>How to:Lilac Gift Tag

>

all done

Playing with the kids coming up with holiday ideas for their Valentine’s Day Parties at school, that of course are not on Valentine’s Day because it lands on Sunday. I decided to make gift tags to add to the teachers gifts. Looking around the house this is what I found. These would be cute for Mother’s day, or Easter too.

Supplies

IMGP0059
  • glue ( I had YES paste (17 years old and still works amazing) and Elmer’s glue kicking around use what ever you like or have)
  • toothpicks to use with white glue
  • corner punches
  • flower punch
  • shipping tags
  • decorative string or yarn (not pictured)
  • construction paper in colors desired 3 to 5 colors (we used3: solid lavender, variegated pink, variegated red)
  1. Punch tons of flowers out of construction paper we placed them in a zip lock bag and shook to mix them
  2. Remove string from tag ( you can replace it later with same string or decorative yarn, string)
  3. add decorative punches to the corners of tag (our tags had been notched already I wish they had not been would have been prettier)
  4. add glue to tag in a paisley or tear drop like shape
  5. add flat flowers to tag
  6. bend petals of flowers up and place a drop of glue on back of center of flower and place in desired location on tag continue to do this till as full as you like (the photos are showing one with them added and one that doesn’t have bent flowers yet)(the very first one only shows one bent flower on the right picture)side by sideraised detail
  7. replace string or add new one
  8. write in space left on tag your desired message
done

    >These definitely look like quick, easy items kids can make for friends! We're going to try a few as bookmarks for classmates here. Maybe we can use a longer slice of cardstock or large, blank recipe cards.We also found some embossing tools, like the paper punches, and we'll letcha know how it looks!
