Create 3 different Gift Tags from One Coke Zero box
I like to see what I can make out of the rubbish in the house and noticed that a Coke Zero box (and Coke boxes in general) have a lot of bold colours. So with that in mind I thought I'd try and make some gift tags from a Coke Zero box only and a little glue.

The allotted time is for one gift tag, to make all three would probably take over an hour (or it did for me at least)

    I started with a Coke Zero box, luckily it's full of black and red areas with a nice white divider section, this gave me a lot of options.

    The process for all three tags is fairly simple but I'll go through them one at a time. For the Mother's Day tag I cut out a rectangular section of the black portion of the box.

    Using the drink divider card for the white letters, I stuck them onto the black card.

    After I had them in place I made a kind of branch pattern with the inside of the box which is a kind of brown colour and then cut some small red hearts from the Coke logo.

    This was probably the simplest of the tags and in a bunch of simple tags, well...that's pretty simple! The 50 was cut from the black card and then stuck onto a red portion of the box.

    I then cut around the 50 with a scalpel to create a kind of border and stuck that onto one of the white circular parts of the drink divider.

    After that I realised it needed a little more so I mounted it onto some of the interior card and cut a zig zag pattern all the way around it.

    It seemed to look best around the neck of a bottle.

    I thought I'd give this one a brown background to try out a few different ideas. I cut a larger rectangular shape and then cut out the letters from some black card.

    Wanting to add a little red to the tag I made a kind of border/frame from the red parts of the box and then added some little white stars.

    The tags all finished and with a load of box left over, I could probably have made at least another 10 tags!
