Christmas Gift Tags!


Hi everyone,

A few weeks ago while surfing either my blogs or Pinterest (I can’t remember which) I came across Jackie Topa’s blog post on how to create fun shaped Gift Tags using the Envelope Punch Board. As I am now the proud owner of one of these fun tools I decided to set to work and create some gift tags ready for Christmas … it was the kick I had needed.

You can find the instructions on how to create all the tags on this blog post over on Jackie’s blog here which also includes a video.


Here is a close up of one of my Santa tags, this stamp is an older Penny Black stamp I have had for some time. Jackie does include measurements on her video … but I am also including mine in this post so I have a quick reference when I need it Smile

White Card measures 2 1/2 inches x 4 inches; Colored Card measures 2 3/4 inches x 4 1/4 inches.


I love the fun corners on this one which was created by just turning the card around and punching as you go.


Here is a close up of my gift tag … for this one I used MFT Stamps Banner Builder and MFT Stamps Christmas Ornaments stamp sets.

White Card measures 2 1/4 inches x 3 1/4 inches; Colored Card measures 2 1/2 inches x 3 1/2 inches.


And here are the last set of gift tags I created using the Envelope Punch Board for this one once you punch one corner you flip the card over to punch the opposite corner. As you can see I added hemp cord to one of my gift tags to dress it up. Not sure if I will bother doing the others yet, it will depend on who gets the gift card.


And here is a close up of my gift card … this one reminds me of a Christmas Cracker of bonbon. Again I have used an older Penny Black Stamp to decorate this gift tag.

White Card measures 2 1/4 inches x 3 1/4 inches; Colored Card measures 2 1/2 inches x 3 1/2 inches.

I had lots of fun creating these and I was able to use up lots of scraps which is a bonus!
