Handmade Gift Tags
In addition to scrapbooking with my stash of supplies, I also like to find other ways to put my paper and embellishments to good use. This past week I created a few Christmas gift tags out of my supplies. This was such a fun way to use my supplies and create something meaningful that will add a special touch to a special gift.
Here are some pictures of the tags:
The tags were really fast and easy to make and will add a nice touch to gifts this Christmas.
Here is the short list of supplies that were needed to create these tags:
Basic Grey Patterned Paper and Fibers (Blitzen Collection), Making Memories Foam Alphabet Stamps and eyelets, white paint, black journaling pen.
I first stamped the word and then just trimmed around the word to create the tag. Next a smaller piece of paper was cut on a couple of the tags to create a place to write the To and From message. Last, an eyelet was set and a little ribbon tied on to add a finishing touch.
Even though these were made for Christmas, you can use your supplies to create a tag for any occasion. I suggest thinking of a word or words that you can stamp onto your tag that applies to the celebration. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Birthday: Celebrate, Happy, Party, How Old?, Surprise
Valentine’s day: Love, Sweet, Luv U
Thanksgiving: Gratitiude, Kindness, Harvest
Halloween: Boo, Trick or Treat, Fright Night
Even if you don’t usually give a gift on these holiday, you could always create something fun to give you your kids, spouse or friend just for the fun of it.
It would be fun to create packaging for your gift that matches the tags. One idea is covering paint cans with paper like I shared in this blog.
Enjoy this upcoming holiday season and enjoy sharing your love of creating with your friends and family.
