Christmas Countdown: Tag, You're It!

I love making gift tags. They’re super easy, require very little supplies, and make any gift look happier. Here are a few holiday tags I whipped up:

Step 1: Punch scallop circle from green cardstock and punch two small holes in circle with a hole punch.

Step 2: Thread button on red twine, put ends of twine through punched holes, and knot twine to secure button to tag.

Step 3: Punch small scallop circle from white cardstock and adhere to the center of green scallop circle. (This is where you’ll write your “To” and “From” information.) Add rhinestone “berries” to wreath to complete look.

Remember that ornament card I showed you last week? Well, here’s an idea for using the leftover shape:

This is a tag my manager (and CK’s editor-in-chief) Brian Tippetts made for our editorial team. He die-cut a star shape, which he used as his template. He positioned the star on the white circle, punched two holes at each point, set the star shape aside, and connected the dots with red yarn. Pretty fun, don’t ya think?

My friend P. Kelly and I (more her than I) recently started a new card-swap group with some of our co-workers. For our debut meeting, we each made and exchanged handmade tags. Take a look at the great tags they created. So creative!

Tag, you’re it. Do you have any creative ways to make your mark on packages? Whether it’s luggage-tag gift tags, fabric tags, photo tags, or something else entirely, I’d love to hear (read) what it is you do. Won’t you take a minute to share?
