DIY Reinbird Christmas gift tags

The festive season is well upon us (oh how we’re looking forward to the festive season this year!).

I am one of those people who need to be organised for Christmas or I get a little bit stressed although I’m learning that 3 kids + being super organised and well-prepared and running a business and a household is a bit of an oxymoron.

One of my favourite things to prepare though, is how I will wrap the presents each year.

I always have a theme and I love making as much of it myself as I can.

It’s also a little challenge for me to try and wrap the presents without having to spend money on things that will be thrown in the bin.

I pinned these cute little cards on Pinterest a little while back and couldn’t wait to make my own version for Christmas a few years ago.

The ‘ingredients’

In the interest of not spending anything on the tags, everything I used I found around the house.

Yes I’m one of those people who keep food packaging to use for crafts.

I buy a big industrial-sized roll of brown paper for all my gift wrapping (easy to adjust to any occasion with ribbons and decorations) so I used that to cover the ugly side of the cardboard.

You can use anything you like for the bodies of the reindeer/birds.

To make reinbird Christmas gift tags You will need:

  • scissors
  • craft glue
  • coloured paper or fabric for the bodies
  • cardboard for the cards and paper to cover the ugly side if you’re using recycled card
  • a thin-tipped black marker
  • a hole punch
  • ribbon or twine to attach the card
  • a pencil
Covering the cardboard

Step One

If you’re using recycled card like I did, cover the ugly side in glue and lay them on a sheet of brown paper (or any colour you like).

Press them down firmly then flip it over and smooth out any bumps. Leave it to dry.

Tracing the bodies

Step Two

Draw a rough egg shape onto a piece of card and cut it out to make your stencil.

Trace out the shapes on whatever you’re using for the body (on the side that you will stick to the card) and cut them out.

Step Three

I missed taking a photo of this step – once the card is dry, cut out rectangular shapes. I used an old gift tag as a guide for the shape but you can make them any size you like.

Step Four

Stick the bodies on the cards about 2/3 of the way down.

Filling in the details

Step Five

Use the fine black marker to trace around the outside of the body then add legs, antlers and a beak.

Step Six

Punch a hole in the top of each card, double over a piece of ribbon and thread it through the hole then stick the two ends of the ribbon through the loop and pull it.

Step Seven

Attach your gift tags to a jar of homemade tomato sauce and you’ll be the most favoured person at you Christmas party.

What about you, do you theme your wrapping or does anything go?
