Make a Mini Christmas Scroll Ornament- Gift Tag

Hello my friend!

These mini Christmas Scroll Ornaments

are so quick and easy to make.

They can also be used as gift tags.

You just need a couple of things you probably

have around the house.

On the scroll

I have chosen this Bible verse-

Isaiah 9:6 

to announce the birth of Jesus.

Of course you can pick another sentiment for your scroll

and use a font you love, that's fine!

Pin Later for last minute gift!

White copy paper works just fine.

You can use card stock-

I will show both versions.

Cut your paper into individual strips.

The strips are approximately 2 1/4'' wide by 8 1/2'' long 

I went over my paper with a used teabag-

so the paper look aged.

You will need to gather some small diameter

sticks from the yard-

or dowel, toothpicks,

even cinnamon bark sticks!

You need 2 sticks for each scroll, about 3'' long.

You will need regular white glue

to attach scroll to the stick.

The cinnamon sticks sometimes have an overlap

where you can tuck in that edge.

If it does, use one stick like this at the bottom of scroll.

It looks nice if it is hanging open on the tree.

Glue the stick across the top edge-

Roll the scroll down at the top and glue again.

Cut a piece of ribbon or twine about 12''.

Roll the top to the middle and roll the bottom up to the middle

and tie in place.

This same piece of twine will be used

as the ornaments hanger.

Add a little name tag to your scroll.

The scrolls with the 

cinnamon sticks are my favorite because they smell so good.

Here are both versions, cardstock and cinnamon on the left 

and white copy paper and sticks on the right.

Pinch the paper into the shape you like.

Too early for a tree.....but I had a wreath at hand :)

So I tucked in among the other ornaments.

Went out in the yard and hung the ornament in the Lavender.

They would look good on a natural themed Christmas tree.

When the scrolls are all rolled up and tagged- they could be given

to your guests as they leave your Thanksgiving Celebration

To share a thank you and the anticipation of the coming holiday.

Thank you SO much for the visit !

  1. What a great idea! How clever! Thank you for this ��

    You're most welcome to join me in a cuppa at Tea With Jennifer,

    1. Jennifer,
      Thank you so much!
      I love projects that cost just pennies and a little love.

  2. This is a great idea. Thank you for sharing with us. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. These are adorable! The only thing I hate is that I probably won't have time to make them for our Christmas fair on Saturday; I'll be busy baking!

    1. Kathy,
      I'm making some for my sale next week. What are you baking for the sale? Wish I could be there to shop. I hope your sale is a great success!

    2. I made 2 batches of pumpkin bread (with fresh pumpkin from SO's family farm): some with chocolate marble swirls--makes eating pumpkin bread much more fun! Chocolate zuchhini cakes (from my daughter's large zukes). 3 batches of cookies. Chocolate fudge... Was beat the day after the sale. We made around $800; our Ladies' Aid usually gives the church $1000 towards insurance (as well as a bunch of mission efforts) so I hope we sell some more stuff! Money is tight for a lot of people this year!

    3. Everything sounds delicious! I'm glad it went so well.

  4. What a great idea! I love the idea of adding Scripture to our Christmas decorations!

    1. Donna,
      You are so right, I need to keep my focus!
      Have a wonderful week.

  5. Oh,this is so beautiful and such a wonderful presentation! I would love to do these with some calligraphy, too! Thanks so much for the great idea and for sharing with us at the TFT party. :)

    1. Pam, Thank you for your sweet comment!
      I like your idea, the possibilities are endless.
      Wouldn't it be nice to personalize each one with a different special verse? xo Lisa S

  6. Thank you for this beautiful and meaningful ornament idea. Unfortunately, I cannot find a link to click on to allow me to print the page. The "Click to print or save" does not work for me. Am I doing something wrong? I really would like to use this idea!

    1. Hello Mississippi Miss,
      Thank you so much! Right click on photo, prompt will ask- "save as" save to your computer then print from there. That should work for you. So nice to have you visit!

  7. These are beautiful! I am decorating a faith based tree this year and these are perfect to make for it. Thanks so much for sharing your post this week. #HomeMattersparty

    1. Donna, I hope I get to see a picture of your tree.
      It will be amazing!
