How to make your own festive Christmas tags
Wrapping presents is fun so why not go full out with special, personalized DIY Christmas tags? Easy to make, these tags are festive and embody every aspect of the Christmas season!
For this project I used:
Green card stock
Glue (glue stick and craft glue)
Silver or gold metal studs (stars and 4 mm round studs)
First, I made copies of some music sheets I had. If you don’t have any you can probably find some sheet music at your local library and make copies.
Next, I stained them with coffee to give the music sheets an old time look. To stain with coffee, place about ¼ cup of instant coffee on a cookie sheet. (I used fresh ground coffee and that worked as well). Pour boiling water into cookie sheet about halfway to the top edge of cookie sheet. Allow to cool to lukewarm. Place your music sheets into the coffee water making sure to coat both sides with coffee water. Remove and place on a clean cookie sheet.
To dry, you can use 1 of 2 methods. You can dry with a hair dryer or like I did place in the oven. Watch your papers carefully as you do not want to start a fire. Place in a preheated 200 degree oven for 5 -10 minutes, again watching carefully and removing as soon as dry.
Cut out Christmas tree shapes from the music sheets and then slightly larger Christmas tree shapes from the green card stock.
Glue the silver ribbon to the top using a glue stick and then glue the music sheet Christmas tree on top.
Embellish the tag with the metal studs gluing a star at the top and scattering the 4 mm circles using craft glue.
Don't just stop with the fancy wrapping paper; create these DIY Christmas tags as a final touch to any gift. Your recipient will love it!
