Well, it’s officially the last day of August, and 2020 has gone by either really fast, or unbearable slow, we can’t figure out which one. With the general consensus being that 2020 has been the pits, we are looking forward to the holiday cheer in our near future.
Today our designer, Jamie, has made a few fun gift tags to spruce up your packages and treat containers. These are simple and easy projects that go a long way to add that personal touch to those gifts. Beginners find this project enjoyable, and advanced crafters can add a lot to the design to make them more intricate. Follow along and make a few of your own in preparation for the holidays.
Jamie explains how she made the tags below:
- To make the tag I used the Nested Tagged Stitch Die and used the largest die to cut red decorative paper. The second to the largest die was used to cut white cardstock and green glitter paper.
- Die-cut the white tag with the Christmas Tree cutaway Die.
- Stamp “with love” with Crimson Color Fuse Ink as shown.
- Glue the white tag over the green glitter tag then onto the larger red decorative paper tag.
- Use a decorative close pin to clip the tag onto the bag.
For this gift container I did a little upcycling, being a crafter it’s always hard to throw things away that might be useful in some way. This clear container is a side salad container from Chick-fil-A, when I saw it I just knew it had to be good for something even though it has a clear logo on the top of the lid.
- This tag was made the same way as above except the words were stamped with Hearth Color Fuse Ink and popped up on the tag with foam squares.
- The red ribbon on the top of the tag was stapled on.
- Red shred was put inside of the container with the gift nestled in the shred.
- The container was then wrapped with red ribbon and the gift tag was popped up on the container with a foam square.
Now we don’t know about you, but we are so excited to make some of these for this years gifts under the tree. We might even get our kids involved and have them make some as a holiday craft. We hope you enjoyed todays tag idea and are adding some “jolly” vibes to your month by starting holiday crafting early. Let’s end 2020 on a high note!
