Christmas Tree Gift Tag Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Make your own Christmas tags this year with beautiful papers and crystals, festive charms and colorful beads and fibers for a personal greeting for someone special on your list. Use any paper you wish. For Christmas tag ideas please click here.

Step one: Cut a tag shape to the size you want. Punch a hole in the top of the tag for tying the ribbon. Use red 3/8-inch organza ribbon and tie through the hole. Use a BeJeweler® to attach nine Swarovski ss10 Light Siam hotfix flatbacks along the bottom edge. For help using a BeJeweler please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Set aside.

Step two: Use side cutters to cut off the bail or loop from the antique brass Christmas tree charm. Use Quick Hold craft glue to attach SS7 Light Siam flatbacks to the charm.

Step three: Cut a smaller tag shape in a contrasting paper to use as a backdrop for the charm. Poke five small holes along the bottom edge with a pin or needle. Use red Griffin no. 3 bead cord to tie the medium ruby red glass teardrop beads to the backdrop.To do this sse the needle on the cord to thread a bead and cut to approximately 6 inches. Set the remaining needle and cord aside. Tie a knot at the top of the bead. Use a pin or sewing needle to help poke the strands through one of the small holes and tie in a knot on the back of the backdrop. Trim the ends. Repeat for all the beads. Secure the cord ends to the back with a piece of tape.

Step four: Use Quick Hold craft glue to attach the charm to the backdrop. Use a BeJeweler® to attach an ss16 Light Siam hotfix flatback to the backdrop. Make a bow using the red organza ribbon and attach it to the back of the smaller tag with craft glue.

Step five: Attach a self adhesive foam mount to the back of the backdrop. Peel off the backing from the other side of the mount and attach the small tag to the larger tag.
