Creative Christmas Gift Tags
Use Game Letter Tiles For Gift Tags
Game letter tiles are perfect for spelling out names for gift tags. Whether you use Scrabble tiles or other game letter tiles, like these, they all work for making fun tags. I simply glued the tiles onto a small strip of ribbon and then attached it to a mini clip. This tag works great for clipping to the top of a gift bag.
Make An Easy Festive Wreath Tag

These pretty wreath labels make an ordinary paper bag look festive and fabulous. I have used the mini boxwood garland before and found it to be super easy to work with. It’s a wired garland so it’s easy to form into shapes.

You can also use fun papers for some creative gift wrapping ideas. Plain manila tags can be made more special with decorative papers and little embellishments like buttons.
If you want to personalize gift tags in a fun way, use photos for making the tags.
Fun Driftwood Sign Tags
TUTORIAL: How To Make Driftwood Sign Gift Labels
Use driftwood as a base to make fun gift tags that can be used later for home decor. Decorate driftwood with burlap, paint, paper or wood burning to make a unique tag. If your piece of driftwood has a shape that looks like a common item, emphasize the look with your decorating. I thought this piece looked like a car so I went with that theme. Since this was a Christmas gift, I added the look of a tree on the top.
Creative Gift Package Toppers

Creative Gift Bags
Make A Felt Gift Bag

A felt gift bag is almost like getting a second gift. Since the bag can be used over again for storage, it serves two purposes.
Decorate A Plain Kraft Bag
Transform an ordinary Kraft gift bag into something special and festive by adding embellishments. For these bags, I just added ribbon and pine sprigs to give them more interest. I glued the ribbon onto the bags but just clipped the pine sprigs with the mini chalkboard clips. Mini chalkboards are fun to use as gift tags. To contrast the neutral look of the bags, I used fun patterned tissue paper to top off the bags.
I couldn’t decide between chalk and paint markers so I did some of each.
