This is a cool DIY project that you can easily do at home. There are probably a hundred tutorials on how to do this all over the internet, but I wanted to give all of you a Christmas present so here it goes. This is a tutorial on how to make cute little gift tags that perfectly match your wrapping paper. They are little 2.5" square tags. The pics were shot at night so they are not perfect and a little bit off color :), but the tutorial is nice anyway!
Find some gift wrapping paper or use a recyclable option like magazine paper, newspaper, etc. This would look very nice in old magazine paper! And get a piece of cardstock, I used heavy printer paper.
Glue the gift wrap to the cardstock, use a soft cloth to rub the paper as you glue it down so that you don't get any air bubbles.
Cut a 2.5 X 5.0" rectangle using a trimmer.
Score in the exact middle with a folding tool, I used the drop-down arm of the rotary trimmer because it provides a straightedge guide for scoring. This simple step will make your tags look professional.
Pass the folding tool along the fold to flatten. This is another little step that makes your folds look very nice. I am using one hand while holding the camera with the other hand, so that's why the pic looks funny!
Use a corner rounder to round off corners and you are done!
Now you should have something like this:
If you use your punches you can get embellishments or use those as tags by themselves.
