Confetti Christmas Gift Tags

Hey Giggles Galore readers! It’s Cathy from Party HarDIY here again with your monthly dose of color. Soon enough, you’ll be wrapping all those presents to put them under the Christmas tree. Affordable, yet adorable, Christmas tags are hard to come by. Usually it’s that cheap holographic green or red with archaic touches of gold- eek! That’ll totally throw off the whole “modern Christmas” vibe you’ve got going on in the rest of the house! What if there was a fun, easy, and best of all affordable way to wrap those gifts? Well, let’s start by making these Confetti Christmas Gift Tags!

You will need:

  • Cardstock paper (I got mine from Michael’s, similar here)
  • Tag punch (here)
  • Various paper punches (similar: star, snowflake, triangle, circle, bow)
  • Vellum paper (similar here)
  • Glitter and confetti (similar here, here, and here)
  • Embroidery floss or string (similar here)
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue gun

Directions:

Using your punch shape, cut out various colors of cardstock. You’ll need two shapes for each tag- front and back.

Center your shaped punch in the middle of the tag, and punch out the shape. Since you’ll be adding the confetti, you want to make sure there’s enough room on all sides to tape it behind.

Variations:

For the tree, I punched the tag with the triangle punch 3 times in a row. For the ornament, I punched a circle, then cut out a small trapezoid for the “hanging” part. If you have 2-3 sizes of circle punches, you could make a snowman! The options are endless.

Cut a small square of vellum paper that will cover your shape, plus a little extra. Cut another one to match.

Tape 3 sides of your vellum paper shut to create a small pouch. I cut my tape in half widthwise so that it would be thinner and not show through the cut-out. You don’t need tons of tape, just enough to seal the edges.

Fill your vellum pouch with glitter and confetti. You want enough so it looks full, but not so much that it bulges.

Tape the top of your pouch shut, and tape it into place behind your cut-out. I put tape only on the top and bottom, which was enough.

Add glue to the back of the cut-out tag, and place the blank one on top. Squeeze it shut until it dries, and add more glue if needed.

If you want, you can also embellish your tag. I added some glitter, rhinestones, pearls, and star confetti to enhance it a bit and add some sparkle. I thought it looked ho-hum before, and these added a little oomph without taking away from the overall design.

Create a small hole in your tag to hang it. You can use a hole punch, but it might be a little thick. I used an awl for mine.

Add a string or embroidery floss, write who it’s for (and from), and you’re all done!

I think these tags are great because they’re interactive. It’s so fun to shake them and see the glitter and confetti moving around. They’re also great for Christmas crafting parties. Each person can purchase one punch, plus some cardstock and glitter, and everyone can share. This way, you have tons of options for only a fraction of the cost!

So, which tag is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!
