There's nothing worse than discovering you've run out of gift tags while doing last minute Christmas gift wrapping. Why ruin a beautiful package by writing on it or marking it up with loads of tape and unprofessional, make-do tags? Here's an easy solution to your dilemma. You can put away that roll of scotch tape and try this neat alternative instead. Mix 2 parts white glue (such as Elmer's) with 1 part household vinegar. Add your favorite flavoring to taste. You can use a liquid flavoring or regular old Kool-Aid mix. Cut out pictures from Christmas cards, magazines or computer printouts, apply two coats of the mixture, allowing to dry between coats. Just lick and stick. Voila, instant stickers, gift tags, address labels, etc.
