I was so excited when FloraCraft® reached out to me last month and asked me to be a part of their Christmas Blitz. As a former part of the MakeIt: Fun® craft team, I was super excited to play with their amazing foam again. As part of the Christmas Blitz, I decided to create a couple of DIY Christmas Gift Tags that were inspired by the FloraCraft® Holiday e-book. You can’t have Christmas without stars, and who can resist a Moose? I know I can’t! Check out how I made these adorable DIY Christmas Gift Tags below.
I love everything about Christmas. As a person who has a lot of fun giving, I love to decorate those gifts when I can. This year I was challenged by the FloraCraft® team to create and decorate with the Make It: Fun® foam for the holidays. After looking at all of the inspiring projects, I decided on an adorable Moose and Star for the tags.
DIY Christmas Gift Tags
This project was so easy, it’s almost scary! I seriously made these tags in just a few moments, and you can, too.
Here is what you will need for these DIY Christmas Gift Tags:
- FloraCraft® Make it: Fun® Foam(24mm x 303mm x 456mm) sheet
- Star Cookie cutter
- Moose Cookie cutter
- Metallic Paint
To get started, place your cookie cutters on top of the foam.
Press the cookie cutters into the foam as far as you can.
Take the folder and place it over the cookie cutters and then carefully hammer the cookie cutters completely through the foam.
Gently push the foam through the cookie cutters, then remove the cookie cutters from the sheet and do it again until you have the desired number of pieces.

I wanted to keep the moose white, but I decided I needed to paint the stars. I grabbed my metallic paint and carefully covered the star. (Always spray foam at least 18 inches away, and do it in a sweeping motion.)
After wrapping the present and adding all of the additional pieces needed, I then attached my foam gift tags.
Doesn’t it look gorgeous?
I can’t decide which one I like best.
Crafting with foam is so fun and so easy! If you are looking for a quick DIY project for Christmas, try these DIY Christmas Gift Tags.

If you have time, I would also love for you to share this post over at the Holidays Celebration link party that is live right now! It’s such a neat idea, I’m sure our readers would love it too! (http://keepingitrreal.blogspot.pt/2015/12/holidays-celebration-link-party-4.html)
So simple and fun! Love that it adds a light depth to the gift too.
