Happy Monday friends! We have a fun and colorful project from design team member Amanda Rydell to kick off the week and brighten your day (in case you are feeling the Monday blues!) I’ve always loved crepe paper so these DIY fringe gift tags are right up my alley! Incorporating things like party supplies into your craft and scrapbooking projects is the way to go! It makes me feel less guilty about my tendency to stock up and hoard these other types of supplies! haha! It also adds a great element of texture and dimension to your crafts as well!
Is it just me, or do you also love a good DIY gift tag project?? I love making tags and stashing them away for when I need to wrap up a quick gift. It seems that with every new paper line Maggie comes out with I like to try to make a new version of gift tags. I hope you enjoy today’s project. They just might be my favorite.
These tags were really easy to make. Grab a pre-made tag and a pencil. Trace your tag shape onto your pattern paper. Once you have your tags cut out from the pattern paper the fun begins.
I collected a few of my favorite color crepe papers from the party store and thrift stores. To start, cut 3 strips (the width of your tag) from each color you want to use. I chose to use 2 different colors on each tag. Using double sided adhesive I layered them from the bottom up . Use your scissors to give them a fringe look like a piñata.
To decorate each tag I used a few embellishments from the Bloom paper collection, giving each tag a more personalized look.
While I had my crepe paper out, I cut up some confetti pieces to add into my gift. Who doesn’t love confetti spilling all over their floor when opening a package??
Happy Monday Friends!
