Are you ready to DIY gift tags? We were and I shared a few we made. Plus a video for how to make a Valentine’s Day gift tag and links to how to gift tag tutorials. I did a little paper crafting recently making pretty gift tags. I really enjoy working with papers, pretty embellishments and dreamy little bits of goodness. Do you?

I enjoy making the gift tags to add to packages. Then pull the handmade or embellished gift tags out as needed to top a gift or give to someone. These simple gift tags I dressed up have me wanting to make more gift tags. I love pretty packaging. Don’t you? Gift tags are like the icing on the cake when it comes to topping gifts.
DIY Gift Tags
I can’t exactly remember where I picked up these paper tags. Maybe they were from a scrap-booking purchase a while back. But, you can cut your own by hand or with a Cricut.
Anyhow, one of the things I am trying to do is use up my crafting embellishments, bits, and bobs, reducing my inventory. I had some white felt and Sammie picked up these little heart embellishments over Valentine’s day clearance when she was at Michael’s with her dad.
How to decorate a blank gift tag
- I cut the felt heart glued it onto the gift tag card.
- Then glittered the edge around the felt.
- Embellished with Valentine’s heart with a cardboard heart with a pink faux stone.
- The added cotton lace, placing it at the bottom of the gift tag-card.
- I found my pretty pink velvet ribbon to add through the top for a package tie.
Then I had this pretty blue with white polka dots gift tag. Both tags were pretty as they were, but I felt I wanted to make something special since I have a baby shower to go to soon. I used various felts, embellishments, lace… I decided to use some leftover red felt for this one. It was a K & Company embellishment that was also picked up on clearance. For the bottom of the gift tag I used an ecru colored cotton lace. I used an ecru string/twine that matched for the tie on.
On the back of the blue on it has a ticket that says my heart belongs to. The pink tag has a stamped received for a name, date and time of arrival for someone’s special day of birth.

I’m going to be cutting my own tags with my Cricut and making more. Maybe I can stamp something like the received on the ones I will be making too. I promise to share when I get a few done. Make something special with a Cricut Machine, you will love their design space! I know you’ll love using your Cricut as much as I love using mine! Now off to get some more paper-crafting done!
