Soda Can Gift Tags Tutorial

February is usually considered to be the month of love, but based on the ample wedding materials I have been receiving in the mail, it seems more couples get married between April and June. Along with the union, of course, comes subsequent anniversary celebrations. If yours is coming up, this DIY gift tag tutorial is for you. 

I love soda can DIY gift tags because they are sturdy and interesting (because of the punched holes), plus they boast a gorgeous brushed silver sheen. They also happen to be über easy to make.

To start, pull out a can or two of your favorite soda or sparkling water. I didn’t wash mine out, and they weren’t sticky on the inside.

Use regular craft scissors to cut the top and bottom off of your soda can. You can punch a hole in the can with a thumbtack to create something for the scissors to wedge into initially.

You should end up with something that looks like this:

Trace around a business card or other similarly shaped piece of hardy paper. You should trace on the printed side of the can (the side that won’t show in your final product).
