Looking to create a special gift tag with that-little something extra? Well we might just have the answer with these super-simple makes. They’re a great make for using up all those pesky card offcuts that you just can’t bear to throw away. Why not try recreating the bee gift tags design on a card to create a matching set!?

You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make

 Crackle tag

  1. To create the crackle effect, paint an A4 sheet of thick kraft card with a generous coating of your chosen craft paint, and leave to dry. Then apply a coat of the crackle medium, following the instructions on the back of the bottle. Once dry, apply your second colour of craft paint, then watch the cracks start to appear as the paint dries!
  2. Once the kraft card is completely dry, hand or die cut a selection of hexagons, ensuring that they are all the same size. Cover the entirety of a kraft tag (or you could cover less if you prefer) with the cut shapes to create a honeycomb pattern. When applying each of the shapes, make sure to leave a little border to allow some of the kraft card to peek through from between the hexagons. 
    Top Tip!
    If one of the shapes covers the hole on the tag, simply re-create using a hole punch.
  3. Die cut a bee from gold mirror board and secure to the bottom right-hand corner of the tag using foam pads.
  4. Loop twine through the hole at the top of the tag.

Circular tag 

  1. Die cut two circles from white card using your preferred die from the nesting pack, or use circle tags. Create a hole in the top of each with a hole punch.
  2. Hand or die cut a selection of hexagons from a variety of different card and paperstocks. Secure to the tag with a glue stick to create a honeycomb pattern.
  3. Use the Intricut die to create a bee, and secure to the tag using foam pads.
    Top Tip!
    If one of the shapes covers the hole on the tag, simply re-create using a hole punch.
  4. Loop twine through the hole at the top of the tag.
