I love to add a little something extra special to my gift wrapping when I can. With the holidays upon us, I am thinking ahead to wrapping up our Christmas presents. Making shaker tags is easy and they are so fun!

Supplies needed:

I found a bunch of cute crafting supplies at Target. They had patterned paper and tons of shaped sequins and chunky glitter.


To create the tag, I cut my patterned paper 3 1/4″ x 2 1/8″ using my paper trimmer.


I placed the paper inside the fuse pocket. The ones that I used were fused on two sides with an open top. I added some coordinating sequins and glitter to the pocket.


I fused the top edge of the pocket closed using the FUSE tool.


I added an eyelet to the top using the Crop-A-Dile tool. You can use it both to punch holes and close the eyelet.


I added ribbon or twine to each eyelet. 


Since the buffalo check paper was a little plain, I used a 2-inch scallop punch to cut out a circle from the red glitter paper. I added gold Thickers numbers ’25’. I adhered this circle to the card using an adhesive foam square.


For the two tags that didn’t have the extra embellishment, I used a larger eyelet and the ribbon to add a little more interest to the tag. Plus, they both had shaped glitter inside that coordinated with the paper.



These tags come together so quickly. You could easily make them for all your gifts. You could add a name inside the pocket for the recipient. You could also add these to the front of a blank card to create a holiday card in minutes!
