Stamped Christmas Gift Tag

Decorate your Christmas packages with handmade Stamped Christmas Gift Tags!

Stamped Christmas Gift Tag

Have you done your gift wrapping yet? I had a lot of fun using different papers and holiday stamps to make adorable gift tags to add a little extra handmade flair to gifts. These Stamped Christmas Gift Tags are a lot of fun to make, and BONUS - they are reusable! They come together quickly, so you could make a whole collection of tags in an afternoon!

Turn a sheet of glitter cardstock over and trace the wood tag with a pencil. Carefully cut just inside the traced line using scissors. Another option is to use the SVG file that comes with the wood tags and cut the shape out using a Cricut or other cutting machine.

Use your favorite adhesive to attach the glitter cardstock to the tag. Press it down well. If you have any paper overhang, trim it away with a craft knife.

Cut a piece of coordinating patterned paper to measure 2 1/2" x 1 3/4". Attach it to the front of the tag a about 1/2" or so from the bottom using adhesive.

Cut a piece of white cardstock measuring 2 1/2" x 1 1/4". Center it on top of the patterned paper using adhesive.

Choose a few stamps from the Jolly Characters Stamp Set and arrange them on an acrylic stamp block

Tap the stamp on a black stamp pad a few times. Before stamping on your project, practice using the stamp a few times on a scrap piece of paper to get a feel for it.

Center the stamp on the white cardstock piece in a straight down motion, using firm and even pressure all over the stamp image. Lift the stamp straight up off the paper. If you use too much pressure, the stamped image may be blurry.

Like any craft supply, stamps are an investment. To make sure your stamps last as long as possible, be sure to clean your stamps and blocks immediately after use using warm water and a mild soap. The longer you leave the ink on the stamp, the harder it will be to remove it. You can use a Stamp Shammy or even a soft toothbrush to scrub off stubborn ink. Let the stamp and block air dry. Do not EVER use alcohol, acetone, bleach, or any oil-based cleaners on your stamps!

Doesn't this look so cute?! I love it and think it will look so fun paired with gifts. If you want to add some extra color, you could use markers to color in the stamped images.

After making the card to this point, I was debating on how to make this card reusable year after year. I cut a circle out of cardstock using a 2" punch. Punch a hole in the top using a hole punch and write the gift recipients' name on it. Thread a ribbon through both the hole in the wood tag and the paper circle.

Tie the gift tag to your holiday gifts. After the gift has been opened, remove the circle with the name written on it, and use the tag again for gifts next year. Doesn't this look SO cute?! I am thrilled with how this project turned out and hope you love it as much as I do!
