I started doing some gift wrapping the other day – even though I haven’t quite finished the Christmas shopping! As usual I sat down to wrap, then remembered I hadn’t made any tags yet. So I went with the super easy, “made from what I had on hand” tags.
- red card
- a black pen
- some green washi tape
Want the quick tutorial? Apply it to whatever supplies you have!
- Cut the card to whatever size and shape you like. Mine are 2.5″ squares.
- Add an embellishment or two – for me a strip of washi tape. You could also use stickers, stamps, ribbon, sequins, beads, rub-ons, or just draw a design with pens, pencils or paint.
- Write a Christmas message and spaces for “To” and “From”. Those somewhat blurry words up the side of mine say “Merry Christmas”. (Yes, I really went all out on these – NOT!)
