Light-Up DIY Christmas Gift Tag
One of my favorite things about Christmas is decorating the gifts. And, to be honest, I am super envious of people who can make giant bows to top their gifts! That’s why I’d like to share this DIY Christmas tag project that is sure to impress. No need to be envious, just follow these quick instructions and take your gifting game up a notch.

- American Crafts Taffy Cardstock

- Foam Balls/ Gold Beads
- Gold Ribbon

- Bearly Arts Liquid Glue
- Hot Glue Gun
- Cricut File: #M2FAEE “Light Bulb” (Note: Once you are logged into Cricut Design Space, you can click this link for the file.
To create the shaker part, follow the layering instructions above. Create a barrier with foam tape on each layer of the shaker so that your beads will stay in place. Make sure your foam adhesive creates a tight seal on the Christmas light outlines so beads won't escape. Stack them up for at least 3 layers.
Next, fill the shaker with whatever you like! I used an assortment of colored foam balls and gold beads. Once you’re satisfied with your mixture, layer the mylar cut-out on top and glue it in place. The final thin outline piece acts as the top of th4e shaker.
I also chose to personalize the gift tag with my daughters name using holographic vinyl.
Finally, flip your gift tag over and cut a circle into the back. Be careful not to let your shaker contents spill out.
Place your light on the back and use hot glue to adhere it in place. Be generous with the hot glue and make sure it is sealing any gaps.
Attach a ribbon to the back, if you choose to, and you’re done!
