as gift tags!

Your tags are just too cute, Kim! What a fun and whimsical idea! I just saw someone (can't remember who!) use some Eiffel Tower playing cards they bought at Jo Ann Fabrics. Have a great day!

I love those. Very cute!

This weekend did fly by - and I don't even have darling tags to show for it. Of course this just encourages others to buy those things they really want but can't figure out what to do with. Does that make you an enabler? Helen says it makes you FABULOUS!
