Christmas wrapping is something I look forward to every year! It’s like the wrapping olympics ha ha and I love it! Picking out the wrapping, ribbon and gift tags is my favorite. I love adding something extra to my gifts, something that makes them unique. I teamed up with Martha Stewart and Plaid crafts to share these DIY Christmas gift tags. They are so simple to make and give your wrapping that personal touch. Because when it comes to gift wrap what’s on the outside counts!
-First measure and cut your balsa wood. Using your x-acto knife and your stencil as a guide cut down the wood to size. Depending on the size of your balsa wood you can always lightly sand the edges to get it exact.
-Stick the stencil onto the balsa wood.
-Use a stencil brush and start to stencil onto your cut out tags. Balsa wood is great to stencil onto and super easy.
-To add some more fun to your wrapping you can stencil onto your gift wrap or bags.
-These sticky stencils are amazing because there is no bleeding and the stencil turns out great every time! They also stick well and are also easy to remove.
-Remove stencil, let the paint dry. Then take a small paint brush and add some details to the stencils with alternate colors. This really adds some fun and dimension to the stencils.
-Punch a small hole in the wood or just stick it straight onto the gift.
Voila! Your DIY Christmas gift tags are done and your presents will be a hit!
