DIY Christmas Gift Tags/Ornaments

DIY Holiday Gift Tags with Title

I started this project thinking I was making Christmas gift tags. But some of them turned out so cute I'm using them as ornaments! They are super fast and fun to make. Here's what I used:

Supplies

  • Cardstock ornament shapes. I made my own using my Cricut and used two layers of cardstock.
  • Alcohol Markers (other kinds might work)
  • Clear embossing ink
  • Stamp that is large enough to cover the ornament shapes
  • Gold embossing powder
  • Glossy Accents
  • Gold Jump Rings

Stamped Tags

DIY Christmas Decor

The two tags above were made in similar ways. The little one I colored then embossed. The big one I colored after embossing.

Step 1 

(If you are making one like my little one) Use a marker to color the ornament. 

Step 2

Ink a stamp with embossing ink and stamp, positioning it so it covers the whole bulb. 

Step 3

Sprinkle ink with gold embossing powder. Blow off any extra and heat emboss.

Step 4

(If you are making one like the big one above.) Use a marker to color in the stamped image and the background.Ornament before coloring

Step 5

For a shiny finish, cover with Glossy Accents if desired. Let dry.

Step 6

Using washi tape to mask ornament

Using washi tape or masking tape, cover the finished bulb, leaving the "hook" showing. Cover the hook with embossing ink. Sprinkle with gold embossing powder and heat emboss. Add a jump ring if desired.
