Very Merry DIY Christmas Gift Tags - A Craft Café Blog Hop


I am very proud and happy to participate in this blog hop organized by a great craft blogger, Claire from Heart Handmade UK, a truly great idea as we draw to the end of the year and Christmas is approaching. 

Make sure to check out these inspiring blogs for more awesome ideas:


These fancy Christmas tree gift tags are one of the easiest DIY I've ever made, and a pretty way to add a personal touch to gifts.



I was excited to use these tags on my Christmas gifts, they're so easy to make, and I think they look so pretty!


Supplies:
  • cupcake cups - I used some mini-muffin cups  for smaller tags
  • scissors
  • double-sided tape (with small paper projects I prefer this kind of tape instead of glue - no mess, no fuss)
  • needle
  • string
  • fancy tape for a nice finish
  • embellishments - beads, bells, charms, glitter glue, etc.


Step One: Fold the cupcake cup in half twice making a firm crease.



Step Two: Using a small scissors (it's easy to handle) cut along the line of the crease - each cup will make two triangles. Next, line up the edges and glue them using the double-sided tape.

Step Three: After deciding how many triangles you are going to use (I made some tags using three, and some using four), attach them to each other using the double-sided tape on their back. For a nice finish, and to cover up the double-sided tape, add a pretty tape to the back.


Step Four: Cut a piece of a string and using a needle attach it to the tree. Tie the two string ends together, but not before embellish it with a few beads. Now you have a handmade hangtag. 


There are so many different variations you could do to get creative with these tags, just by switching up the cup colors, size and pattern, the color string, or the beads you use.



Happy crafting!

  8. Olá, Regina,

    Que pena você estar com problemas com os seus biscoitos. Geralmente eu acho as massas de biscoitos refrigeradas norte-americanas difíceis de trabalhar, pois com os ingredientes brasileiros resultam moles. De qualquer modo eu faço estes biscoitos, mas dão trabalho, rsrs. Olha, neste post abaixo cito dois biscoitos (de nozes e de coco) que são fáceis e resultam muito bons, caso você aceite uma sugestão, rsrs.

    Quanto aos seus pacotes com as etiquetas e decorações fofas só posso dizer que amo muito tudo isso, rsrs. Estava pensando em embalar alguns dos meus presentes hoje e aqui encontrei uma boa inspiração, thanks!

    Um beijo e votos de que a sua semana seja excelente!

      Eu vou tentar mais uma vez fazer os biscoitinhos, se nao der certo dessa vez vou desistir, pelo menos por enqto.
      Obrigada pelo link, o biscoitinho de coco dever ser delicioso.

      Um grande abraço

  9. Ah, quanto ao tempo de forno dos biscoitos de nozes, falei em 20/25 minutos porque os coloco em forno frio, caso você preaqueça o forno o tempo cai para metade. Mas eles estão assados quando começam a corar as bordas.
