Tree Branch gift tags

You will need:

Small tree branches (we used pear tree branches)

electric Miter saw and drill

fine sand paper


Clamp the branches to a sturdy workbench, wear safety goggles then using the Miter saw cut ¼ inch slices from the branches. For a bit of variety you can also cut thinner branches lengthwise then into small pieces. You can also use small off cut pieces of timber you might have in your garage. Drill a hole in one end of each.  Lightly sand any rough edges using sandpaper. Insert a loop of twine. Write names with a pencil then the tags can be re used next year (lightly re sand tags to remove pencil written names).
