Book Page Gift Tags {5 Days of Book Page Crafts: Day 5}

Today's our last book page craft for the week (tear!). Have y'all enjoyed this little series? I'm thinking it might be fun to do another similar one sometime in the future. What do you think?

If you missed any of the other book page craft posts, catch up here:

If you'd consider yourself creative, today's craft is for you. These book page gift tags leave lots of room for all kinds of embellishing and customizing. And if you're not "creative" (although I'd say I don't believe you...we've all got a creative side just waiting to come out), these tags are beautiful in their simplest form as just book pages cut in the shape of a tag.

Supplies needed:

  • Book pages
  • Gift tag template (free printable! see below...)
  • Exacto knife
  • Pen/pencil
  • Scissors (or you can use the exacto knife again)
  • String/twine
  • Sharpie (optional)
  • Items to embellish (I used some washi tape)

Step 1: Print out gift tag template and make stencil.

I created a gift tag template for y'all to make this easy to create a bunch of identical tags. All you have to do is download and print it from here, then use an exacto knife to cut out the tag shapes to make a stencil. I printed it on a piece of card stock to give the stencil a little bit of structure, but you could use a regular piece of paper too.

Here's what the template will look like when you cut out the centers:

Step 2: Lay the template on top of the book page, trace the tag shapes and cut them out.

You can orient the book pages however you want for this step. The template fits nicely on top of a standard sized book page with the text going horizontally. If you need to make a bunch of tags, I'd stack several book pages together (five is a good number), trace the tag template once, and then cut the stack all at the same time. You can easily cut out 15 tags out by only actually cutting out three! (See how I did that math there? I know, you don't have to tell me how smart I am. ;))

Here are the tags after cutting them out:

Step 3: Add a string on the tapered end and then make 'em pretty!

This is definitely the most fun step! Punch a hole into the tapered end and string a piece of embroidery floss or baker's twine through it (or use a needle and thread for this). That'll make these tags ready to attach to a gift so if you make them ahead of time, all you have to do is tie one onto a bag or the ribbon on a gift box. 

Then add whatever you want to make them pretty! I lined the fat end with a piece of chevron washi tape in a fun green that complimented the yellow embroidery floss.  

In terms of labeling, you can leave them blank for a later time, add the recipient's name, keep them generic ("a gift for you"), or put a simple "to"/"from" to fill in later. I had fun using using this technique to make my handwriting look like calligraphy. Thanks to Emily for that!

And now you've got a set of simple, fun tags to add to gifts in a flash. The simple black and white of the tags makes them super versatile, gender-neutral (unless you choose to make them go one way or the other), and very inexpensive. I'll bet you have plenty of craft supplies on hand to embellish these guys without ever stepping foot in a craft store. Unless you want a good excuse to step into a craft store. Which I, um, might want...I don't know about you :). Anyway. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it sure beats spending $2-$5 on a card at Hallmark!

Hope y'all have enjoyed "5 Days of Book Page Crafts" this week! Did you have a favorite? Have you made any of these? Plan to take on any crafty challenges this weekend? Please share!
