    We Start Our Simple Gift Tags With a Glittered Initial Tag

    Step One

    Draw a 65mm (2 1/2in) diameter circle on white card or employ the template from above. Cut out the circle and punch a hole at the top for attachment.


    Step Two

    Craft an initial using a Cricut, a letter punch, or manual cutting. Position the initial towards the top-left corner of the circular tag. Apply a diagonal stripe of PVA glue across the tag.


    Step Three

    Choose your preferred method: a) Sprinkle glitter over the tag, or b) Dip the tag into a bowl of glitter. Gently shake off excess glitter and let the tag dry.

    Next Simple Gift Tags are Glittered, Layered Luggage Tags

    Step One

    Punch a luggage tag from gold glittered card and another from black card, or follow the template. Place one tag atop the other and punch a hole through both at the same spot.


    Step Two

    Position the black tag inside a star paper punch, ensuring central alignment, then punch out a star (or utilise the medium star template).


    Step Three

    Attach both tags with baker's twine, allowing them to move freely without being glued together.

    More Simple Gift Tags; Little Flag Tags

    Step One

    Trace the little flag tag template onto white card. Cut out the shape and punch a hole at the straight end. Apply PVA glue to the inverted 'V'-end of the tag.


    Step Two

    Dip the inverted end of the tag into a bowl of glitter, removing excess by shaking.


    Step Three

    Employ a black fine liner pen to handwrite the recipient's name or a festive message.

    Our Final Simple Gift Tags are Bunting Tags

    Step One

    Punch 25mm (1in) diameter circles from white paper, the recipient's name letters plus a couple extra for decorations, like tiny stars.


    Step Two

    Use alphabet stamps or a black fine liner to craft the recipient's name on the circles, placing it towards the circle's bottom.


    Step Three

    Cut baker's twine to wrap around your gift two or three times. Position the bunting tags along the twine's center, folding the circles over the twine and gluing them before wrapping around the gift.

    For a unique touch, fasten a small model tree to the gift using baker's twine, and draw a car on the wrapping. Attach your label for a distinct and personal Christmas gift presentation.

    We really hope you enjoy making simple gift tags as much as we do. Use these simple principles and change it around a bit to make your own custom simple gift tags.
