Gift Name Tags

Wrapping presents has always been fun to me. Even as a kid I took pride in the fact that I could wrap my own gifts for others and get the corners right without help from our mom, unlike Kayla lol.

This year for the holiday season, I wanted to do a little nicer job at wrapping gifts for loved ones instead of tossing stuff into bags and calling it good, like I did last year. But I also don’t want to have to pay a whole lot more just to make it look good.

This project was pretty simple. I used scotch glitter tape because using loose glitter or spray glitter gets messy. I bought two different colors for some variation. Each package of tags came with twine and 20 tags. I needed two packages of tags but that amount needed will vary on person. The only other item you need for this project is some scissors. All items can be found in the crafting section in Walmart and the whole project cost $9.

I laid out a few tags at a time to work in small batches in case of interruption (interruptions are a given when you have a 5 month old baby).

Next you’ll roll out the tape to cover the width of the tag and trim it at the edges for a clean finish. Repeat until you have the desired height. The first one I made I went with three stripes high, but I ended up making the rest of them only two stripes tall.

Happy crafting.
