Project Details

Forget those store bought tags this year and create your own!


  1. Create The Tag: To make the tag (bottom left, on picture) cut a 4-1/2” x 2-1/2” rectangle from White paper. Cut off both corners on one short end about ½” from the corner. Glue to Orange paper. Use the paper edgers to trim the Orange paper across the bottom and along the sides of the tag. Cut the paper at the top even with the tag shape using plain scissors.

  2. Write Your Salutation: Using Holiday Green paper, write the words individually leaving at least half an inch space around each word.

  3. Cut Around Each Word: This does not have to be even. Cut out words and glue onto Blue paper then trim the Blue paper leaving a narrow border. Glue to the front of the tag.

  4. Punch or Cut Stars: From Yellow paper cut your stars, then glue to the front of the tag to decorate. Punch a hole at the top of the tag and tie it to your gift.

  5. Create More: Create more tags by using different color paper and shapes.
