Christmas - ideas

Make paper pendants

You need:

  • Tonpapier or Tonkarton
  • Working creatively
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • Felt pen or effect pen
  • Punch or punch
  • String, twine or gift ribbon

Step 1: At the beginning, print one of our templates and cut out the desired motif with the scissors.

Step 2: Then transfer the outlines of the motif, here it is an angel, in pencil on construction paper.

Step 3: Now cut the motif again with the pair of scissors.

Step 4: Now use a punch or punch to punch a hole in the gift tag so you can attach it to the gift.

Step 5: Finally, label the pendant with the name of the person to be gifted! You can use glitter pens, noble fineliner or effect pens. Finished!


These noble tree gift tags are perfect for bookworms.

You need:

  • a page from an old book
  • scissors
  • glue
  • Punch or punch
  • String, gift ribbon or string

Step 1: Take the page from the old book to hand. Cut one long side round so that the surface of the page becomes a semicircle.

Step 2: Then lay the semicircle in front of you so that the straight edge is at the top. Fold the right point to the left to create a small triangle.

Step 3: Apply the paper to the back. After that, zigzag the left-side half of the paper several times to make a pointed fir-tree.

Step 4: Now glue the individual layers together with small blots of glue.

Step 5: Now only the suspension is missing - for this punch a small hole in the tree. This works best with a punch or a punch. Finished!
