Gift Tag Holder

Hi Friends,

Here's a easy project that I would like to share with you. 

You need 1 manila folder, paper scraps, scissors, glue and some

homemade or store bought gift tags.

We can start with the folder.

I cut my folder to 8'' wide.

I cut

Fold up the bottom edge 4 '' to form a pocket.

Unfold pocket.

Fold the sides inward to center.

Refold lower pocket first then, outside flaps fold in.

Now you can see the places you want to cover with

scrapbook paper.

Use glue to secure pockets.

Add your embellishments.

I color photo copied scrabble pieces to make the word 'tags'.

I thought you might enjoy a couple for yourself!

Just print and save. Cut the whole word or cut apart your letters.

The folder stands up well on its' own.

Then I collected some tags and stickers from my stash!

I filled all the pockets.

 Even these little tags were pockets.

I folded in the sides.

Finished size closed is 8'' by 4''

Then I used a bit of ribbon to close the package.

My neighbor has been stuck at home like the rest of us

 and was needing some Christmas tags.

I think this will cheer her up!

I hope this idea sparks some creativity for you.

You are awesome!

  2. Enjoyed this idea. Stopped & made the basic folder - and look forward to getting out my scrapbook papers to cover this. I frequently write myself reminders on index cards. I think this folder may help me corral the cards into one area.

    1. Jan,
      Thank you so much! I'm so glad I inspired you to make one.
      It would be great for index cards.

  4. What a neat idea, and also a great way to organize those gift tags!

    Thanks for sharing with us on the Embracing Home and Family linkup party!

  5. What a gorgeous idea. I made a similar but larger version for my mother in law a few years ago filled with handmade cards so she had a stash for sending all year. I bet your neighbour feels really special receiving this.

    1. Thank you Julie!
      I love your idea to make cards for the year. I think you just inspired me for another gift for my neighbor. She is the sweetest lady! I have been blessed to have her over 30 years. She's like a Grandma to us. We look out for each other:)
