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