Handmade Christmas Tags




Introduction: Handmade Christmas Tags

I make homemade Christmas tags every year.  It's a great way to personalize my gifts, and it doesn't take a long time or cost a lot to make.  I think a bundle of Christmas tags would also make a great homemade neighbor gift during the holiday season!

Step 1: Christmas Tree Tag

Christmas tree tag:  I used my Cricut to cut out the tree (you could use a punch instead if you don't have a Cricut.)  I stuck stickers on for the ornaments and glued a button on for the star.  I punched a hole at the top and strung through red ribbon

Step 2: Reindeer Tag

Reindeer tag: I bought paper at my local craft store that already had a picture of all of the reindeer across it. I simply cut it out to show just 1 reindeer and backed it with navy paper.  I put an eyelet at the top and strung embroidery floss through.

Step 3: Snowflake Tag

Snowflake: I backed snow-themed paper with white cardstock.  I used my Cricut to cut snowflakes out of white cardstock, and glued them to the front.  Then I ran the whole thing through my Xyron to make this a sticker-tag.

Step 4: Poinsettia Tag

Poinsettia:  I decorated a tiny envelope by sticking a tiny poinsettia flower to green Christmas themed paper using a brad.  I glued the green paper to the envelop to cover the front.  I then cut candy-cane paper and used chalk to make the edges red, and backed it with green cardstock so it fit perfectly into the tiny envelope I had decorated.  For this project, I got a bunch of tiny poinsettia flowers in the floral section at the craft store, and simply took out the gold center and replaced it with a brad so it would stay on the paper.

Step 5: Folded Card

For this folded card, I used double-sided Christmas themed cardstock and cut to the desired size.  I added ribbon around the front flap, and glued on a star I cut from a punch.

Step 6: Jingle Bell Card

For this folded card, I just cut double-sided Christmas cardstock to the size I wanted so it folds at the top, and tied 3 jingle bells around the front flap using embroidery floss.  I taped the back side of the front flap in place over the embroidery floss.

Step 7: Vellum Card

For this card, I cut a small rectangle of blue cardstock and topped it with vellum.  I stamped the "Best wishes for a happy holiday" and snowflakes in silver ink on the vellum.  I held it all together with a spiral clip.

For the gold version, I used the same technique as the one above, but without the snowflakes.  The vellum for this was already patterned with gold stripes.

Step 8: Snowman Card

For this card I backed Christmas-themed scrapbook paper with white cardstock.  I also put a white snowman die cut out of white cardstock on the top.  I put the whole thing through my Xyron to make it a sticker card.

Step 9: Snowman Envelope

I used the same technique as the snowman card, but instead of making it a sticker card with my Xyron, I decorated the front of a small envelope.  I then cut a small square of snowflake scrapbook paper to fit inside the envelope

Step 10: Holly and Ivy Card

bought this holly and ivy cutout and brad at my local craft store and put it on some dark green paper.  I backed it with a white fold-over card I had cut from cardstock.

Step 11: Christmas Tree Card

For this Christmas tree card, I cut the tree using my Cricut, and backed it with gold star scrapbook paper.  I backed that with the same green cardstock I used for the tree, and put the whole thing through my Xyron machine to make it a sticker tag.

This is a really easy project to do in bulk.  You can do about 30 in a couple of hours, which makes it a good, low-cost neighbor gift.

    These are beautiful and doesn't it feel good when you see what you've made. I draw and colour mine simply on white paper and then cover them with clear gloss book cover plastic.. I'm not into "scrap-booking" types of art but I always have paper, coloured pencils, texta etc.around because I draw all the time. Lovely work.
