It’s time to wrap the presents! Don’t spend money on gift tags, make your own using wrapping paper and a few craft supplies!
You will need some wrapping paper, plain colored paper, scissors, a hole punch, and a glue stick. If you have access to craft punches, these tags will be even quicker to make.
The first thing you will do is cut out a square of your wrapping paper and use the glue stick to glue it onto the colored paper. This creates the front and back of your tag. Wrapping paper by itself it thin and tends to tear or curl up. Now you can either use a craft punch, or cut out a shape with scissors.
I’ve used a large circle punch, a smaller circle punch, and a corner punch. Some tags I cut by hand, simply follow the design on your wrapping paper. When you have them all cut out, use a standard size hold punch to make a hole at the top of each tag. I used a black pen to write To: and From: on the back of each tag.
I like to make a bunch of these all at once and keep them with my wrapping supplies. I generally wrap my presents whenever they come in the mail, or when I get home from the store. Having a matching tag makes your present look great! To use, simply thread your ribbon through the tag before you tie it around your package.
Don’t forget to use plenty of curling ribbon, it’s cheaper than buying bows and so much fun to curl! Happy Holidays!
