Do you have the urge to make easy Christmas Gift Tags to personalize your gifts more than a silly stick-on tag? I do. And these adorable heirloom gift tags are too cute not to make.
I seriously can't wait to get these on presents under the tree, because they are so pretty and they're just so much less tacky (haha--I made a joke!) than those stickers I used to use.
Easy Christmas Gift Tags
Look, I respect the need for last-minute tags for presents. Like, really, if you just don't have the time, you really have to rely on those stickers. Or marker straight on the wrapping paper. Because, yeah, even I have resorted to that.
But, if you have a little time to think ahead and make some classic gift tags with this Christmas gift tag free SVG for Cricut, well, you can really personalize the gifts and have a little fun while doing it.
What You Need to Make Easy Christmas Gift Tags
For either method of making these printable holiday gift tags, you'll need:
- Plain Card Stock
- Glue (dots, runner, foam)
If you're planning to cut your pieces using a Cricut, you will also need
- Light Grip Mat
- Weeding tool
- Patterned Cardstock
How to Make Easy Christmas Gift Tags
To make these printable gift tags, you'll start by downloading and unzipping the files.
If you're making Cricut Christmas gift tags, you'll just load the simple Christmas gift tags design into Cricut Design Space and let the cutting machine do the heavy lifting.
If you're NOT making Cricut gift tags and are rolling this out old school, you just need to print the files and cut out the ornament shape. Once it's cut out, use a hole punch to put a hole in the top.
At this point, no matter which method you used to get your pieces cut out, just attach your ribbon and then pop these free printable gift tags onto your gift wrapped presents!
What Else Can You Do With a Free Printable Christmas Gift Tag?
I have had SO MANY ideas for what else you can do with gift tags and I can't wait to share these ideas, because, frankly, they're genius.
- I really want these to be heirloom pieces for the holidays. So, I'm planning to work on getting them hand lettered and saving them so we can use them year after year.
- You can put these free gift tags on Christmas Cards with a pretty Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays under the tag.
- Since the tags can be printed, you can just stick some on an individually-packed batch of cookies and gift them to your neighbors!
- Bring a wine bottle to a holiday party with one of these pretty tags wrapped around the neck.
- Coupled with a gift card holder, you can make a whole "wrapped gift" out of this tag for gifts.
What's the Best Way to Store Christmas Tags for Next Year?
Ok. So, I'm really excited about making a bunch of Christmas tags this year and then being able to use them year after year. That's just something I thought would be really neat for the kids--one more thing that they can remember one day is "those tags mom always used". So, I've been thinking about how to store them so they'll be ready to use again next year (despite being stuffed in the attic all year). Here are some options I've come up with:
- Put the gift tags flat in a rectangle Tupperware container, with some tissue paper so that they won't bounce around and damage the corners.
- Stick the gift tags in a manilla envelope with a piece of cardboard to give it some rigidness so it won't bend the tags.
- Add them to a file folder system in your office (if you have one).
- Put the gift tags in a zipper baggie and lay them on the bottom of your box where you store your ornaments. This is probably the least safe way to save them, but it is an option.
Now, because these gift tags are so amazingly fun and easy, be sure to pin them to your favorite Christmas crafts board on Pinterest so you can find them fast when you discover you need more!
