Handmade gift tags to make your gift special

Handmade gift tags are an easy way to decorate your gifts. These small touches are all that is needed to make gift-giving special.

Usually when I finish any paper project, instead of throwing or stashing the scraps I just glue them down to make pretty handmade gift tags.

Make a flower: The first tag is a birthday tag, whose flower petals I made by scribbling with two different colored sharpies on some scrap vellum baggies.

Add dimensional flower stickers: For the debossed look, I used the Fuse Creativity system on some orange cardstock and added some details with pink Pebbles flowers. Finished it off with some American Craft brown twine.

Use a shipping tag: This second tag is kinda clean and simple. But I love that little strawberry button!


Add a monogram: The third tag has a blue nautical feel to it. I find it very tough to put together masculine tags so this was a little challenging. I embroidered the initial using some twine here.

Add a bold felt or ribbon bow: The last tag is over a top girlie and perfect for Mother’s day that is just around the corner! What projects have you been working on lately? I made a couple of layout for NSD I just got around photographing them today. Will share them soon!
