EVERY YEAR AT HOLIDAY TIME, IT SEEMS LIKE I RUN OUT OF THE SAME THING, BUT NOT THIS YEAR! GET MY FREE PRINTABLE GIFT TAGS AND AVOID THE LAST-MINUTE TRIP TO THE STORE THIS CHRISTMAS!
It’s getting down to crunch time and in our house, the countdown is on. I’ve made my list and checked it twice to be sure I’m not forgetting anything – or anyone! Something that I often used to run out of at the last minute was gift tags. I don’t know about you, but it never seemed to fail – down to the last two or three gifts to wrap and I’m out of tags. This typically would occur late at night, closer to the big day than I like to admit. But no more! And why is that, you ask? Because now I MAKE MY OWN! This year, I’ve created some super-fun, super-cute free printable double-sided gift tags for Christmas!
A couple of years ago, I started to really look for ways to stretch my budget at Christmas. There are so, so, so many ways to overspend during the holidays and I always found that things like gift tags, ribbon and wrapping paper never quite managed to find their way into our budget. And in a family the size of ours, that’s a LOT of supplies. One quick and easy way to save a little here and there is to print as much as you can for yourself. I could drive down to the store, buy a package of tags, ribbons, gift boxes and the like. But I could also stay home, cozy and warm (maybe even in my pyjamas … no judgement) and simply hit PRINT and get some amazingly cool, cute, elegant or wild Christmas gift tags. Sounds good to me!
What You’ll Need
These double-sided gift tags are so easy to put together, but look amazing! You don’t need much in the way of supplies:
Colour Printer – I have the this one and I love it
Printer Paper – you can print these tags on regular letter paper, or heavier craft paper if you wish – they do look best printed on a plain white background
Ribbon – in a matching or coordinating colour

And that’s it! It’s likely you already have all of these supplies on hand. To create these tags, you don’t need anything fancier than a pair of scissors! If you have a paper trimmer, you can use it, but it isn’t critical.
How to Make your Double-Sided Gift Tags
These tags are so easy! All you have to do is:
- Download the images from the FREE Member Vault.
- Print the double-sided tags. I used plain white letter paper, but if you want to give the tags a bit more weight, you could print them on heavier paper. I suggest using white paper, in order to get the true colours of the designs.
- Cut out each tag.
- Fold in half and glue together.
- Use a hole punch for the ribbon hole.
- Feed a ribbon through your tag, and attach it to your gift!
That’s all there is to it! Easy-peasy! You can print as many copies as you need, so you’ll be sure not to run out!
If you don’t have anything heavier than letter paper for printing, but you want sturdier tags, you could cut a central piece from light cardboard – cereal boxes, old gift boxes, or something like that. Just trim it to the same size, or even slightly smaller, and glue your tag around it!
These printable double-sided gift tags for Christmas are so cute, so easy and so inexpensive! That’s a triple win in my books!
