Glittery Bird Gift Tags

These gorgeous Glittery Bird Gift Tags by Think Crafts are a sweet way to add a personal touch to gifts. They would also work beautifully as favour/bomboniere tags or place cards! Think Crafts have used a Red and Aquamarine colour scheme, but these little birds will look cute in any colour, so play around until you get the perfect match for your wedding or event!

What you need:

• White shrink plastic
• Colored pencils
• Big & Glitzy Glitter Glue (I used Aquamarine and Ruby)
• Scissors
• Hole punch
• Ribbon
• Your oven


1. Print bird pattern. Lay it under shrink plastic. Trace with pencil. You should get two birds out of a sheet of plastic.

2. Color birds with colored pencils. Put the kids to work, have them color! Cut out the birds. Use hole punch to punch a hole in the top wing.

3. Bake in the oven on a cookie sheet following the instructions on the shrink plastic package. See how much they shrink?

The color intensifies when they shrink. Pretty!

4. Squeeze a little glitter glue on the bird. Spread with a small brush or with your finger. Let glitter dry. Even prettier!
