All the good intension of blogging with sooooooo many ideas did not come true this year. But here is a small DIY gift tags for the holydays. You need: tape, in different colors and patterns carton circel cutter or a pair of scissors.
how to: Put the tape on the carton in different direction and use different corlors - there is no "right way" (look at the pictures) Then take your cutter and cut your card out. cut a small hole for the ribbon.
(Inspired by Chriz that was "playing" with MT tape and big circle cutters)
Make your own christmas bells out of egg trays. Cut out the small "mountains" of the tray, paint them, and sprinkle with glitter. When they are dry put a ribbon through and it is ready to mount on the three. (If you have a small bell, then put it on the ribbon to finish the bell.)
