Holly 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. For Christmas card ideas please click here.

Step one: Choose your paper and cut out a tag shape in the size you want. Punch a hole in the tag for tying. Use pink and kiwi organza ribbon and tie through the hole. Add a smaller tag in a contrasting color and attach it to the larger tag with Terrifically Tacky tape.

Step two: Using paper of your choice, cut a small disc shape and punch out the center with a paper punch to form a wreath. Punch eight holes evenly spaced around the wreath. Starting at the front, bottom center hole of the wreath, weave a kiwi ribbon in and out through the holes, ending with the hole you started with. Starting at the back bottom center hole of the wreath, weave another kiwi ribbon in and out through the holes, ending with the hole you started with. Tie a bow on the front of the wreath with the tails. Weave a pink 3/8-inch ribbon through the kiwi ribbon on the front of the wreath. Poke the tails through the bottom center hole to the back. Weave a Griffin Bead Cord No. 3 in  Dark Pink through the ribbons on the front of the wreath adding a Swarovski 3mm faceted round Padparadscha crystal to the cord as it crosses over the ribbons. Poke the tails through the bottom center hole to the back and tie in a knot.

Step three: Attach three Padparadscha SS7 flatbacks to the antique brass holly leaves charm. Tie to the wreath with bead cord.

Step four: Cut a self adhesive foam mount into four pieces and attach them to the back of the wreath. Peel off the backing from the other side of the mounts and attach the wreath to the gift tag.
