DIY: Make your own gift labels

In my blog post Think outside the box I shared some gift wrapping ideas with you. I also promised to show you how I made the gift tags you saw in the pictures. I’m not really a crafts person, but making these gift tags are actually quite simple even for a crafts novice. What I like about making your own tags, is that it adds something personal to the gift and the gift wrapping. I kept the tags white with stamps, but you can also paint them, or sprinkle them with glitters. The possibilities are endless. What I also like about these gift tags, is that the recipient can re-use them as pendants and hang them in their Christmas tree.
