If you would like to make your gift presentation a little bit extra special this year, try some DIY adornments and gift tags.
Pictured are some of the things that I have made this Christmas.
First is the paper medallion. It is made using 4 sheets of 15cm square origami paper accordion folded, taped together, glued in the center and finished with a gold adhesive dot.
Next is a pom pom, it adds a nice touch I think. For full instructions on how to make a pompom, go here.
Thirdly is a Spirograph gift tag. Spirograph’s have made a bit of a comeback as a popular toy. I am personally a fan and this is a great project for kids. I used some gel tipped pens in metallic red, gold, silver and white on recycled card-stock. Cut the card 6.5 cm x 8.5cm around your design, crop the corners. Place a silver circle sticker center/top and punch a hole through.
Lastly is the origami bow, I used shiny origami paper from the local Japanese grocery store. For full instructions on how to make an origami bow, go here.
