With Christmas around the corner and winter having completely set in (It is white and foggy all day long), it is one of the most amazing times here in North India. Hot cup of ginger tea, peanuts, varieties of revari & chikki, not to mention gajar ka halwa and all the ‘wintery chaats’ … I love this season!
This time, I am a little late (I am yet to begin) in visiting friends for Christmas socializing. With my hectic routine I couldn’t craft anything for gifting either, so I thought of these cute diy festive tags for the gifts (something handmade is better than nothing!).
I made these shimmery Poinsettia, keeping up with the Christmas theme, to use them as embellishments on the gift tags.
These are left over shimmery ribbon tapes (‘gota’ in Hindi), any other ribbon or paper can be used to make these poinsettia.
I cut out a few hand drawn leaves to go with the flowers and embossed them to add some texture.
I used these cut shapes (left over from my card making stints) and added a little bow here and a little string there to make the tags.
You maycut out various decorative shapes using old wedding cards and other cards… recycled them all! And to make the festive tags all I did was layering… no painting, coloring or stamping. Just added whatever fitted where ever using a stapler and some glue!
Here are the ready tags, stapling them on the gifts.
Here is a closer look: Happy crafting!
Merry Christmas to all!
