Instax Belted Gift Tag

Earlier this month, Instax invited me to teach a bunch of avid crafters Christmas crafts at SM Mall of Asia. It was a bit daunting–standing in the middle of the largest mall in Asia–talking about memories and how to share them through crafts. I taught two different crafts at the workshop that afternoon. Crazy me got inspired by Santa Claus and his belt. Here’s my Santa-inspired take on gift tags, to make your gift-wrapping a bit more personalized!

For this craft, you can make a simple gift tag or, for the more ambitious, a greeting card. Like I said, I was inspired by Santa Claus, so I used red cardstock. Cut a rectangular piece of cardstock (with a fold, if you’re going for a greeting card). Make sure it fits your instax print! As you can see, I’ve been using my packs of rainbow film lately.

Use the slits as placeholders for your instax print.

Next, you’ll need black ribbon. This particular one I used is actually chalkboard ribbon, but you can use pretty much anything black to keep in the belt theme. Mark along the center of the tag or card.

Cut slits across the card. This is where you’ll string the ribbon through.
