Handmade Christmas Gift Tags

Hi friends,

Christmas in July continues with some handmade gift tags. πŸŽ„ They are super quick and easy to make – you can whip them up for all of your gift giving in just an afternoon! They can also double as ornaments for the tree.

You’ll need some chipboard tags, patterned paper, your favorite Christmas rubber stamps, and some ribbon. I found my tags last year in the after Christmas clearance at Hobby Lobby. They are already stocking the stores with Christmas merchandise so you may be able to find them in your store very soon!

You could also use kraft tags, they just won’t be quite as sturdy – it might help to adhere a couple of the kraft tags together before you start. These kraft tags are a little smaller than the size of the chipboard tags I used, but it’s a great deal for 100 kraft tags along with some twine if you want to use that instead of ribbon. Keep in mind that they are a card stock tag and not a chipboard tag so they are thinner!

I traced the tag onto the back of my patterned paper and cut it out. I used my Tombow Dot adhesive to adhere the paper to the tag. Then I added a coordinating strip of patterned paper along the bottom of the tag.

I stamped some of my favorite simple Christmas images on white card stock and colored them with Copic markers. I cut them out and adhered them to the tags with foam tape. I stamped “to” and “from” on the back of the tags. I punched through the paper at the top, lining it up with the hole in the tag, and tied some matching ribbon to the tags.

If you are looking for a selection of Christmas ribbon I found this great set of 12 different styles of grosgrain ribbon on Amazon for only $6.99 (that’s the price now, of course that could change)!

Grab your favorite Christmas stamps, some fun patterned paper, and spend an afternoon making these cute tags! It would be a fun activity to do with the kids. πŸ™‚

Happy Crafting!
