DIY Christmas Gift Tags: Free Printable

Merry Christmas everyone!

I have a second free printable to share with you this month! Instead of my usual planner printable, this one is for DIY Christmas gift tags!

pbtt-diy-christmas-gift-tags

As you can see, the printable includes a variety of both horizontal and vertical tags.ย  I used some of the patterns from my Christmas and winter printables for these tags along with some newer patterns!

You can use this printable two ways!ย  You can print the tags on card stock, cut them out, and tie them to your packages with ribbon and twine. You can also print these on sticker paper, cut them out, and then adhere them directly to your presents! ๐Ÿ™‚

If you want the tags larger or smaller than I’ve designed them, simply print the file at 80%, 125%, etc. until they’re the size you want!

Before I give you the printable file, there are a few things Iโ€™d like to say.ย  I spent a lot of time designing and creating this printable, so please be kind when you use it.

  • Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes printables are for personal use only
  • You may not re-sell, redistribute, or claim this work as your own
  • If you post this on the internet, please give the credit to Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes and link it back to my blog (pinkbowstwinkletoes.com)

Enough of the heavy stuff! Now itโ€™s time for the gift tags!

You can download the printable file here, PBTT Printable Gift Tags.

Merry Christmas and Happy Gifting!

DIY Brush Calligraphy Gift Tags

Hi everyone!

I have a super quick and easy Christmas (or any holiday) craft for you!

I was wrapping some Christmas presents in my college apartment a few days ago when I realized that I didn’t have any gift tags! Uh oh!ย  I quickly realized that I could easily make some tags out of sticker paper and brush pens!

Supplies:

  • Avery sticker paper
  • Colored pens or markers
  • Scissors

I’ll be using Tombow Dual Brush Pens but Crayola markers will work as well!

Green: 277

Red: 847

There are only three steps to this little craft.

  1. Write/Draw your desired names
  2. Cut out the names
  3. Stick them on your packages

Here’s a video of me demonstrating my brush lettering technique.

To achieve lettering like mine, all you have to do is apply pressure on the down stroke and release the pressure on the up stroke.ย  Sounds easy doesn’t it?ย  The steps are easy, but it takes a little bit of practice!ย  Definitely test out your writing on some printer paper before your start writing on the sticker paper!

For more tips, check out Pieces Calligraphy!ย  I follow her on Instagram, and she is fantastic!

Here’s the name I wrote in the video above.

The sticker paper absorbs the ink a little differently than sketchbook paper, so some of the edges are a little choppy.ย  I like to go back and smooth out a few of the edges.

Now we cut!

I like to cut in a wavy pattern and conform to the edges of the name.

All of the tags I’ve made so far have been for girls, so I’ve dotted every “i” and “j” with a heart.ย  The hearts add even more cuteness to the tags!

Time to peel and stick!

I’ve been placing my tags on the backs of my packages, but they’d also look quite nice on the front!

Here are the fronts of a few of my very pretty packages!

I absolutely love how these gift tags turned out!

They were so quick to make and look fantastic!

Happy Crafting and Merry Christmas!
