LIFE IS A GARDEN; ENJOY THE STROLL.

TAG, YOU'RE IT!

And, in my eyes, you're a star!

I always enjoy making my own gift tags, and even more so if it doesn't require too much effort.  The one pictured is ideal for repurposing old holiday cards, and is a very child friendly craft.

I found a very nice dimensional star tutorial at House Revivals, and it's super easy to follow.  While you're there, check out more of Amanda Lee's posts; she's a very, very talented lady.  I created a template, traced it onto my chosen card stock, cut it out, then wrote out my sentiment on the back.  I simply used the non-cutting edge of a butter knife to score the folding lines.  Punch a hole in one section, attach your tag to the gift with some ribbon or twine, and......Voila!  You're a crafty super star!

As a variation, create two templates, one smaller than the other, and glue the smaller one on top of the larger one.  Outlining the star with glitter glue would look really nice, too.

Now, get creative!
