Music Note Gift Tags

Today I would love to share an easy and fun project perfect for this Holiday Season! Personal touches to any gift add charm and sentiment. Try your hand at Homemade Gift Tags to finish off those gifts before you put them under your tree or give them to your closest friends! They also make a wonderful gift given as a gift set to Piano Teachers, Music Instructors or anyone who enjoys the joy of Music!

Gather the following materials:

Scrapbook paper
Paper Cutter
Glue Stick
Distress Ink
A Holiday Stamp
School Glue
Hole Punch

Used Sheet Music! I buy my Sheet music at my local Thrift Store. Each one of these books were $1 or less!

Based on the size of your stamp, you will want to cut your sheet music to be slightly larger.

Use your Distress Ink on all the edges to add detail.

Now we need to cut our background paper. Use Scrapbook paper and cut it to be slightly larger and longer then your sheet music. By making it longer we can turn it into a Tag shape.

Cut off the top corners to achieve a tag like shape!

Time to Distress once again!

Use a glue stick to adhere your sheet music onto your scrapbook paper. Be sure to notice the music and make sure it’s arranged the correct way!

Now we can add our stamp detail!

Once the paint has dried we can then add our glitter!

Paint a thin layer of glue onto your stamp.

Stamp it on top of your painted stamp. It doesn’t have to be perfect! I think a layered whimsical look is best!

Sprinkle on your glitter!

Remove the excess glitter and watch it sparkle!

Punch a hole and add a ribbon to hang them on your gift boxes! Write the “To: and From:”
on the reverse side!

These are the perfect personal touch that are sure to be admired!

    These are adorable. They would make cute ornaments too. I will definitely try to make these tags next year. My brother and son are very much into music. They will be a perfect touch for their presents

    So cute. I have tons of old music. I think I might have to get on these this week and save them for next Christmas so I can be pleasantly surprised when I bring them out all made next year.

    Love the tags! Thank you for showing us how. I always appreciate it. Your sight is so fun. I'm glad I found it a couple weeks ago!

    Those are lovely tags! I am a musical momma myself so I just feel like I should tell you, I own a couple of the music books you found and cut up. Just FYI they are worth a lot and hard to find sometimes. (Depending on how old they are) You should try selling them on ebay next time, and just photocopying the paper!
