Recycled Wrapping Paper Gift Tags and Friday Favorites Linky Party - Week 389

I hate buying gift tags because it is usually the one important thing I usually run out of at midnight when wrapping Christmas gifts less than 24 house before they are going to be opened.

How's that for a little real world DIYer life?

So DIY homemade gift tags work best for me because I technically never run out. I just make a more! And in the interest of not hunting around the house for cute scrapbook paper  coordinating my Christmas gift tags to my wrapped presents, I craft them from wrapping paper scraps!

How to Make Quick, Easy, and Cute Recycled Wrapping Paper Gift Tags

Homemade gift tag ideas

Pin this step by step tutorial for later!

You will need to make this project


Tag shape paper punch

2 1/4 inch circle paper punch

Wrapping or scrapbook paper

Card stock - I am recycling expired business cards for this project

Glue stick

Bakers twine


Disclosure: I included affiliate links in this post for your convenience.


Step by Step How to Make it

1. Use the tag shaped paper punch to punch two tags from card stock and one tag from the decorative paper.

2. Use the large circle punch to punch an offset circle in one of the card stock tag shapes.

3. Use the glue stick to make a scrapbook paper sandwich tag. Glue the wrapping paper to the solid card stock tag shape and glue the half circle tag shape over the wrapping paper layer.

4. Cut piece of bakers twine with the scissors, tie it to the gift tag, and you're ready to wrap!

I showed you my project, now it's time to share yours!
