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
  • Scissors
  • 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.
