Gift tags add zazz to any gift given to friends, family, co-workers, and others on special occasions. In fact, a gift tag is just a tiny piece of cardboard that’s cut out from a hand-drawn or stenciled design, which is then folded into a rectangle, oblong, or another shape that is tied to an appropriate ribbon. These gift tags are made from either a lightweight card stock with a gold edge, or if money is no object, plain black paper. The tag itself can be decorated with the same sort of touches as the gift itself. It could be a simple gift tag with a bright colored ribbon tied in a bow, or a tag with a picture of the giver placed on the front.
Nowadays it’s very easy to create your own gift tags. You don’t have to be particularly good at designing them, if you have the proper tools and supplies. These supplies include a preprinted gift tag template, blank gift tags, ribbon in a variety of colors, glue, cutting board, tag glues, cardstock, and an optional tag cutting machine. If you’re handy with these supplies, the entire process can be done in a few short hours. Otherwise, if you want to take it a step further, you could consider enlisting the help of a friend who has a talent for creating beautiful tags. However, most people who want to make their own gifts will prefer to purchase preprinted tags from the Internet.
Once you have all of these supplies, the next step is to select the font style for your tag shapes. The most common styles are Times New Roman, Arial, and Palatino. Then all that’s left is to enter your text boxes, and print!
