How to Make Personalized Christmas Gift Tags:
Step 1: Print
Download the printable Merry Christmas gift tag PDF and print on 8.5 x 11″ white cardstock (I use Neenah 65# Bright White).
Step 2: Cut
Use a scissors, exacto knife, or die-cutting machine to cut along the edges.
Step 3: Gift!
Use a hole puncher to make holes in the “to” tags. Hole punch at the top of the candy cane gingerbread and snowman printable gift tags to insert a piece of string or ribbon for tying.
Use baker’s twine or ribbon to tie free Christmas gift tags to your gifts.
