DIY Christmas Gift Tags

 DIY Christmas Gift Tags
My family and I are starting a new tradition this year.  For Christmas, we are going to be teaming up with my mother-in-law, and we are going to have a full day of baking Christmas cookies!  There are so many people to thank this time of year.  What better way to thank someone than with homemade cookies?
  • Scrapbook pages
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Cookie Cutters
  • Raffia or string
  • Paper bags (lunch size)
  • Hole punch
First, gather together all of your supplies. 

Trace the outside of the cookie cutter on the back of the scrapbook page.  Then fold the page so that you will get multiple cutouts.

Cut out the trace of the design you decided on.  I was able to get 3 hearts, 3 rectangles, and 3 snowmen out of 1 piece of scrapbook paper.
Leave a message on the blank back of the cutout.  Let that person know how much their time or kindness means to you.
Decide where you would like to put the hole to wrap the raffia or string around.  Punch a hole into the design and then string the raffia through and tie the gift up.  I made just a simple bow to wrap up the bags.
That’s it!  Super easy and you could even do this while waiting for the cookies to come out of the oven!
What is your favorite Christmas tradition with your family?

  1. I love how you use cookie cutters to create the gift tags. Cute!

    1. Thanks, Barb! It was fun and I like how it teaches my boys how important it is to give back. Thanks for commenting and have a blessed week :)

  2. Cute Christmas tags! Last December I never got around to baking sugar cookies with my kids. I think I might involve the grandparents so that my kids can still do those fun things.

    1. Thanks, Susan! We have so many people to thank this year between Awanas teachers and friends from church so we thought it would be fun to make cookies with Grandma to give out as gifts. Hope your children have fun with their grandparents as well!

  3. Very clever and love these little homemade tags. Thanks for sharing with #SmallVictoriesSundayLinkup, hope you join us again tomorrow!

    1. Thanks for hosting #SmallVictoriesSundayLinkup, Tanya and for your kind words! Blessings to you for the week and thanks for commenting!

  4. A whole day of baking cookies sounds heavenly to me :) We do the same here, just the five of us.

    1. Very cool, Mrs. AOK! I am so excited to get into some serious baking this year with my boys! Thanks for commenting and hope you have an amazing week! :)
