DIY GLITTER GIFT TAGS

November 19, 2019

Friends, I have another gift tag project for you, and this one can definitely go beyond the holiday season.

 

 

I can go on making tags all day, any day.  There are so many ways to be creative with gift wrapping, but today's project is a simple, yet elegant craft, and what makes it so is one of my favourite crafting ingredients: glitter!

 

 

To make a bunch of these tags, keep on reading on what you'll need (it's not a great big list of things at all!)

 

 

TOOLS & MATERIALS:

 

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

For each tag, cut card stock to 3 1/4" x 2 1/4".  The reason I suggest paper with the pattern on only one side is so that the back of the tags remain white, which is easier to write your greeting.  For this particular project, I chose paper that is plain, shiny, textured, and with a little pattern in it.  Anything will work! You decide on the right look for the right occasion.  

 

 

Make the tag shape with the tag punch board.

 

 

Apply double-sided tape all around the edges.  

 

 

Peel off the white film.

 

 

Then gently tap the glitter jar and cover every surface that has tape.  I chose pink ("Cotton Candy") and turquoise ("Wintermint") for my project.  

 

 

Then pull up the tag and shake off the excess glitter.  Repeat these steps to make a whole bunch of tags in different looks!

 

 

 

 

 

Total project time: approximately 30 minutes for six gift tags.
