Day 11: Post-it Note Gift Tags

Do you remember when I shared my Post-it note printables? Yeah, those were cute and fun to make. Sooo I decided to make more, but this time I’m using them as gift tags. I hope to use these for Christmas, but they could really be used for any gift. Are you ready? Let’s make some cute Post-it note Gift Tags!

STEP 2:

Place the Post-it Notes sticky side on the top (with thepapermama.com don’t on the left side) and place the paper into the printer paper feed.

Note: For my printer I placed the Post-it Note side face down into the paper tray, but this may be different for other printers.

STEP 3:

Place your freshly printed Post-it Notes on a gift!

Enjoy! Here’s an idea: you don’t have to use the printable tags I made, you can make your own or even use some Instagram photos! Just use the Post-it Note layout for the word and image placement.

Day 10: Boo Ghost Candy Wrapper DIY (with free printable)

After yesterday’s candy wrapper post, I really wanted to make a new candy wrapper for this year! I made these Ghost spoon toppers for a different project, and it turns out they’re adorable for decorating lollipops. We live in the city, and it seems we aren’t in a heavy Halloween traffic area. The most trick or treaters we’ve ever had at our home was 20, so decorating our treats is pretty easy (since we don’t need to hand out too many). These would also be adorable for a classroom treat on Halloween. Cute!

Supplies:

Directions:

STEP 3:

You’re done!

Day 9: Mummy Candy Wrapper DIY

Day 9: Mummy Candy Wrapper DIY

Halloween is just over 2 weeks away, so I guess it’s ok to buy some candy now. It’s a little dangerous if we buy candy too soon in our home… because we’ll just eat it all (especially peanut butter cups, yum). I made these mummy candies last year and they were a hit with the trick or treaters. Just a little something extra fun for the kids that come by.

What you need for this project:

  • Some mini candies (I used little Hershey candies, but you can use any rectangle candy)
  • little eyeballs
  • crepe paper
  • hot glue
  • scissors

To check out the full tutorial, head on over to the original post!
