Tips for Creating Christmas Gift Tags

I like to think of a gift tag as the final decoration of a gift. Sure, it’s a tag to say who the gift is to and from, but the tag is so much more. Add personality with your gift tags. Add a little touch of glitter or even a keepsake to hold on to. I like to add in ornaments, candy and pretty ribbons with my gift tags for that “extra touch”. The best part… gift tags are so quick and easy to create that you can make a special tag for each gift. Here are some ideas of how to use gift tags to personalize your gifts.

  • Print out tags and add embellishments such as glitter or hand color.
  • Use a variety of materials to attach your gift tags – twine, ribbon and raffia are some favorites.
  • Add a gift tag and add a bow for an extra pretty decor touch to your gifts.
  • Layer gift tags to create a fancy tag look. You can cut out the tags and then layer on top of other cardstock.
  • Make ornaments that double as a gift tag so the special someone can cherish their keepsake for years to come.
  • Personalize gift tags with art you create yourself.
  • Use non-traditional colors for extra fun. You don’t have to stick with traditional Christmas colors, the gift tag can be fun and funky.

Do you like to make your own gift tags too? I’d love to hear your favorite tips.
