Paint samples or paint chips come in a variety of colours, and are often free at your local DIY store. They can be used in a variety of ways, but this brand's stripes and huge range of colours lent itself to bauble and Christmas tree gift tags.
Paint chip sample cards in a variety of colours
Bauble and Christmas tree templates
If you are creating your own template, then transfer it from tracing paper on to a piece of card and cut out.
Draw round the template onto your paint chip sample lightly in pencil.
Carefully cut round the template.
Using a hole punch, make a hole in the top of the cut out tag.
Thread a contrasting or matching ribbon through the hole and tie.
