Add a dash of adorable to your Christmas presents by making your own reindeer gift tags.
Reindeer Gift Tags
- blue cardstock
- brown cardstock
- the world's best scissors
- hole punch
- craft glue
- tiny red buttons
- brown and black markers
- candy cane baker's twine
Cut the blue cardstock and the brown cardstock into rectangles. If you make the rectangles 2" x 4", you'll get 18 tags from a 12" x 12" sheet of cardstock. The tags in my photos are actually 2.5" x 4" because I had scraps that size left over from a previous project. Basically, you can make your rectangles whatever size you want your tags to be.
Punch a hole in the top center of each blue tag and set them aside. Trim each brown rectangle into an isosceles triangle by keeping the base the original length and cutting diagonally up on each side toward the top center. Fold the top portion of the triangle forward and glue the bottom portion to a blue tag.
Use the black marker to add two dots for eyes. Then glue a button nose in place.
Use the brown scraps to cut a pair of ears for each reindeer. Glue them in place, tucking the ends just under the reindeer's head.
Draw antlers using the brown marker.
Add some baker's twine and your tags are ready to go! That's Trevor's first tag on the left and my first on the right. Even when we follow exactly the same steps, our personal style still comes out in our crafts. Love that!
