Mak­ing your own gift tags is an easy way to add a lit­tle ex­tra bling to your presents.


+ Take an A3 sheet of navy card­board and cut out your tags in either ship­ping-tag style or star shapes. Ap­ply a small spot of PVA or clear glue where you want to add gold foil. Then place the foil flakes on top of the glue and use a small paint brush to gently press them down.

+ Use a holepunch to cre­ate a hole in the tag and thread through gold thread or rib­bon.

+ Use a gold pen to write your greet­ing on the back of the tag. A3 sheet of mid­night blue card, $2.29, from Pa­per Plus. Gold foil flakes, $2, paint brush, $2, PVA glue, $2, holepunch, $2, gold pen, $2, all from Look Sharp. Gold thread, 30c a me­tre, from Ike’s Em­po­rium. Stylo gold scis­sors, $10, from The Ware­house.
