QUICK TIP: MATCH THE TAG TO THE WRAPPING PAPER

October 30, 2015

I love buying these mini paper rolls in the bargain section at Michaels:

 

 

You can find the most beautiful and intricate patterns for less than a toonie! (For those of you who don't know what that is, it's a two dollar coin!) :)

 

And you get so much out of them.  However, as interesting as these patterns may be, sometimes it's hard to find the perfect tag to match.

 

So I found a solution: make a tag using the same paper!

 

 

This easy tip was brought on by trying to find something to compliment this package I wrapped for my mom's birthday earlier this week:

 

 

I couldn't.  So I decided to use the same paper to make a pretty tag.

 

It's easy, but you need a few tools first:

 

  • Any large craft punch

  • White card stock

  • Glue stick

 

Let me stress the importance of using a heavy weight paper than a regular sheet of printer paper:

 

  • The wrapping paper adheres better to it, and it gives a smooth surface - ready for cut.

  • It reduces the chance of tears when the shape is punched out.

 

 

  

 

Problem solved!

 

Thanks all for taking a look today.  If you have further tips to add to this project, leave it in the comments!
