Some people like to spend a lot of time making their own Christmas gift tags. They can be as simple or as elaborate as you like – but if you want to save some time, here are a few ideas that might inspire you
Christmas gift tags ideas
Use a Santa Claus stamp or sticker to write your name and address on the front of the present, then add ‘To’ and ‘From’, using gold ink pens or paint pens. You could also use glitter pens instead of writing with any other type of pen!
Make your own Christmas wrapping paper by painting white paper red, green or whatever color you choose! This will make your presents look extra special – but keep in mind that this will take quite some time to do! You could also use the colored cards instead of white paper if you’re short on time!
How to make Christmas gift tags?
First, cut your paper into strips that are about 1/2 inch wide by 8 inches long.
Second, fold each strip in half lengthwise and then fold it again in half so that it is now 1/4 inch wide by 4 inches long. This will create a pocket for your label to slide into. If you want to make your tag look more like an envelope, cut out two pieces of paper that are 3 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches, fold each one in half lengthwise and then fold it again in half so that it is now 3 1/2 inches by 4 inches long. You should have two pieces of folded cardstock that look like envelopes with straight edges when you unfold them. Make sure the fold lines are facing up when you unfold them so that they will be visible when you slide your label into them later on.
What to write on a Christmas gift tag?
A personal message. You can say whatever you want — just make sure it’s heartfelt and genuine!
A funny saying or quote from a favorite holiday movie or song. This is especially great for younger kids who may not be able to read yet but will love seeing their name on the tag.
Your child’s name and age if they’re still too young to read (or if they don’t know how yet). This is especially helpful for older kids who have moved out of the house and don’t visit often enough to remember what grade they’re in at school!
A photo of your child with Santa or another holiday icon that makes them smile every time they see it! It could be as simple as an outline drawing or as elaborate as a full portrait with all the details included — either way, your little one will love knowing you thought about him or her while choosing this particular design!
