Gift Tag Tutorial

These are so super easy and quick! They just require some paper punches. If you wanted to make even easier ones you would only need the large "gift tag" punch on the far left. I also used my snowflake punch and the small hole punch to make them a little spiffier.

First, just punch out your gift tags using the large punch. Make a lot in various colors.

Next, add your embellishment. In my case, I used the snowflakes.

Then glue together. I did two versions - one using the punched gift tag glued on white paper and then one white gift tag with the punched-out snowflake glued on it.

I plan on making quite a few more before the holidays. I have a "God Jul" (Merry Christmas in Swedish) stamp that would look cute on the gift tags too. I need to try that version yet.

Last, use your small hole punch to make a hole on the right side to fit ribbons and such. This step is totally optional as you could just as easily glue or tape these directly on your gifts.

Can you believe that Christmas is almost here?! How did that happen so fast?!


  1. What brand paper punch is this?

    1. I believe the snowflake punch was by Martha Stewart Crafts, and the actual tag punch was by Recollections. Both from Michaels (be sure to use a coupon though, they can be pricey!).
