Painted Gift Tags
If your house is anything like mine, you may just have a thousand “masterpieces” around – and you can only display so many!
Repurpose some paintings into cute little handmade gift tags! These are pretty, personalized, and handmade – way better than any store bought gift tag. This will work for this year’s holidays, but are also good year round to add a little punch to a present! They’re a great way to use those old paintings AND share your child’s artistic skills!
All you’ll need is
- Some paintings (or any type of forgotten art project). You’ll want something that is on heavyweight paper or cardstock
- Hole punch
- Pretty string, yarn, embroidery floss to tie up the box
Making them is simple – cut them into squares and rectangles. This part definitely doesn’t need to be perfect, so have your litter helpers cut the shapes. Punch a hole, and then wrap your gift! We like to use LOTS of color coordinated string – fun for wrapping AND for unwrapping!
These are so pretty that you may find you can forgo using wrapping paper! Try them out on a plain white box, or with brown butcher paper.
