From my previous post DIY Homemade Paper I showed you how much Christmas paper trash I saved from going to the landfill. I made a couple of batches of homemade paper to use for other crafts. I came up with one great idea that can save you a little money and also make your gifts look chic. Homemade Gift Tags!
1. Collect all of your homemade paper.
2. Decide on the size of tag you want, and trace circles all over your paper. If you have any blemishes on the paper, or wrinkles cut around them. Only use the best parts. Save the rest for another batch of homemade paper.
3. Cut out the tags.
4. Use a paper hole punch to cut the holes for the ribbon. I used my makingmemories Instant Setter tool to make the holes. I got this a long time ago but I want to learn what all it can do. I couldn’t find my hole punch and I like the size of the holes this tool made so I just used this.
5. Finished. Now you can adorn with ribbon of your choosing. I suggest just slipping it into the ribbon you are already using for your wrapped package. Or some nice twine or hemp string would look organic.
You can use these tags for bags, or wine bottles for a hostess. You can use it for any holiday or birthday. This was a fun and easy project. I hope you consider saving some Christmas paper from the trash to make these nice tags!
