Christmas Gift Tags
Here’s a special treat for you!
I created a few gift tags for you as a fun way to dress up your Christmas gift packages. Just print them, cut them and personalize them with your own names.
I hope you enjoy using them!
- Just download the PDF HERE and print out onto white card stock paper. You can use a home color printer or take to an office supply store or speedy print to have it printed for you.
-Practice writing the names on a blank sheet of paper. I like to use dotted paper.
-Use a ruler and pencil to very lightly mark a straight line for the name.
-Use a pencil and very lightly write the name. I used some tips from faux calligraphy to dress up my handwriting.
-To create a Faux Calligraphy, add a second line for the downstroke. I have more detailed instructions for the downstrokes and faux calligraphy in this blog post DIY: 5 Steps to Bible Journaling for Beginners (Step by Step Hand Lettering) & even more details in my Free Quick Start Guide!
-Add the ink. I used a micron pen for the demo tags. Any fine tip pen will work. Once the ink has dried, lightly erase the pencil marks. (if the ink is not dry it will smear when using the eraser)
-For some of the names on my demo tags, I chose a Print Font. I like to add the second line for the downstroke to dress up my print font too.
- The downstroke allows you the opportunity to fill in the space with color, leave it blank, add a pattern like dots, or fill it in with black ink.
- Use scissors to cut out the tags. I added a faint outline to go by when cutting. You can use a hole punch to punch a hole and add ribbon to attach the tag to your package.
Let your creativity flow!
I really hope you enjoy using these tags. These are for your own personal use.
