I have a super quick and easy Christmas (or any holiday) craft for you!
I was wrapping some Christmas presents in my college apartment a few days ago when I realized that I didn’t have any gift tags! Uh oh! I quickly realized that I could easily make some tags out of sticker paper and brush pens!
- Avery sticker paper
- Colored pens or markers
I’ll be using Tombow Dual Brush Pens but Crayola markers will work as well!
There are only three steps to this little craft.
- Write/Draw your desired names
- Cut out the names
- Stick them on your packages
Here’s a video of me demonstrating my brush lettering technique.
To achieve lettering like mine, all you have to do is apply pressure on the down stroke and release the pressure on the up stroke. Sounds easy doesn’t it? The steps are easy, but it takes a little bit of practice! Definitely test out your writing on some printer paper before your start writing on the sticker paper!
For more tips, check out Pieces Calligraphy! I follow her on Instagram, and she is fantastic!
Here’s the name I wrote in the video above.
The sticker paper absorbs the ink a little differently than sketchbook paper, so some of the edges are a little choppy. I like to go back and smooth out a few of the edges.
Now we cut!
I like to cut in a wavy pattern and conform to the edges of the name.
All of the tags I’ve made so far have been for girls, so I’ve dotted every “i” and “j” with a heart. The hearts add even more cuteness to the tags!
Time to peel and stick!
I’ve been placing my tags on the backs of my packages, but they’d also look quite nice on the front!
Here are the fronts of a few of my very pretty packages!
A few more pretty tags!
I absolutely love how these gift tags turned out!
They were so quick to make and look fantastic!
Happy Crafting and Merry Christmas!
