I've been doing a couple of guest writing over at MamasLatinas.com on holiday decoration DIY's and wanted to share with you my latest article. It's on how to make snowman gift tags. It's a great way to add a little personal touch to your gift bags, and it's SUPER easy to make. Hope you have a great weekend! By the way, we're taking our son to Disney this week (for the first time ever) and I can't wait to share with you some pictures when we get back (you can also follow me on Instagram if you'd like @viva_fashion).
So it's mid December and all the stockings are hung, the gifts are wrapped, the decorations are set and every single detail has been thought of and executed flawlessly for the holidays at everyone's house. Wouldn't that be a beautiful thing if it were anywhere close to true? The big day may be fast approaching but there's still time to slow down and enjoy the season. I've shown you how to repurpose your old decorations and given you some projects that are sure to make you the envy of your neighborhood.
This time, I want to help you bring a personal touch to your gifts. When it comes to gifts, we are usually consumed more with not forgetting 2nd and 3rd cousins and their kids then what we're actually gifting. This snow man gift tag is a simple DIY that will show people you really care. After all, that is what the holidays should be about. The best part is, this personal touch can be completed with things you may already have around your home.
Supplies: Thin Cardboard or Card Stock (any color), white sheet of paper, Single Hole Punch, Twine (you can use yarn or ribbon), Glue, Scissors, and of course, White Buttons.
1. Cut out the shape of a gift tag by sight or trace the shape onto the cardstock using a gift tag you already have.
2. Tear a piece of white paper for snow effect and glue at the bottom of tag.
3. Glue white buttons onto cardboard to mimic a snowman figure (embellish if you'd like)
4. Punch hole at top of tag and attach twine with enough slack to hang from or tape to gift/bag.
What other ways could you personalize your gift tags?
