Resolve to Recycle: Free Gift Tags Download

Did you make a resolution for 2012? 
Here's mine: I want to help make recycling and upcycling so cool that everyone wants to do it.


In fact, I'd like to make it positively scandalous NOT to recycle, reuse, and repurpose everyday items!
Can't you hear it now?
    "Gasp! Egads, Reginald....we have a non-recycler in our midst!"
"Surely you must be mistaken, Darling..."


Just kidding about the scandalous part...do it because it's cool, it's good for the planet, and it stretches your creativity and imagination!


You've probably seen my projects like the PAPERLESS gift wrapping tutorial...








...or using everyday items like aluminum foil to create fabulous blingThere's so much more on the way in 2012!


So, here's the deal. To get this  R3 ball rolling...
{What's R3? Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose!}

...I've created a gift from me to you:  a free page of 12 printable Gift Tags

These gift tags will help explain your zany upcycling antics while revving up the Cool Factor and creating R3 converts.

Let's make the movement go viral, shall we?
Stay tuned for more amazing R3 projects!

Great post, and I love your tags! The artistic 'earth' is really cool. I would say that, yes, downloadable is a word, no hyphen. :) Thanks!

I guess I should have asked first, but I posted a pic from your blog to spread the word about R3, with a link back here to your freebie post. I assumed, (usually a bad idea), that that was ok, since you said ...movement go viral... here is my blog address:

Good idea to make it scandalous to not 3R. I am afraid though, that too often I'd be the ONE whispered about who doesn't. ;)

My daughter is totally on board and makes art from recycled items. I am shooting her an email with the url to this post.

I resolve to get better at 3Ring this year. Thanks for the gentle and creative push!

I commend you for wanting to make recycling and re-purposing viral. I try to recycle as much as I can. What I can't I give away and hope someone else will recycle the item.
