Welcome to Day Two of #HolidayCraftParty! Gift Tags
A little over a week ago I went to a Wayfair and Boston Blogger event Home For the Holidays Boston or #HFTHBoston. It was such a fun day of crafting, home styling and menu planning. I wanted to share with you gift tags that I made with Kate from DomestiKated Life.
We made paint chip christmas tree gift tags. Super simple and will make a big impact on your gift wrapping. Did I mention they will cost you next to nothing to make.
What you’ll need:
- Paint samples (free at your local hardware store)
- Hole Punch
- Double Stick Tape
Step 1. Taking the paint sample that you would like to be the tree, now you don’t have to just go green you can get a little funky. Start by cutting up the sample in a straight line and then meet it with a 90 degree cut. Making the trunk and the base of the Christmas tree.
Step 2. & 3. Cut at a 45 degree angle and then cut straight across and repeat this three times to create the body of the tree.
Please note: You can trace a tree or draw the Christmas tree if freehand is difficult for you.
Step 4: Using double stick tape, tape the back side of the tree and place it on a contrasting paint chip that will be your tag. Once the tree is place trim the tag portion of your paint chip. Then punch a whole for your string or ribbon.
I can’t wait to bombard the hardware store for more holiday color paint chips. The possibilities are endless and fit right into my Christmas budget. I think holly and berries might be my next gift tag.
