collage gift tags

More collage! It's so much fun, I can't help it! This time I made collage gift tags. This is a quick and fun craft if you're just in the mood to make something (like me), or if you waited until the last minute to wrap up a present (which I may or may not be guilty of) and you want it to look a little more original then just shoving it in a giftbag. So keep reading!

Go here and here to see my past posts about collage crafts.

 I have 4 years worth a few too many Teen Vogue magazines. I just can't throw them away! So I was thinking, instead of them just sitting in my closet collecting dust, I should put them to good use, shouldn't I? I flipped through them and tore out pages that were "collage-worthy" and started cutting them up.

I cut cardstock into 3"x2" inch rectangles.

Then start collaging! I put washi tape on first, but if don't have any washi tape (gasp!) then you could just paint a background. Or leave it white. Your choice!

Afterwards I sealed them with mod-podge. Punch a hole in the top, thread in some string, and wrap your gift!

  2. thank you! i'll probably make some more because i like how it looks on the package too!

  3. This is such a fabulous way to dress up your basic kraft paper package! I recently got addicted to washi tape, and love finding new ways to put it to use. Such sweet ideas, and I can't wait to use them this Christmas!

  4. Thank you! Washi tape is pretty amazing, isn't it? :D

  5. these are so cute! i love using brown paper and then dressing it up with colourful string and things, and the tags are such a fab idea.

  6. I use brown paper ALL the time and I like pairing it with bright colors too. Thanks! :)
