I am absolutely obsessed with fancy gift tags. Typically I scour post-holiday sales for deals on pretty tags I can hang on to. Last year, I didn’t make it out to the shops in time and so this year I am making my own!
This year I am using a lot of office supplies in my gift wrap. I love the industrial-like supplies mixed with the fancy of Christmas. Plus, I’m using up old supplies and saving money all at the same time.
About a year ago, I purchased a bunch of office supply shipping tags. They’re a great deal (less than five cents a piece) and can be used for so many different projects – from organization and storage to gift packaging.
I decided to grab a few and embellish them with some craft supplies to create simple holly berry gift tags.
First I cut a short length of ribbon. I folded it in half and stapled it to the tag to simulate the holly berry leaves.
I used my mini stapler and colored staples to anchor the ribbon to the tag.
The berries are just “candy dots” purchased from the scrapbooking isle in the craft store. They’re older basics and can often be found for a great deal!
After that, I just added a little bit of green baker’s twine so that it could be tied to the package.
You could easily replicate this project using other supplies around the house, like buttons, if you couldn’t find the candy dots.
