Craft Your Own Holiday Gift Tags in 3 Easy Steps

SPONSORED CONTENT -- (StatePoint) Infusing a little DIY into gift-giving adds a nice, personal touch to the holiday season. One simple, but impactful project to try this year is creating your own gift tags. It’s the first thing recipients see, and a great way to add your signature style to the look of your wrapped presents.

To help you get started, art materials supplier Sakura of America is sharing these easy, three-step instructions for creating your own gift tags:

1. Gather your materials.


Here is what you’ll need to make your gift tags:

• Archival, colorful pens, such as Gelly Roll Retractable pens

• Cardstock circles, stars, hearts and other shapes

• A hole punch

• Twine or ribbon

• Scissors

• Your creativity

2. Make your tags.


Draw creative, seasonal designs on your cardstock shapes, like a snowflake or wreath, using Gelly Roll Retractable pens. Offering unlimited possibilities for your gift tags, they’re available in 12 colors and three ink effects to write smoothly on an array of paper colors and types.

Hint: If you have dark, coated, matte or lightly colored paper stock, use a metallic or white Gelly Roll Retractable pen. If you have white or light uncoated paper stock, try a stardust (glitter) or classic Gelly Roll Retractable pen.

Punch a hole near the edge of the cardstock and thread twine or ribbon through.

3. Tag your gift.


Take your threaded gift tags and flip them over. Fill out the opposite side for your lucky recipients. Tie on to your presents for a personal, extra-thoughtful touch. Gift proudly!
