Christmas Crafts: Glittery Gift Tags

We hardly ever use glitter as part of our craft activities and after today I remember why .... it goes everywhere, it sticks to everything and clean up is not the easiest but it was totally worth it. Neevah had so much fun working with the Glitter it was such a treat for her and she was extremely proud of her sparkly art work.

You will need
Coloured Card
Christmas Cookie Cutters
White Glue
Plastic Spoon (optional)

To Make
1 .Place a cookie cutter into the glue and then stamp it onto a piece of coloured card
2 .Sprinkle glitter over the glue - Neevah used a spoon with the glitter just for something a bit different
3 .Shake off the excess glitter
4 .Repeat until your child has had enough
5 .Let Dry
6 .Cut up into gift tags anyway you like - I cut irregular shapes some around individual stars/trees and others around groups
7 .Make a small hole in the gift card thread ribbon through the hole and knot tightly

Neevah loves stamping with cookie cutters so much so I ended up with 20 Christmas gift tags they will add a great personal touch to this years Christmas Gifts.

So cool. Love the cookie cutter stamp idea.

We printed off stars on red and green paper a few years ago and let the girls decorate them with stickers. It was lots of fun and less messy than glitter.

That said I foolishly purchased a bulk shaker style bottle of glitter a few months ago and my girls found it recently. Our house has sprinkles of glitter all over it now. I'm torn between hiding the bottle again (in a better spot) or letting them have at it until the glitter runs out.

I vote hiding the glitter bottle .... it really is messy stuff!

I like the idea of decorating christmas shapes with stickers to make gift tags :)

I have done something similar to this before. They look gorgeous, but there is glitter everywhere for weeks. Christmas is glitter-madness in my house. I figure Xmas ornaments on the tree put glitter all over the place anyway, so we may as well craft with glitter.

Cat - they are gorgeous and well worth the glittery mess

I agree that having the glitter around is worth the results. I made similar glitter tags for Christmas and I though they looked great. Added a really nice personal touch. Plus, like one mentioned above, we already have glitter all over the place at my house from ornaments and I have my kids do other crafts too so the results are worth the mess. My biggest thing is my kids and they love it, so that's all that matters!)
