Easy Christmas Gift Tags to Make

Are you looking for Christmas activities for children? Then here’s a simple craft project for the kids,to make Christmas Tags for presents.These would work lovely with homemade Christmas gifts, and add a further personal touch!


  • Plain cardboard
  • Ribbon
  • Old wrapping paper or Christmas cards
  • Glue

Method :

Step 1:

Cut out a rectangle of cardboard, and cut off the corners at one end to make your label shape. Punch a hole in the centre using a paper puncher (or you can use a pencil to push through the hole if you don’t have a puncher).

Step 2:

Cut some ribbon the same width as the cardboard and glue it to one side only.

(Remember to keep the other side free to write your message! )

Step 3:

Cut out some colour card and a picture.  I used a piece of wrapping paper but you could also cut up an old Christmas Card and glue the picture to the background card and then glue the card to your gift tag.  You can also add further decorations at this point. Sticker, jewels, buttons, glitter etc

Step 4:

Thread a piece of ribbon or cord/twine through the hole and your gift tag is ready for use!
