handcrafted Christmas: craft ribbon tags

Winner winner chicken dinner! Well, not really, just a cozy for your starbucks! The winner is....wait for it.....bumbleBEE! thanks for playing everyone and keep reading, because i'll be having a few more giveaways in the spirit of gift-giving!

Back to crafting, I'm currently in the gifting mindset, and this year Christmas will be mostly handmade. I'm trying to keep it simple, so craft paper is going to be my wrapping go-to. I wanted to make some fun tags at least, to pair with colorful ribbon so my packages still have some pop. If you've never sewn ribbon onto paper, I highly recommend it. It's fun, fast and festive!


My trick was to keep the tags {craft cardstock cut to around business card size} lined up one after another and then cut them apart after I was finished with that particular ribbon. Really quick and simple. I think I may end up attaching a lot of these to packages with mini clothespins, so I only punched holes in a couple of sets. These could also make really cool stocking stuffers for the stationary fan. Anyway, try it, you won't regret it!
