Remember awhile ago when I discovered balsa wood? Well it was a game changer and I swore I would make so many things with it. And so these wood Christmas gift tags were born. What could make your gift giving more special than a hand painted tag? AND, since it would be pretty sad to throw something so beautiful away, they can use it as an ornament after. This project is perfect to do with the kids too.

The size of the balsa wood is important. It needs to be thin enough that you can punch a hole through it. Here is the size I used, 1/16 x 3 x 36 in.
Cut out shapes. I used a wine glass to trace the circle tags.
