Cute Handmade Gift Tags

This is a sponsored post about Handmade Gift Tags #BICMerryMarking using #YellowGold BIC Mark-It™. is written by me on behalf of BIC® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Just when you thought permanent markers could not get any cooler, BIC Mark-It™ has brought them to a new level. This year we created some Gift Tags and found using BIC Mark-It™ was not only fun but allowed us to be totally creative since you can write over permanent markers using the Metallic colors.

While there are a lot of pretty gift tags available at stores, doesn’t it say a lot more to receive a gift with a handmade gift tag? We picked up a pack of plan gift tags at our craft store and then the creativity grew from there. We decided to make them three dimensional using a household item you probably have on hand, buttons.

I bet you did not know how many different holiday themed gift tags you can make using a button. 

We made Snowmen, use different sizes and colors. Make some ornaments hanging from the label for a fun holiday tag.

 A snowflake is like no other snowflake when you add a button into the middle.

A Christmas Wreath comes alive when you add buttons to resemble holiday decorations. When you use the BIC Mark-It™ in #YellowGold you can easily color over the green as an overlay. 

I found this out the hard way as I was first trying it with another color and you could not see the difference. However, with the Metallic BIC Mark-It™ you will never know what color was underneath.
