Christmas Tree and Wreath Gift Tags and Cards

Use up your small extra pieces of holiday scrapbook paper or wrapping paper to make these fun gift tags!  Even better recycle your old holiday cards and green from magazines into gift tags! Or make them into beautiful Christmas card.

Materials:

  • 4 to 6 shades of holiday green paper (scrapbook paper)
  • Holiday card stock for back
  • Holiday green and or red card stock for back of tag
  • Tacky glue
  • Paper punch
  • Double side tape
  • Paper cutter or scissors
  • String or ribbon
  • Optional: corner rounder
  • Recycled optional: old Christmas cards for tags and green paper strips from magazines

Directions:

For the wreath:

Gather up your green papers, and tear into strips about 1/8” wide.  Cut a piece of holiday card stock (you want to use card stock not paper since we will be gluing) to a size for a tag, mine is 2 1/2” by 3 1/4”.  Trace a circle (the size of the inside of the wreath) lightly on the card stock.  Run a thin line of Tacky glue on circle line.  Tear the long paper strips about 1/2” long varying the size, and glue int place, filling in the circle.

I try to mix the greens shades up!

When you have your wreath all filled in, make a small string bow and glue in place.

I used a corner rounder, and then inked the edge with green!  Cut a solid piece of card for back, punch small hole and ribbon.  With double sided tape attach to wreath to the tag.  If you want add a piece of white card stock to the back of the tag.

 

The wreath can be add on to a card, making a beautiful one of kind holiday card!  Or add them to your holiday scrap book pages.

 

How Christmas trees from torn paper!

This time leave the paper strip long, I like to start from the bottom and work up.  Tear the first bottom strip to the size you like (mine is about 2”), and the next strip just a little smaller and so on to the top.  I like to lay out my paper strips first and then glue int place.

You want to over lap each strip just a little.  And try to use different shades of green!

Add a small piece to the bottom as the tree truck, and maybe a star on top!!!

You can easily make a unique Holiday card, or add to your scrap book pages with this idea!

Or recycle your old holiday cards into gift tags!  I just cut out the parts of the card that I need, even used the holiday greetings from inside.  Then tear strip of green from a magazine!

From a old card to a gift tag!

Hope you are inspired to make these gift tags this holiday season!
