Christmas Tags + Gift Box



Christmas presents just aren't complete without some kind of cute tag added to them.
Make a few sets of tags now and you'll be all ready to go once the gift giving begins this holiday season! These little boxes are the perfect size to hold not only your tags, but some festive twine as well.


here's what you'll need:
• paper mache round box (4x4x2 - found ours at joann's)
• ribbons and/or ric rac
• twine and mini clothespins
• white acrylic craft paint
• pencil with a new eraser
• coordinating sheet of cardstock
• 3" circle punch
silhouette or scallop punch
• 8x10 tag sheet (two colors to choose from)

for the tags:
• print out your sheet of tags and punch them out with the 3" circle punch
• cut out 3.5" scallop circles with the silhouette or a scallop punch and adhere to the back of the tags

for the box:
• dip your pencil eraser into the paint and add polka dots all over your box and lid
• once the paint has dried, glue your ribbons around the outside of the lid


• wrap a bunch of twine around those little clothespins
• you can punch small holes into the tops of the tags to thread the twine through, or use the twine to wrap around your gifts


Why not keep a set for yourself and make one for a friend or two while you are at it!!
