Here's how to make an attractive, bling free gentleman's gift tag for the minimalist in your life. Charity here, my male friends aren't too happy with all the frills and sparkle. They get positively green around the gills if they see bits of glitter drift towards the floor.
~ Gentleman's Gift Tags ~
Even with a ban on glitter, a gift tag doesn't have to be plain. For this trio of tags I used primary colors, punches, and layers of paper. This kept the tags simple without being too basic.
For the Thanks I cut the Red Plain Linen Cardstock to 5"x 3.25"
The reverse side of the Green Elephant Glitter Cardstock is cut to 4.75"x 3".
The Scroll sticker is from the Regency Sticker Sheet.
I used a die to cut the word "thanks" from the center.
The Lion Tag begins with the same size plaid paper as a base with corners rounded.
The green is the reverse side of the Dinosaur Cardstock cut to 4.75"x 3".
The corners are punched with Kreaxions Punch #305
The oval Lion sticker is from the Regency Sticker Sheet.
For the Royal Tag the plaid paper is the same size base.
The red is the reverse side of Lips Glittered Cardstock cut to 4.75"x 3".
I cut around the Tag on the Regency Sticker Sheet
and used the Kreaxions crown punch on the lower corner.
To assemble the tags I used ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever.
This glue is super strong so a little bit goes a long way!
After assembling the tag I trimmed the top corners so the layers lined up.
I cut down on the frills by using ric-rac to hang the tag.
The boys need never know it is from my collection of vintage trims.
That will be our little secret!
