Materials Needed

Step 1

Cut a rectangle from the cardboard (3 cm x 4.5 cm)

Cut another rectangle of the same dimensions from the transparent paper. You can measure or you can use the cardboard as a template.

… like this.

Try to cut a pattern out of the transparent paper – at about 1 cm of the lower side…

… like this.


Step 2

Apply a layer of glue on the cardboard…

… and place the transparent paper over it, like this. Let it dry.


Step 3

Using your green pen…

… draw two holly leaves on the transparent paper..

Add three red berries with glitter glue.

Let it dry.


 Step 4

Using the card punch make a hole on the upper part.

… like this.

Take the thread and fold it in half…

Put it through the hole, like in the picture…

…then bring the back through the loop, like this.

You can round the corners and your gift tag is ready.
