5 Minute Gift Tags {Day 3 - 12 Days of Christmas at Sprout's House}

Twelve Days of Christmas at Sprout's House

Day 3 of Twelve Days of Christmas is a simple way to add a homemade touch to your Christmas presents.

What you need -
Blank tags Buff Tags
Paper punch Snowflake Punch
Glue PVA Glue
Red and white twine Butchers Twine
Time: 5-10 minutes

After that pretty much anything goes!

I started by punching a simple snowflake…..

…..With the second tag, I added a strip of washi tape first before punching a snowflake. (One of the great things about washi tape is that you can unpeel the tape if you don’t like the effect you’ve created.)

On the third tag, I rescued the little snowflake I had just punched out and glued that over a contrasting washi tape. (I only applied glue to the centre of the snowflake to give it a 3D effect.)

In the picture above, I used two contrasting washi tapes with the snowflake I had punched out of the first gift tag.

On this gift tag, I applied washi tape to the long edge and trimed it to the shape of the tag. Then simply punched two snowflakes in the tag.

The last tag consisted of 3 snowflakes that I punched out of ordinary printer paper. Again, I only glued the centre of the snowflake so that I could achieve a more 3D effect.

As I said anything goes – go wild!
Enjoy your weekend.
