Wrapping presents is one of my favorite parts of the holidays! Each year, I love to make folded gift tags using my Christmas card scraps!
For these cards, I used a Basis Light Brown cardstock for the base. I cut the cardstock into three 6 x 3 pieces, and used those to create 3×3 cards.
Next, I used some scraps I had in several Basis colors (magenta, teal, green, Dark Red, Red, Natural, and Light Lime. )
I cut some scraps into 3″ x 1/4″ or 1/8″ strips. I also punched out polka dots using a 5/8″ and a 1/4″ hole punch.
I like to place polka dots off the edge of the card, and then trim them to create the look of patterned paper.
Finally, I used some scrap 3″ long pieces of ribbon to create stripes on some cards. I had some leftover bling, and I used some of that, too. These are really very easy to make, and when you use scraps, you’re actually helping clear out some craft clutter, too. 🙂
