Have you ever made handmade gift tags? Sure they could take a bit of time. But they sure make a big impact when tied to your packages.
Wrapping Christmas presents is one of my favorite things to do. Actually wrapping any type of gift is my favorite thing. I think I am addicted to ribbon. I have a ton of ribbon that I love to add to packages.
Even though I have a lot of ribbon on hand, I don’t always have gift tags on hand. Luckily though, they are pretty easy to make when you have the right tools on hand.
For this project you will need:
How To Make a Christmas Ornament Gift Tag
To get started, decide how big of a christmas ornament you want. Use a circular object and trace a circle onto your mixed media paper with the MONO Graph Pencil.
Choose 2 coordinating ABT Pro marker colors. I used 2 different shades of red. But you could use any of the colors you want or have. Add color to your circle with the brush tip of the ABT Pro using the lighter of the colors first.
Fill the entire circle with the lighter color and then use the darker color to add some darker areas to the top and bottom of the Christmas ornament. Then start to add a bit more of the darker color to the middle section of the ornament.
Leave a little bit of the lighter color showing through to give the effect of a highlight on the ornament. Use a white gel pen to add a little shiny mark to the area where you left some of the lighter color showing through.
Use the MONO Twin to draw a top to your ornament.
You can leave it alone at this point, or fill in the top hanger piece with some color. I picked a little gold color to color it in.
Once you are done with your Christmas Ornament, it is time to make it into a tag. All you have to do is use your scissors and cut it out! Then it is ready to tie to any beautifully wrapped gift ready for gifting.
Didn’t it turn out so cute? And how fun would it be to create Christmas Ornament Gift Tags in all the colors!!
