DIY Button Ornament Card

Make Your Christmas presents too pretty to open by adorning them with unique handmade gift tags. Today I'm going to show you how to make a gorgeous Christmas gift tag with scrapbook paper glue dots, and old buttons. This little project takes only 30 minutes but will last a long time!

Step one:

Fold cardstock in half or four-quarters depending on the size, and cut on the fold.

Step two:

Arrange your buttons on the cardstock in your desired style.

Step Three:

Using glue dots, glue the buttons in place. Glue dots will give your buttons a 3D effect so that they won't look too flat on the paper.


Step Four:

Using a straight edge, (as you can see I don't own rulers, nor can I draw a straight line) draw your "string" from the top of the card to the top of the buttons.

Don't forget to sign "Merry Christmas" at the bottom of the card

Step Five:

Draw a bow at the bottom of the "string" over your buttons. This is the last step!

Adhere your card to your present using glue dots or however you choose. I'm sure whoever you give this too will be just as excited over the card as the gift. You can even sign a personal message on the back if you so wish.

DIY Brown Paper Bag Gift Wrap

This holiday season, it's easy to get discouraged by overpriced presents, and sometimes, after buying those overpriced presents, the department store you bought it from, charges extra for gift wrapping. And I'm sure you'd do it yourself, if you were any good at it.

Well put down the generic wrapping paper, and gift boxes. As I wrap my godchild's Christmas present, I'm going to show you in four easy steps, how to make super cool and attractive wrapping paper out of a brown paper bag. It may seem boring to the untrained eye, but brown paper bags make a cheap alternative to traditional wrapping paper that allows you to add character and pizzazz to your gift wrapping this holiday season. The best part? It's completely recycled and will save you money!

Step One:

Insert present into brown paper bag

Step Two:

Fold edges inwards.

Step Three:

Hold edges together with glue dots. I orginally tried to use tape, but it didn't hold. Glue dots are cleaner and easier to use because your hands won't get sticky and it doesn't leave any residue.

tep Four:

f using ribbon to decorate your present, measure your ribbon so that it fits nice and tight around the present before cutting. Use the glue dots to hold it in place along the length of the gift. When you get to the edge, whether your edge is on the long or the short, fold the edges of your ribbon inward and hold it together with your glue dots. (Since I was using medium sized glue dots, to save glue dots, I ripped them apart to make smaller dots)
