Christmas Gift Tags

Merry, Merry Christmas Gift Tags Set of 5 Tags

Handmade really is bestmade! I really love giving gifts. I love adding personal touches, the tags we’re creating together today, do just that! They are pretty quick to throw together, but the best part is, they don’t skimp on details. These tags can be designed in any color or style to coordinate to your gift wrap.

Here's what you need:


Here's what you do:

First, cut out tags on your personal cutting machine using colors/themes of your choice. Or if you already have tags from your stash, you can use those. Note: If you are using tags from your stash, you may want to cut out a square inset for stamping on your images. If not, you can stamp directly onto the tag.

Stamp your images onto tag inset or tag. Use your watercolor pencils and color in your images as desired. Blend with water and paintbrush. Dab with ink dauber. Set aside to let dry.


Cut 2.75" x 2.75" squares of tracing paper. Using your Glue dots, adhere to the tag. Fold over the top edge like shown in the picture.

Take your stamped image and add Glue Dots (I used permanent) in each corner of the image. Adhere to the tracing paper/tag base. I eyeballed and made sure the tag was overlapping the tracing paper. See the close up.


Next, you will add a strip of washi tape for an added detail, this is optional.

Add your sentiment to the bottom of the tag, I chose Merry Christmas, but you can write whatever you’d like. At this time add some glitter “snowflakes” and dimensional sparkle to your snowmen/stamped images. Let dry.

Cut five lengths of lace ribbon. I cut mine roughly six inches each. I threaded them through the punched hole in the top of each tag and folded them in half so the tails sticking up were equal length.

Next, cut 5 lengths of 1 foot with the Peapod (green baker’s twine). Tie a bow around each lace loop and set aside.

Cut five lengths of the turquoise twine (about 11/2') and tie a knot at the end, creating a loop. You’re going to create a hanger for the tag by threading the tied end through the lace and pulling it through the loop until it’s taught. Thank you for letting me share!
