Creating Beautiful Gift Tags
In the lyrics to the classic song “I’ll be home for Christmas” you hear
“Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents ‘neath the tree“
And while the true meaning of Christmas is celebrated first and foremost in our home, nothing beats the warmth of a home decorated for the season. Greenery and gifts ‘neath the tree‘ add a certain warmth that serves to excite children and gets adults caught up in the excitement of the holiday festivities.
Nothing elevates those gifts more than the heart of the gift giver. But added to that, the wrapping and gift tag are right at the top of the list. Even the simplest gift becomes more special with a little love shown in the wrapping and gift tag.
A few years ago I wrapped many of the gifts under our tree with kraft gift wrap and twine. I also wrapped a few gifts with traditional gift wrap for some pops of color. Then I created homemade tags and included crocheted snowflake ornaments for everyone. It was an inexpensive option, and it totally worked the way I wanted it to.
You see, with a large family, I’m pretty no nonsense. I’d take a sharpie and scribble their name across the top of the gift just to save time and energy.
Well, when one of our daughters walked in and said, “It looks like Pinterest in here.” It was her way of saying that everything looked special. I totally took it as a compliment.

You can also upload cut files to Cricut Design Space. I used a FREE cut file from Dreaming Tree to create these little tags that can be used for gift tags.

Oh, and those crochet snowflakes? They really aren’t that difficult. If you already crochet, it’s a great way to pass the time. I made snowflakes while I sat in the car while waiting to pick up my son from sports camp. If you don’t crochet, consider a cutout snowflake with your cutting machine. White snowflakes on Kraft really elevates your packages too!
So grab some craft supplies and start making some Christmas tags that will make your family and friends think that you spent all summer working on embellishing your Christmas gifts.
