With Purim still fresh in my memory, one of the things that always stresses me out on the very festive and busy holiday is making gift tags at the last minute, as well as wrapping up gifts in celophane, yuck. This year I de-stressed myself by personally delivering homebaked and prepared foods on a sweet cake stand I'd made......no need for wrapping or a gfit card, and it was so much fun! That said, i could have used a few ready to use gift tags, and so I am now committing to spending this year using all my little scraps of paper for making fun gift tags, which I'm am going to keep in this jar! So do expect to see that jar fill up as the year progresses, and it is going to be so much fun, as of course I plan to make a nice assortment.
And best of all, no matter what time of year, I'll always have a way to add a little note or label to something that gets sent out the door to friends and neighbors! Oh and of course, these little tags are so simple to make, keep reading for the how-to......
- colored card stock scraps
- a decorative edging paper puncher (if you live in the NY/NJ area, I got some bargain ones at Amazing Savings, free plug for them)
- a hole punch
Punch the decorative edge along the whole length of paper scrap that you have, and then cut into tags. Make tags high enough to fold the top over for a double layer where you punch the hole. That's it!
