Homemade Holiday Gift Tags


A festive gift tag is like icing on the cake for a beautifully wrapped present. This craft combines frugal and fun to create a memorable addition to any gift!

Shop at Dollar Tree – Here's What You'll Need:

  • Holiday Foam Shapes
  • White Glue
  • White Filler Paper
  • Fine-Tip Marker
  • Decorative Paper Tape
  • Hole Punch
  • Ribbon

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. For each tag you will need two identical foam shapes, one for the front and one for the back. Take one and cut two rectangular holes into the center to create windows (see image #1).
  2. Cut a piece of white paper that will fit inside the area of the windows and glue it to the backside of the second foam shape, ensuring it will line up with the windows on the first foam shape (see image #2).
  3. Place glue around the edges of the foam shape with windows and attach the second foam shape to the back of the first.
  4. Write who the package is TO and FROM on the white paper that peeks through the "windows".
  5. Decorate the foam shape using decorative tape or embellish with other craft items.
  6. Punch a hole at the top of the tag and add ribbon to attach to package.
