Printable Christmas Gift Tags {With Easy Ways to Embellish Them!}


Happy Wednesday, y'all! I'm so excited to be a part of Nap-Time Creations's "A Crafty Christmas" series this year. If you're coming over from Emily's blog, welcome! I'm so glad you're here. My little contribution to the series is some printable gift tags along with some fun tips on embellishing them using glitter. I love giving simply wrapped packages a little something extra, and gift tags are a great way to do that without breaking the bank!

I've got five tag designs to share with you today. They come in two colorways - traditional red and green, and gold. They've got various seasonal greetings on them like "Merry Christmas" and "Peace, Love, Joy." Download them here (free for a limited time!).

They're designed to print onto blank 3x5 cards, which eliminates the need to cut each one out individually from a large piece of card stock - simplifying the tag-making process! All you need to do after printing is "pretty them up" a bit.


The supplies you'll need are:

  • PDF with tag designs
  • Blank 3x5 cards
  • Printer
  • Scissors
  • Standard hole punch
  • Twine/ribbon/string
  • Sheet of blank address labels
  • Large 1" hole punch/craft punch (similar *affiliate link)
  • Double stick tape
  • Glue Dots (*affiliate link)
  • Glitter
First, print out the designs onto 3x5 cards. Set your printer paper size to "3x5 note card" and they should print out just like these:


Trim the edges of one side of the tag at an angle so that the it looks more tag-like and less 3x5 card-like (for lack of a better term) :). I made one template then used it as a guide for trimming the rest.


This next step is optional, but I think it makes the tags look more finished.

Take a sheet of blank address stickers and use a one inch hole/craft punch to make a bunch of circle stickers. These are going to act as makeshift hole reinforcers. If you have hole reinforcers handy, you can use these instead.



Peel the backing off of one and stick it onto the middle of the end of the tag with the angled edges. Use your standard hole punch to punch a hole through the center of the circle sticker. Tie a piece of twine or ribbon onto the tag so you can attach it to a gift. See the handy step-by-step photos below for a more visual set of instructions...


Purdy, huh?

Now, you could just be done right there and you'd have yourself a good-lookin' set of tags. I left a lot of mine just like that - nice and simple. But why not have a little fun and embellish them with a little glitter? Nothing like a little sparkle for the holidays, right?

For example, to add polka dots, I scattered a few glue dots around the edges of the "Merry & Bright" tag and dabbed on some gold glitter with my finger. By using glue dots, you get nice, round circles, no liquidy-glue mess, and no drying time. Just shake off the excess glitter and you're done.



Love those whimsy, glittery polka dots!

Another way to add some sparkle is to use double stick tape to make a stripe. I placed a strip of tape straight across the bottom edge of a "Ho Ho Ho" tag, dabbed glitter on again with my finger, and shook off the excess. By using double stick tape, you get a nice crisp line - again with no messy glue involved!



Those two glittery tags go together quite nicely :)...


...but they really shine when tied onto a pretty package!


Here are the red and green versions all together - some embellished, some left in their natural states:


And here are the gold versions, which I think look best left un-embellished, but feel free to add to them if you'd like!


Just for good measure, here they are all together!



These would make great additions to your holiday packaging repertoire, or they'd make a great gift for a friend who also loves pretty packaging!
