December Creative Crop - Holiday Gift Tag Idea

Post by jessicabree on Thu Dec 09, 2010 9:42 pm

I was shopping for holiday gift wrap and tags and realized that I wanted nice gift tags but wanted to be able to make them quickly. So I decided to start with some cute pre-made tags.

My idea is that you can dress up the cheap pre-made tags just for adults or people who will care, and then for those that won't appreciate the extra effort, you can just use the tags as is.

I started with these sticker tags from Target. You get a ton of them in a cute little tin.





To dress up the tags, I tried a few things.

This one is just backed with several layers of paper (and some pop dots). This one took a bit more time (20 minutes maybe) but I used up scraps of paper so it was very economical.



This next one was much faster to make but cost me a bit more since I used embellies on it



For the last one I used up some left over transparency scraps

Love this! My grandmother always gives me premade tags, and she's like...i'm sure you can figure out something to do with these.

And now I have some ideas! Thanks so much:)

I took some chipboard tags that I got on clearance last January and clustered them together and added a bit of bling. Smile

I love the clustered tags! They are way better put together and embellished!

I added points for the December challenge.
