Handcrafted Gift Tags

Very often a specially-wrapped gift needs just a tad more added to the presentation.  That’s where fun, holiday tags can come in.

Welcome to Day 19 of my 25 Days of Christmas  series where today, it’s all about a simple way to spruce up your gifts with handcrafted gift tags.

Gift-tags-supplies

The supplies for this project are simple and easy to find at any craft store.

I used mini pine cones, wired holly berry stamens, blank tags, rubber stamp image and ink, butcher’s twine, artificial boxwood, scrapbook word stickers.

You’ll also need a hot glue gun.

Gift-tag-stamping

Select the image to be rubber stamped and apply it to the blank tags.

I love this vintage-styled Santa stamp and I’ve used it many times over the years for various cards and holiday projects.

Gift-tags-pinecones-and-boxwood

Use the wired holly berry stamens to attach the artificial boxwood sprigs to the mini pinecones.

This is already a nice mix of seasonal color.

Tie a strand of butcher’s twine around the arrangement and tie in a bow.

Pick an appropriate scrapbook sticker and apply it to the bottom corner of each of the tags.

Gift-tags-greetings

  Hot glue the boxwood arrangement to the upper corner of the tag.

Gift-tags-stand

Add a piece of plain string to tie the tag to the gift and your handcrafted gift tags will be complete.

Yes, it’s that simple.

Gift-tags-table

I’m sure you have a few special gifts in mind that these handcrafted tags would look great on.

They’re so quick and easy to make I think you could knock out about a dozen tags in less than 30 minutes.
