I love Christmas, and wrapping gifts. These tags can be coloured in – or left in classic black and white – to add a personal touch to your gifts.


card of your choice, A4 – we used Snow White Card, 250g, from Gordon Harris
Stanley knife
cutting board- long ruler
hole punch
twine, ribbon
gold pen (optional)


Step 1: Download our high-resolution PDF of the designs here.

Step 2: Print it out, centered onto your A4 card.

Step 3: Place the card on top of your cutting board. Position the ruler on the card using the small line crop marks located on the edge of the card. Hold the card and ruler down firmly while you make your first cut.

Hold the card firmly – don’t move it – and move the ruler to the next crop mark position and cut again. Do this for the vertical cuts first, then cut the horizontal lines.

Step 4: Position the hole punch at one end of your card to create a hole.

Step 5: If you wish, use a gold pen to add a little flourish to your cards, and write on the back of your gift tags with your Christmas message.

Step 6: Wrap and tie your cards onto the gifts.
