Print out the gift tag templates on to white card stock and cut out each gift tag with scissors.

Using your needle pre-punch holes at the end of each line to make it easier when you do your stitching. Hold something behind the tag to make it easier when you punch the holes. You could use a piece of cardboard, styrofoam or an old pillow.

The designs of the printable gift tags vary in the amount of stitching needed, younger children might find the simpler designs easiest, while the tags with more stitching needed are perfect for tweens, teens and adults.

Make a little hole at the top of the printable gift tags with either a hole punch, or just use your needle a few times in the one spot. Tie onto your wrapped presents with string or ribbon.
