It’s time again to start thinking of holiday cards and gift tags.  While I generally like to wait until after Thanksgiving to start my holiday preparations, cards and gift tags are another story.  Because I need so many and December brings a crazy rush of parties and prep, I like to start these early.  Using themed shaped buttons is a fun way to add personality to festive holiday gift tags.

Make a Holiday Lights Gift Tag using Themed Buttons by Carla Schauer DesignsI used dark blue cardstock cut to 3×5″ for the base of the tag, and embossed it with snowflakes using a texture plate and my embossing machine.  I added some festive silver sparkle with cording looped and glued to the tag to “string” the light-shaped buttons and tied as the tag hanger.  I removed the button shanks and glued them along the cording as the main tag accents and wrote my sentiment in silver ink in the bottom corner.

With a little cording, some cardstock and some holiday themed buttons, it’s easy to make a holiday gift tag that goes the extra mile this season.  Start now, before the holiday craziness begins!

*On a side note, see those little lights in the corner of the step-by-step graphic?  They’re part of a Holiday Party Printable Set coming soon!
