A BOOKMARK is a classic gift that we receive at least once in our lifetime. Interestingly in today’s context, we are literally rewarded with one each time we purchase an apparel or fashion item. Surprised? Take a closer look at the label tag when you next purchase your favourite brand.
· Promote environmental friendliness through recycling

What you will need

· Any craft-based items you can find in the home including coloured paper, glue, scissors, markers, etc
The next shopping trip when you load up with clothes and fashion items, don’t be in a hurry to junk the labels (photo left) that come along with your purchases. Some of these label tags are produced from relatively high quality artcard. For the more up-market products, you might even find metallic slings that hold the tags together.
Coming in different colours, shapes and sizes, these label tags are used by my family members as bookmarks. With my kids, I get them to re-design the label tags in whatever forms they deem fit (photo below). Try it as a family activity the next time.
Another possible use:
If you are short of a gift tag for the next birthday present, you could decorate it with a recycled label tag!
