Christmas DIY Gift Tags

Hey there! I'm going to be showing you how to make your own paper gift tags for Christmas.

I'll be showing you three different designs. You'll get to learn how to make a embroidery gift tag, a wreath gift tag and you'll also get to learn how to make a cute snowman gift tag. All three of these gift tags are perfect for your holiday gifts.

The snowman and the wreath gift tag are the easiest to make. The embroidery gift tag is a little bit harder to make but it's not too difficult.

You can watch the video below or you can read on.




Wreath Gift Tag


DIY Wreath Gift Tag

You'll need:

Cardstock paper
Markers
Pen
Pencil
Something circular to trace
Ruler
Scissors
Ribbon
Glue or Mod Podge
Hole Puncher

1. Draw and cut out a tag that's any size or shape out of cardstock paper. I made my tag to be 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches and I cut two of the corners at a angle.

2. Trace something circular on the tag to make a circle.

3. Draw leaves or whatever you would like on the line of the circle and make sure you leave a spot to glue on a bow later.

4. After you're done drawing the wreath, you can go over it with a pen.

5. When the ink is dry, you want to erase any pencil markings.

6. Color the leaves in with markers.

7. When you're done drawing and coloring in your wreath, you want to tie a bow out of any color or size of ribbon.

8. Glue on the bow with any type of glue that you want. I painted Mod Podge on the back of the bow and then I placed the bow at the bottom of the wreath.

9. The last thing you want to do is that you want to make a hole in the tag with a hole puncher and then you're all done with your tag. 


Embroidery Gift Tag


DIY Embroidery Gift Tag

You'll need:

Cardstock paper
One or more colors of embroidery thread.
Needle
Pencil
Ruler
Scissors
Glue or Mod Podge
Hole Puncher
If you're going to make the tag into a circle, find something circular to trace.

1. Draw and cut out a tag of any size or shape. I made a circle and I made it about three inches wide.

2. Draw whatever you would on the tag with a pencil. I drew a simple snowflake with a dashed border around it

3. When you're ready to start sewing, you want to separate the thread into three strands and tie the end of the thread into a knot.


4. Take a needle and poke holes where you want the stitches to go. Make sure you're careful that you don't bend the paper to much or you'll see wrinkles in the paper.

5. When you're done poking holes into the paper, you want to thread the needle.

6. After threading the needle, you want to start sewing from the back and you want to pull the thread to the front and make sure you don't pull to hard because you might rip the paper.

7. Then you want to go the next hole and run the thread to the back to create a stitch.

8. After you create that stitch, you want to come through the back again but from a different hole.

9. Then you want to go through the previous hole to create another stitch and you want to repeat the steps 6-9 all the way until you're done.

When you run out of thread, you can tie the remaining thread into a knot and cut off the extra thread. Then put more thread onto the needle and continue to sew until you're done.

Also if you want to sew a border, you can do that too and you want to poke holes first and then you want to sew it the same way as before

10. Once you're done sewing you can tie off the last pieces of thread and cut off the extra thread.


11. Cut out a second tag that's the same size as the first tag you cut out.

12. You want to attach the second tag by taking Mod Podge or glue and a paintbrush and you want to paint over the of the back of the threaded side of paper.

13. Place the blank tag over the back of the threaded side and press them together.

14. When the Mod Podge or glue is dry you can carefully make a hole in the tag with a hole puncher and then you're all done.


Snowman Gift Tag


DIY Snowman Gift Tag

You'll need:

Cardstock paper
Markers
Pen
Pencil
Ruler
Scissors
Ribbon
Glue or Mod Podge
Hole Puncher

1. Draw and cut out a tag of any size or shape. I made my tag a rectangle and I made it to be 2 1/2 x 3 x 1/2 inches.

2. Color the eyes, mouth, and nose with markers. I used black for the eyes and the mouth and orange for the carrot nose. I also drew three lines on the carrot with a pen.

3. Cut a piece of ribbon that's about a inch and a half longer than the bottom of the tag.

4. Take Mod Podge or another type of glue and paint a line at the bottom of the tag and make sure don't add to much Mod Podge or glue because you only want to glue on the bottom half of the ribbon at this moment.

5. Take your ribbon and line up and place the ribbon at the bottom of the tag.

6. Cut another piece of ribbon that's about three inches.


7. Put glue on the end of the piece you just cut.

8. Then you want to lift up the ribbon that's already glued on the paper and you want to tuck the end of the ribbon underneath of the one that's glued down already and wrap it over and glue it down. You many need to put something over so it can dry and stay in place.

9. When the ribbon is dry, you can cut off the extra ribbon from the first piece of ribbon that was glued down and if the second piece of ribbon is two long you can trim it to the length that want.

10. The last thing you can do is that you want to put a hole at the top and then you're all done.


That's how you make these gift tags! 

Which one of these gift tags is your favorite? Mine is the one with the wreath on it.

Happy Holidays!
