A Personalized Touch

CONTRIBUTED by Offbeat+Inspired

Finding unique gift wrap that you feel fits your personal style during the holidays can be difficult, especially once things begin to sell out and the selection dwindles down significantly. After all, the presentation is just as important as the gift itself, so why not shoot for something fun and unique? Avoid the last minute gift wrapping frenzy this year by creating your own gift tags that are simple, memorable, and customizable! For those who are crafty, in need of gift wrap materials, or simply have cereal boxes lying around their house, these DIY cereal gift box tags are for you! See below for full instructions; we’re willing to bet that you already have most (if not all) of the materials needed on hand already, so what are you waiting for? Let’s get wrapping!

DIY Instructions:
  1. Flatten your cereal box and cut all the seams so you have a few solid pieces with no creases.
  2. Punch (or cut) your tag shapes.
  3. Once your tag shapes are cut, punch (or cut) your paper into identical shapes.  If you’re using fabric, you’ll have to cut the shapes by hand.  I tried to use my punch with fabric once and it got jammed.  When cutting by hand, you’ll have to trace the shapes of your tags to make sure they match.
  4. Use a paper towel (or sponge applicator) to brush Mod Podge onto the graphic side of one of your cereal box cutouts and press your printed paper or fabric onto the tag.  Make sure the 2 pieces are perfectly aligned!  If you’re using a thin paper or fabric that will show the cereal box graphic, simply use the blank side of the box.  If you don’t want the cereal box graphic showing on the back, sandwich it with another box tag with the plain sides facing out.
  5. Complete the rest of your tags and let them dry.  Once dried, punch a hole in the top of each.
  6. You’re done!!  Store them in a little box with some baker’s twine or start decorating right away!
