Happy December everyone! I have some fun holiday gift tags to share today plus a few tag making tips. I really enjoy making Christmas tags, but let's be real.... most often they do end up in the trash with the wrapping paper, so I try to limit the time invested in making them. That certainly doesn't mean they can't be cute!
These are hinged tags which are very easy to create. I have posted a short reel over on my Instagram account showing how these are made. Click here to watch the reel! I like this style of tag because it's like a mini card.... you can decorate the entire front of the tag, then have plenty of room on the inside for the "to/from" plus a message.
Here are some tag making tips that I have found to be helpful:
- Keep the color palette limited or more neutral so the tags won't clash with the wrapping paper.
- When making many of the same tag, do all the die cutting first, then stamping, then assembling.
- If using an image that needs to be colored, pick one that's quick & easy to color like snowmen.
- To jazz up the tags, use glitter paper for a die cut element.
