Glitter Tags Tutorial

These fun gift tags are a snap to make and add a punch of glam without spending the big bucks. Make several at once and you'll be set for months.

Note: I originally published this tutorial in my portfolio, but over the next little while I'll be working on re-publishing these tutorials here just to simplify things and keep it all together.

You will need:

  1. Assorted card stock
  2. A 2" circle punch and an 1/8" hole punch
  3. Circle sponge brushes
  4. Glitter
  5. School glue
  6. A disposable cup

Not pictured: water and a plastic spoon for mixing
Use the 2" circle punch to cut tags from card stock, old post cards, etc.
Use the 1/8" hole punch to punch a hole at the top of each tag.

(See the rest of the tutorial below)

Mix approximately 1 TBS school glue with 2 tsp water.
Stir until mixture is smooth.

Dip a round sponge in the glue mixture and dab onto a tag to create polka dots with glue.
Sprinkle glitter liberally over glue dots.

Let the tag sit for a few minutes while glue sets.
Tap the edge of the tag to release excess glitter.

Thread bakers twine, ribbon, or long fabric scraps through the tag and attach to a special gift.
Happy glittering!
