I’ve never found a store-bought gift tag that I’m totally in love with. When I wrap a gift, I want it to look artistic and bespoke — and, to me, glossy and mass-produced gift tags take away from that effect! That’s why I put pen to paper to make these hand-drawn printable gift tags. They feature four fabulous designs: “Festive Frida”, “Flourished Tree”, “Pine Boughs”, and “Merry & Bright”.
How to Use These Hand-Drawn Printable Gift Tags
First, download the free Hand-Drawn Printable Gift Tags PDF by clicking here! Then, select the piece of paper you want to print on. I used Epson Fine Art Velvet paper, but the tags would be great on regular white or kraft cardstock.
Next, cut the gift tags out along the outside guideline. If you can, cut just inside the guideline so hint of black shows along the edge! This will help the tags to look more professional. Once you’ve cut out the tags, use the hole punch size of your choice to punch over the circle in the top center of each tag.
And that’s it! You are now ready to add to/from information and enjoy these unique little pieces of art.
If you want to modify your gift tags, I invite you to do so! Any of them could benefit from a pop of color or a few gold watercolor dots. You can see that I used two different shades of green watercolor on the “Pine Bough” tag below with lovely results!
To make the tags stand out even more, try gluing them to a piece of cardstock in a contrasting color. Then, carefully cut the contrasting cardstock so that it’s parallel to all edges of the gift tag!
No “To/From” Field?
Two of these gift tags — “Festive Frida” and “Flourished Tree” — don’t have a place to write your to/from information on the front. In that case, you’ll write your to/from on the back! If you can, use a fun calligraphy style to add even more of a delightful surprise.
These hand-drawn printable gift tags can really help to make a gift “pop”! That said, an eye-catching gift tag is only a portion of the presentation. Other important components include unique wrapping paper, ribbon, and clean folded edges. For tips on wrapping gifts, you can visit the How to Wrap a Gift with Artistic Flair article!
I sincerely hope that you can use these printable gift tags to make your gifts stand out this holiday season! If you love the way they look on your presents, please share on Instagram (tag @thepostmansknock). It’s always so cool and gratifying to see TPK printables in action! It makes any fuss that it takes to make them 110% worth it. 🙂
Thanks very much for reading, and enjoy these little holiday gems!
