DIY Holiday Gift Tag Printable

When Grace from The Big Reveal ask me to design holiday gift tags for her “Creative Ways to Package Holiday Cookies” post, I kinda jumped for joy (and declared myself insane). That’s totally normal, right? I know, I know, it sounds weird especially since we spent the entire week cranking out the Wildwood Speakeasy New Year’s Eve party last week. Grace had leverage though. She bribed me by showcasing them on Twin Cities Live today. And I can now say I was on TV…well, kinda. Ok, ok, my holiday gift tags were on TV with Laura’s nuts…technically NOT me, but hey, I’ll take it! At least I can say I know a TV star! Besides, I had started designing these a while back but became too busy to finish, but still itching to complete. This was just the nudge shove I needed to put on the final touches (and finally decide on a color scheme). I mean, they’ve only been sitting on my desktop since October. (I might be a bit of a procrastinator.)

MORE AFTER THE JUMP

So I originally designed these puppies in a really fun, crazy color palette. But was that practical to most readers? Would that match your holiday wrapping paper? Hmmm. Bright red, mustard yellow, turquoise and plum. Hmmm. After chatting with Grace we decided black and white and gold would compliment her cookie packaging color scheme a bit better. A decision had been made.

Again, I’ve tried to make it super simple for you to print these bad boys.

1. Download the PDF. Right click on the link and “Save As” if your download doesn’t automatically start. BTDubs, the file itself is 19 MB so it may take a bit longer to download.

2. Copy the PDF to a jump drive or CD.

3. Take them to your favorite or nearby copy and print shop or store. FedEx Kinkos, Office Depot, Staples, etc… They also may have the option for you to upload the file. Check their website.

4. Ask them to print your file on an 8-1/2″ X 11″ sheet of paper (heavier card stock) and fit to page.

5. Pay for said prints and drive home a happy little clam.

6. Grab a ruler and X-ACTO knife and trim.

7. Use a 1/4″ hole punch. You will see I added a small go by for placement.

HELPFUL TIP: You may want to use hole punch reinforcements to ensure your tags don’t rip. I used clear.

8. Tie with bakers twine or jute twine and attach to gift.

Now I have inserted crop marks for trimming but feel free to bend the rules. Think outside of that box. Use a small cookie cutter to make different shapes and sizes. Circles, stars, hexagons, clip the corners from either side to make a more traditional tag. Be creative with these little guys! If you can dream it, do it! Check out how Grace cut hers.

And see this bow? I’ve had a few readers emailing me since I posted the giveaway for Owen & Fred asking where they can buy the gold glitter pom pom bow. Well, I made it of course, and you can too. It’s honestly SO incredibly easy and looks like a million bucks. I swear my mom saves and reuses them every year. Can you blame her? They are pretty flippin fancy! Anyhoo, in my next post, I’ll have step-by-step instructions on how you can wrap like a pro too. Fa-la-la-la-la! Until next time!
