Easy Stenciled Christmas Gift Tags

Today I'm making Christmas gift tags from scrap card stock and a cute stencil! 

These tags used recycled card stock, coffee stained ribbon and a very inexpensive stencil.

If you're ready to wrap, or you want to make place cards for the dinner table, follow along today. 

You probably have almost everything you need at home already! 

Take a look...

Are you ready to wrap? I made these cute place card / gift tags when I found this inexpensive tree stencil online.  I loved that this stencil has so many different skinny trees, a great stencil for many projects!

I had brown paper bag colored scrap card stock laying around so I tried the stencil on some of it and I loved the way the stenciled trees looked. 

All I did was to use a black stamp pad and a soft brush to stencil the tree onto the card stock strips.

I then cut the card stock into a tag shape at the top and punched a hole.

Next, I used clickable alphabet stamps to stamp the word TO onto each tag. The more ink, the darker the tree will be.

I inserted a DIY coffee stained red gingham bow and that was it! Here is how I coffee stain things!
