As a mom to littles, I’m constantly singing songs. Kids songs, silly made-up songs, and now that it’s almost December, Christmas carols! I love having a bunch of Christmas songs to sing to my boys (because I can only sing The Wheels on the Bus so many times before going slightly mad!), and I’ve had several rolling around in my head for a while now. So I decided to take the words from some of my favorite tunes and design these adorable foiled Christmas carol gift tags for you today!

- Laser printer (or access to a FedEx office or other print shop)
- Therm O Web Deco Foil in red, gold, silver, and silver stars

Gift Tags Directions
Yes, this project requires some specialty equipment. But I’ve been using the Minc with Deco Foil more and more — foiling things is so much fun! If you want, you can just print the tags and use them in black and white—but what’s the fun in that?
The thing about using Deco Foil is that you need a laser printer for it to work and most at-home printers are inkjet. I have a FedEx Office not far from my house, so I just have them laser print my files for me on white card stock. If you have access to a laser printer at home or work, you can print the file yourself.
Once you have your printed file, then comes the fun part. Set your laminator or Minc to warm up. I use its highest setting — I find it sets the foil best that way. Then cut pieces of Deco Foil slightly larger than the area that you want to foil. You get five sheets in a package of Deco Foil and I find it goes a long way!
Then place it in the transfer folder and run it through the Minc or laminator. The heat of the machine sets the foil. When it’s done, peel off the foil and voila! It looks like it came from a professional print shop. The Deco Foil is absolutely beautiful! I love the silver stars version, and how all of the colors catch the light.
To cut the tags, I like using my rotary cutter, cutting mat, and quilting ruler — I get such clean, straight cuts. But you can also use a pair of scissors. Punch a hole and attach a bit of string and you’re ready to attach these adorable Christmas carol gift tags to every present you’re giving this holiday season!
