MAKE IT: DIY holiday gift tags

DIY Holiday Christmas ribbon gift tags / The Sweet Escape

If you’re like me and keep all your crafty scraps then you probably have a bunch of short pieces of ribbon tucked away that aren’t really long enough to be super useful, until now. This really easy DIY is a great way to use up scrap ribbon or gives you a reason to go buy 1 yard of a bunch of different ribbon. May Arts ribbon has an endless selection of options in any style your pretty little holiday heart desires to make these simple gift tags.

Pick your favourite ribbons and have some fun with colour and texture combos. I decided to go a little more rustic with the craft paper wrap and some natural materials. You can make your own gift tags like I did from some handmade paper and a hole punch or just buy some blank tags. Then comes the sewing part but don’t worry, it’s just straight lines, no sweat.

    These are so lovely, Melissa! I’ve never sewn through paper before, but I definitely want to (especially after this).

    When someone burns vermiculite, it becomes lightweight, odorless and fire-resistant and it can be used for attic and wall insulation. Still, there’s a catch
    to this: regular people can’t install this type of insulation by themselves, and professional service is frequently
    needed. New households that are being built today are pursuing very strict energy efficiency standards.
