5 DIY Gift Tags . . . Fast, Fun and Festive!

These sweet and simple gift tags were a breeze to make! They are all pre-made tags and all just a little too Plain Jane for me.

For this first set I used washi tape, to cute up these kraft colored tags.

I used a couple of different patterns and topped each tag with red and white baker’s twine. I also made sure to leave plenty of room for writing on them. ❤

Next up, tags number two and three are these darling shabby chic lovelies! I like these but still felt they needed a little something.

I added some texture and detail, so I supplied the tags with scraps of fabric and zigzag stitches with black thread.

For tag number four, I used a similar style as the Shabby Chic tags. Only this time, I used two pieces of frayed fabric in a patchwork fashion. 💕

Last, but not least, is gift tag number five. I love the adorable pocket on this cutie – you could slip in a love note or maybe some cash! I’m sure some special person on your gift list would love either one!!!
