Hi, It's Maureen here today with quick and easy gift tags. I sat down to wrap gifts the other day and realized that I never purchased gift tags. What's a paper crafter to do? Make them of course!
My paper this year is very rustic, similar to kraft paper with a gold snowflake print. I wanted the tags to coordinate perfectly with my gifts.
These tags were so quick and easy to make. It took longer to die cut everything than it did to stamp and assemble them. When mass producing tags, or even cards, do one step at a time. This makes the process go much faster.
I started by die cutting all of my pieces. Since the tags and snowflakes are small, I could die cut both at the same time. Next I stamped the background, then distressed each tag. The sentiments were stamped one at a time beginning with the "From:" so I could ensure that I'd have enough room to fit it in. Thinking back now, I could have picked up both on an acrylic block and stamped them at the same time, saving myself one step. I added the snowflakes with dimensionals and embellished each tag with sequins.
Forgetting to buy tags didn't turn out so badly after all. I'm thrilled that each gift we give this year will have that handmade touch, making it even more special.
Happy Holidays everyone!
