A Gift and a Tag in one!

The holidays are just around the corner. Part of the fun of the holidays is, of course... the presents. And with presents comes... wrapping. And with wrapping comes... gift tags! After all, how can you tell whose gift is whose without gift tags?

We have come up with this cute project on how to make gift tags with our Matchbook Note Pads. They are quick, easy, and fun to do. It's a great craft to make with your kids and grandkids. Also good as an after school activity or to make with scout groups.

Alone they make great small, inexpensive gifts or give-aways, and can be sold at craft fairs and church bazaars. Teachers will love them!

And, as a bonus, after the gift they are attached to is opened you get to keep the Matchbook Note Pad Gift Tag as a little "extra gift". It has a little pad of paper inside that you can use for notes or lists or phone numbers .

You will need:

Matchbook Note Pads
Self-Stick Calendar Pads (the Small Size fit perfectly!)
Double Stick Tape
Card Stock
Bakery Twine or String
Christmas Stickers
Rubber Stamps
1/8" Paper Punch

Instructions:

  1. Cut Card Stock into strips 1/2" x 2-1/2" to fit the bottom of the Matchbook Note Pad (which I will abbreviate as MBNP from now on) with a little extra as a tab on the side  
  2. Use the Double Stick Tape to adhere the Card Stock to the bottom of the MBNP.
  3. Punch a 1/8" hole (see picture below for these three steps):                                                                                                      
  4. Attach a sticker to the front (we show snowmen with google eyes. There are also some Santa samples at the end of this article. Use whatever you have.)                                                                                                                                                             
  5. Open the MBNP and add a Small Self-Stick Calendar Pad.                                                                                                                                                                                 
  6. Add twine and dots and greeting of your choice.                                                                                

These can be done with any stickers or string you have on hand. You can use rubber stamp images instead of stickers. You can stamp a greeting instead of hand lettering. You can make tiny stars or snowflakes instead of dots. You are limited only by your (and your kids') imaginations.

Enjoy making and giving these. We hope you have a wonderful holiday!
