Hello there =)
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The gifts are bought and mostly wrapped, holiday treats are ready for sharing and I have a little bit of craftiness making my fingers twitch. Why not whip out a last minute Christmas craft?
I don’t give too many homemade gifts because I don’t want to take the time and I’m afraid of rejection. Hey, at least I can be honest with myself ;)
What I can do is homemade, personalized wrappings! In this case, gift tags. Today’s post won’t be so much of a tutorial, but more of a “look what I did”. I hope you enjoy.

Start with some gift tags. You can buy some or make your own base tags. I found mine at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. So I bought about 6 packs. Cause, why not…
If you recall from past projects, I’m fairly simple with my crafting. Not too many frills or complicated steps. This is no different. I knew I wanted to do simple, black ink stamping and embellish upon that.
I picked a few of my favorite Christmas stamps and got to stamping.
In the left panel, I used a tiny paint brush to dap glue on some of the trees, sprinkled some glitter and TA-DA!
The top right I found a purpose for the shaped glitter I bought. Again, some glue and just sticking them down. I only had 3 shapes of chunky glitter so one tag got an assortment of rhinestones.
The bottom left was fun with washi tape =) Stick and trim. That’s it!
After making about a dozen stamped tags I still wanted to do more… So I went to Pinterest for some simple ideas.
The little trees above are what resulted =) See my Pinspiration here.
The trunks are little snippings of leftover brown felt. A yellow rhinestone for the star, tiny pom poms for ornaments and little bit of glue and dusting of glitter to make snow.
Totally adorable, right?
Do you make your own tags? I think I might make a habit out of it. Maybe get a little more artsy… Don’t worry, I’ll keep it under 30 minutes =)
