My kids love to do whatever they can to help with the holidays. They love to decorate the tree, make cookies, and any other holiday craft we can find or come up with. I thought it would be fun for them to make some gift tags to put on presents for their teachers and our family.
I love that my kids had fun putting these together and how cute they look on the Christmas gifts! The best part, they don’t have to be perfect and they still look pretty cute.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Red, Black, Brown and White Cardstock
- Googly Eyes
- Red Pom Poms or Red Buttons
- Modge Podge
- Glue Gun
- Hole Punch
- Santa Gift Tag Cut files: Santa’s Face | Santa’s Hat | Santa’s Beard + Hat Pieces
- Reindeer Gift Tag Cut files: Gift Tag (Rectangle) | Reindeer Antlers
If you don’t have a Cricut, I also have a printable file that you can print onto your cardstock and cut out the pieces.
For the Santa Gift Tag:
First glue on the beard onto Santa’s face and then your mustache.
Next, glue on the red hat, then the remaining two white parts of his hat.
Add some googly eyes or use a black marker for the eyes to complete the look of Santa.
For the Reindeer Gift Tag:
Glue your antlers onto the brown gift tag, making sure some of the antlers are coming off the tag like pictured above.
Add your googly eyes with modge podge or hot glue (which ever sticks better onto the paper. I had success with both, but sometimes the modge podge wasn’t sticking).
Hot glue your reindeer nose onto the gift tag.
Hole punch your gift tags at the top, add some string, and you’re gift tags are all done!
