Gingerbread and Candy Embellished Gift Tags for Christmas

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

After I the miniature gingerbread house Christmas ornaments from yesterday's blog post, I had a bunch of the little fake candies I'd made left over.  They were too cute to just throw away, or consign to the depths of my childrens' art supplies baskets, probably never to be seen again.  So I came up with a very quick and easy craft to use up my leftover gingerbread-style embellishments:  winter candyland gift tags.

You know I'm a sucker for gingerbread, and anything miniature, AND creative gift wrapping, so you can imagine how happy this little craft made me.

Hint:  VERY HAPPY.  Gingerbread ALL THE THINGS!

I wanted to use a white paint pen to write the names on the tags, but evidently all of mine have dried up, so I improvised with some white puff paint.  My handwriting is not the best even with pens; with the puff paint, it was even sloppier, but at least I got to add glitter.
