Picture of Handmade Christmas Tags
I make homemade Christmas tags every year.  It's a great way to personalize my gifts, and it doesn't take a long time or cost a lot to make.  I think a bundle of Christmas tags would also make a great homemade neighbor gift during the holiday season!

Step 1: Christmas tree tag

Christmas tree tag:  I used my Cricut to cut out the tree (you could use a punch instead if you don't have a Cricut.)  I stuck stickers on for the ornaments and glued a button on for the star.  I punched a hole at the top and strung through red ribbon

Step 2: Reindeer tag

Reindeer tag: I bought paper at my local craft store that already had a picture of all of the reindeer across it. I simply cut it out to show just 1 reindeer and backed it with navy paper.  I put an eyelet at the top and strung embroidery floss through.

Step 3: Snowflake tag

Snowflake: I backed snow-themed paper with white cardstock.  I used my Cricut to cut snowflakes out of white cardstock, and glued them to the front.  Then I ran the whole thing through my Xyron to make this a sticker-tag.

Step 4: Poinsettia Tag

Poinsettia:  I decorated a tiny envelope by sticking a tiny poinsettia flower to green Christmas themed paper using a brad.  I glued the green paper to the envelop to cover the front.  I then cut candy-cane paper and used chalk to make the edges red, and backed it with green cardstock so it fit perfectly into the tiny envelope I had decorated.  For this project, I got a bunch of tiny poinsettia flowers in the floral section at the craft store, and simply took out the gold center and replaced it with a brad so it would stay on the paper.

Step 5: Folded card

For this folded card, I used double-sided Christmas themed cardstock and cut to the desired size.  I added ribbon around the front flap, and glued on a star I cut from a punch.

These are beautiful and doesn't it feel good when you see what you've made. I draw and colour mine simply on white paper and then cover them with clear gloss book cover plastic.. I'm not into "scrap-booking" types of art but I always have paper, coloured pencils, texta etc.around because I draw all the time. Lovely work.
