“Gift Tags and Ornaments,” Friend, Dec. 2004, 42
To make Christmas gift tags and/or ornaments, you will need: scissors, heavy paper, ruler, old Christmas cards or wrapping paper with pictures you can easily cut out, glue, marking pens or crayons, a hole punch, and yarn or string.
Cut the heavy paper into rectangles about 2″ x 3″ (5 x 7.5 cm).
For each tag, cut out a figure or scene from the old Christmas cards or wrapping paper, small enough to fit on one side of the rectangle, and glue it on (see illustration).
Ask an older person to print To: and From: next to the picture, then punch a hole near the left edge of the tag at the corner or middle (see illustration).
Thread a short piece of yarn or string through the hole and knot the ends.
Cut out small figures or scenes from the old Christmas cards or wrapping paper.
Glue as many as will fit on pieces of heavy paper, then cut each one out.
With an older person’s help, punch a hole at the top of each ornament where it will hang the best (see illustration).
Thread a short piece of yarn or string through the hole in each ornament and knot the ends.
Hang the ornaments on your own tree or give them as gifts.
