DIY gift tags are so much fun to make.
The craft house had a massive clean-out on the weekend. Boxes and shelves choking full of stuff were emptied to reveal many things that haven’t seen the light of day in like, maybe a year or so. Instantly, a truckload of ideas came rushing in.
There was also a roll of unused self adhesive contact sheets and suddenly, memories of covering children’s books came flooding in. How frustrating were those pesky bubbles? Did you also cover your children’s books?
There was also a mountain of magazines with beautiful images in them so I started cutting them up and discarded the rest into the recycling bin. The cut-outs and contact sheets paired together just made sense.
Don’t you love a-ha moments like this too?
So, here’s a simple DIY for you to try. CAUTION: Highly Addictive so make sure you have a lot of contact sheets on hand.
- Gather your supplies of magazines, Designer Series Paper, self-adhesive contact sheets, templates, punches, dies, scissors, craft knife, string and ribbons
- Cut out images from magazines with dies, punches or templates. Do the same with Designer Series Papers
- Pry open the contact sheets with a craft knife and insert your cut-outs. Trim the excess
- Punch a hole and attach a string or ribbon
- Wrap the tags and give it to someone as a gift
