Tag - Gift Card Holder

Hi, Today I'm sharing some little tag shaped cards. Actually, they are the perfect size to be used as a gift card holder. The ColorWays line coordinates so easily, that when you are using a sketch, they come together in no time at all.  Keep this gem of an idea in your back pocket just in case you need that last minute any occasion gift.

TIP: Use design sketches for inspiration but don't feel restricted to follow them exactly. For the black tag, I reversed the sketch. My placement of embellishments was also different to the sketch because the sentiment took up more space. Some elements of the design, you may choose to completely leave out. Use the sketch as a guide but let your creativity flow to make it your own creation.

2. Cut a piece of cardstock for the tag base and select two coordinating papers for the circle & bunting shape.

3. Next, arrange the sentiment and embellish the tag with puffy stickers, die cut shapes, gems etc.

4. Finally, punch a hole through the center of the top of the tag. Add a bow or tie a piece of ribbon through the hole.
