Being addicted to paper as I am, I hate to see any beautiful papers go to waste. So I've had a lot of fun making gift tags to give as gifts figuring who can't use more gift tags this time of year? I know I've wrapped many a present and then realized I had no way to personalize it / indicate the recipient.
This is one of those things that the more you make, the more you want to make!
- Gift tags (you can buy packages of ready made tags or cut your own. I cut mine using my Silhouette)
- Paper scraps
- Random embellishments : rhinestones, washi tape, punched shapes buttons, etc. ( this is a great way to use up onsie twosie leftovers)
These are some I made for a Hanukkah gift. I cut the dreidels using my Silhouette, randomly covered them w/ embossing ink and then embossed with gold embossing powder.
One friend of mine decorates her tree in bright greens, pinks, purples so I coordinated these tags around those colors. To embellish I used punched glitter stars, snowflakes, sequins, and glitter ribbon and had some Japanese Mizuhiki cord in my stash that coordinated.
Tip: I apply the papers slightly wider than the tag and then trim the edges all at once so they're uniform.
I used the same idea for these in black, white and green, using white Mizuhiki cord on some.
After seeing these, Mr. Chocolate asked "where are our tags" so guess what I'm working on ?
