I often spend so much of my time thinking about the perfect gift that the gift wrapping tends to fall short. I grab whatever leftover wrapping paper or gift bags I have and find some scrap paper to write the “to” and the “from” on. But to give myself a little bit of credit, I do cut out that scrap piece of paper into a little Christmas themed shape of some sort, like a tree or something:). Does this sound familiar to anybody else? If so, than you’ll appreciate a little help in getting more prepared to beautifully wrap those thoughtful gifts!
If you’ve been following us for a while now, you already know that we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE nature and specifically using materials from nature to create things with. We've recently opened a shop on Society6.com where we can transform some of the favourite photos we've taken into useful and beautiful home decor items, electronics accessories and clothing! Here are a few of the items you'll find in our holiday collection this year! Just click on the pictures to see the entire collection.
Using these nature photos as inspiration, we created these free printable gift tags. Consider them our GIFT TO YOU!
Download your free printable gift tags here.
Materials Needed to make these pretty Christmas gift tags:
- white cardstock paper, 8 1/2" x 11" or photo paper
- hole punch
- baker's twine* or fun holiday ribbon*
- craft eyelets* (optional)
1. Download and print the .jpeg file on a colour printer. Be sure to set it to print as an 8"x10" photo. While it looks nice on regular card stock paper, the colours look really rich when printed on photo-quality paper.
2. Cut out the tags and make a hole at the top using a hole punch. For a more polished finish, I added little eyelets to each tag. Then just add some pretty holiday ribbon* or baker’s twine* like we did to attach to your wrapped gifts!
