Christmas Crafts~Homemade Gift Tags and Bags
If you have old Christmas cards this is the perfect time to get them out. I'm going to show you some gift tags that I made from my old ones.
I used oval, circle and square templates. Place the template on the part of the card you'd like to use, trace with a pen and cut out.
You can use straight or decorative edged scissors.
If you have cards with patterns, you can turn these into pretty gift tags too.
Simply place a gift tag pattern on the card, trace and cut out.
Punch a hole at the top and they are ready for some ribbon.
Several of my card had glittery edges so I put them to good use too.
I cut them into strips.
And layered them criss-cross on a cardstock gift tag.
I also added little bows.
Now for the gift bags! Dawn from The Feathered Nest recently shared this wonderful tutorial on how to make these Very Easy Gift Bags.
I used sheet music scrapbook paper(on the right) and I also copied some sheet music I had onto white printer paper.
The greenery is from our Christmas tree.
I glued the sheet music onto the front of the brown paper gift bags. Then tied the greenery and gift tag together with ribbon and tied a bow.
I attached it to the bag of a little hot glue.
All ready for gifts! Let me know if you try any of these ideas!
