Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year for me, with the shop and workshops, on top of trying to make it a special time of the year for my two little children. So, finding simple ideas that make a gift POP that don’t take any effort (shh don’t tell!), like this one, are right up my alley.
These handmade Christmas gift tags are a really simple way to dress up a gift. Here’s a quick tutorial how to make them.
blank gift tags (or make your own with sturdy card that’s 11 x 5.5cm and a hole punch)
scraps of decorative paper
I used the circle die for my Sizzix Big Shot machine to cut out the circles but you do not have to have one of these to make these tags. Use a compass, or any small round object and trace around. My circles are 4cm in diameter.
First draw the top of the bauble and the line down the centre of the tag.
Glue your circle and place it on the tag so it slightly overlaps the black lines.
Attach some ribbon or baker’s twine to the top of the tag and write a personal message on the other side.
