Make Your Own Holiday Gift Tags!

Make your own holiday gift tags! This process is pretty quick and easy, but if you need something even easier, check out my printable gift tags. 

During present wrapping sessions, it never fails that I run out of gift tags. Luckily, they’re pretty easy to make. And the tags can be used in many ways! I use this same method to make tags for the stamped jewelry that I make for my vintage booth.

Decorate the Holiday Gift Tags

  1. Use a stamp to stamp “To and From”. My “To and From” stamp came in a holiday stamp kit, but alphabet stamps would work as well. Or you could even write it out.
  2. Place the clear stamp onto a stamp block.stamp on clear stamp block
  3. Apply ink to the stamp.ink on stamp
  4. Press the stamp to the paper.press stamp on tag
  5. Repeat these steps for each tag.
  6. When the ink it dry, you can start embellishing the tags. I start by applying a piece of washi tape that is too large for the space. Be sure to leave room to write.apply washi tape to tag
  7. Add more washi tape as desired.
  8. Use scissors the cut along the edge of the tags.cut excess washi tape away
  9. Add ties to the tags if desired. Cut a 6″ piece of baker’s twine and tie it to the gift tags.tie bakers twine through hole to make a loop
