Christmas Gift Tags DIY

gold-and-silver-tags

I always have some cardboard off-cuts lying around from a previous project that are ideal for this purpose! A wide variety of decoration can be used; here I have used washi tape (decorative, adhesive paper tape), making this a very quick project.

One of the advantages of making your own gift tags, is that you can make them any size (or shape) that you like.

For these tags I used a decorative hole punch in the shape of a raindrop, but any shaped hole punch of a suitable size can be used.

These tags were simply decorated by applying a strip of washi tape across the bottom edge. I continued the tape around onto the back of each tag too, so that both sides are decorated.

As you can see, washi tape lends a stylish edge to a very basic craft project, resulting in some smart-looking gift tags!

These tags were quickly made in the middle of a present-wrapping session when I needed them to finish the wrapping (yes, if I was organised I would have realised I needed more tags before I started the wrapping!).

This project needn’t be limited to Christmas either, a change of decoration/design makes them suitable for other gift-giving occasions too (see previous post here).
