Here’s a quick post to show you how I made the Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Favor Tags. Gift tags are super quick, fun to make and they add so much to the overall presentation. I love how quickly they come together.
For the circles I used my EK Success round punches. I usually like to create a few options to choose from when doing the design. I did that here (photo below) and was able to decide which one would be best.
In planning, wasn’t sure if I should use a simple version or add more by using the scalloped background. Since this was for a boy birthday party I settled on the middle option that has a yellow circle cardstock to help bring out the colors & shape from the inner circle.
For the polka dot background paper, I used the red & yellow polka dot from this Etsy digital pack (DelightfulDigitals). I also used the three stripe sheet for the welcome door sign. Had to change the navy stripe to black to make it work for Mickey Mouse. It was really easy to do in Photoshop Elements. You’d never know if I didn’t tell you!
For the message on the tag, I added the black circle borders and the Thank You message to the inside of the circle. I had already printed the dots on the sheet so I ran it through the printer once more (you could even do this all at once if you wanted to strategically place the circles on the dots). I cut the Mickey silhouettes out via the Cricut.
I like to punch out all the supplies before I get started so that I can do each step all at once. I am ready to assemble!
After the glue dried I added a shiny thin red ribbon. Favor tags make gifts look so pretty, show that you used a hand touch and thought into the gift.
I like how adding the black Mickey silhouette to the top of the circles added some dimension to the piece.
Here’s the Birthday Party post if you’d like to see how everything came together (including these tags on the favors) at the party. As Mickey likes to say…Toddles!!
