It’s Christmas eve! Ack! Do you know I just started all my wrapping yesterday and I’m still nowhere near done! I’ll be up super late tonight getting everything all done! Like always I wanted to continue my tradition of making all my own gift tags for all the presents! Since it’s so late in the game I really needed them to be something simple and something I could make with basic craft supplies I already had on hand.
- Card stock (two colors)
- Snowflake Paper Punch
- 2″ Circle Punch
- Mini Glue Dots
- Small rhinestones (about the size of a pencil eraser)
First cut long strips of card stock at 2.5 inches wide. Then cut them about 4.25-4.5 long. Fold in half. Use bone folder if you have one to give it a nice crisp fold. Make the amount you need all at once.
Take your punches and make one circle and one snowflake for every gift tag. Make sure to do half in each color so you can alternate easily. Then adhere the circles to the fronts of the gift tags, centered. I used my Xyron Sticker Maker to adhere all my circles. I love mine and actually have several of them in different sizes. My kids think these are SO fun to use! If you don’t have one and you like to craft I recommend adding one!
Next, add a mini glue dot to the back of the center of the snowflake and then add to center of circle. Then add another mini glue dot to the center of your rhinestone and add the rhinestone to the center of the snowflake. Repeat the process until all your gift cards are made.
I really like to make sure I alternate colors so the gift tags really pop off the paper and depending on my paper choices I know I have more than one option to match up.
I love adding a little handmade touch to all of my gifts. I’m big on wrapping every single present so I want to make sure all those hours wrapping amount to the best presentation possible.
