Make unique gift tags with your wrapping paper scraps! Save money while you make wrapping paper gift tags!
Every year I wrap gifts for Christmas trying so hard not to waste any of the paper, and without fail there are always these awkward pieces large enough to wrap a small jewelry box but too small to wrap anything I’m actually giving!
Being a frugal person, I knew there had to be a good use for these wrapping paper scraps. After all, I spend money on the wrapping paper, I want to get maximum use out of it!
While browsing in a very popular semi-department store, I noticed all the fun and colorful supplies they were selling to wrap gifts. From paper to ribbon to embellishments to gift tags.
Then I remembered that scrap wrapping paper! I can use the scrap wrapping paper to make custom gift tags for my gifts!
What you will definitely need:
I have collected some scrapbooking supplies over the years. I like to use these supplies in various ways- decorating my planner(s), when making greeting cards, and now, for making DIY gift tags!
- two-sided tape or glue (I prefer tape)
- scrap wrapping paper pieces
- hole puncher
- ribbon (again leftover from last year)
- scissors or paper cutter
Extra fun stuff you might need:
- First, cut the wrapping paper in any shape you want (rectangle, square, circle, star, heart). If you have a paper cutter, stencils, or punches, they will all be very helpful in this step.
- Next, put two-sided tape of glue on the back of the wrapping paper. I use tape because I think it’s easier. If you use glue be careful because using too much will cause the paper to bubble.
- Then tape or glue the wrapping paper shape to cardstock. The card stock can be any color.
- Next cut the cardstock along the edge of the wrapping paper shape.
- Using your hole-puncher, punch a hole somewhere on one of the sides of your tag.
- Then use ribbon to thread through the hole, and tie a knot at the bottom near the tag.
- Using stickers, embellishments, of other fun supplies, decorate the front of your tag however you want.
- On the back, using the black marker, write the information for the gift.
