Today I'm getting my packages ready to ship. I got the gifts wrapped, but decided I wanted to do something handmade too. So I made gift tags.
This was, admittedly, one of the easier projects that I've done, however, I don't think that makes them any less lovely.
If you'd like to make them too, you'll need:
The Mrs. Claus's Kitchen Stack from Die Cuts with a View*
A glue stick
Scissors or a paper trimmer
Spare piece of paper
Hole punch and ribbon (optional)
Scotch tape (optional)
Decide which of the tags you want to use, then carefully cut them out, trimming the tear off edge at the top if you use any of those. Using the scissors and a ruler, or the paper cutter, trim the plaid sheet into squares or rectangles that are slightly larger than the tags you will be using (mine were 4"x6" and 4"x4").
Now you've got all of your pieces, but don't put your scissors away yet.
Repeat this process until all of your gift tags are made. At this point, you can further trim the cards to the size or shape that you think looks best. Then, if you'd like, just punch a hole with the hole punch, run a bit of ribbon through, and attach to your package. Or you can attach them like I am -- with a bit of Scotch tape. Enjoy!
