Well, here we are at the last few moments before Christmas and the end of the year! Do you find yourself still scrambling to get everything done? I thought a simple, yet meaningful project would be the best way to end our year together. I have a 5 minute or less project for you – hanger tags for a door or wine bottle!
If you find you need a last minute gift for a neighbor or friend, or you’re headed to one more holiday party…never fear! These tags are simple to create with a couple die cuts and the ever-glorious CutCardStock papers. Let’s take a look at this in more detail.
Start with a strip (or 3!) of your favorite CutCardStock paper. For my project, I’m using the PopTone Wild Cherry Red and the Bonzai Green. This is 4″ by 8.5″ in length.
Next, cut a small circle or oval at the top to become the hanger. Any die cut you have at home will work well, including squares, hearts, circles, etc.
If you are hanging your tag on a wine bottle, fold your paper at the top, right underneath where you have cut out the shape. If you have a scoring board at home, this will give you a nice, clean line – but you don’t need it.
Then, decide what you want to say on your tag…for this project I used a large letter die set and a couple sentiments for the holidays. I have cut these out in Basis 80lb. White and PopTone Licorice Black. Glue these to your tag, wherever you desire.
If you have some holiday shaped die cuts, feel free to add these too for any theme you like. I had my Santa hat cut in Basis Soft Pink and the Basis 80lb. White. For the other tag, I’m using Basis 80lb. White for the Santa mustache.
If you want to make a Santa key tag, I’m also using some metal key embellishments by Tim Holtz. I thought this would make a nice gift for a child who didn’t have a chimney! Punch 2 small holes on your tag and thread twine through them to tie on the tag.
Embellish your designs with stickers and ribbon to complete your look! These tags would be great as New Year decor and wine hangers too.
These tags read “Key For Santa” and “Key To Be Merry.” Isn’t that fun??
I hope this project helps you with those final gifting ideas before the big day. Don’t forget to check out other ideas on our Creating With Cardstock Facebook Group as well. Cheers to the Christmas season and I will see you all in the new year!
