Hello Snap Click Supply fans! It’s Candice Meyer here to share a few fun Holiday gift tag ideas that are beautiful AND quick to make! Picking a pack to work with was difficult since there are so many gorgeous Holiday digital designs on Snap Click Supply’s store! I fell in love with the elements The Story of Christmas Collection by Lori Whitlock for Echo Park. This mega-pack is brimming over with darling details, charming script phrases, and even a festive font option!
To make this project quick and easy, I relied on foundational shapes from one of my favorite collections: Lori Whitlock’s Label Brush Set B. I selected several fun designs to be the base of each gift tag. The basic process:
- Open up a new transparent document sized 5×7.
- Use your brush tool to create a tag base.
- Drag elements from the Story of Christmas onto the tag.
- Use the print and cut feature of the silhouette machine to cut out your new tag designs.
- Embellish your tags with glitter, gold edging, rhinestones, metallic nailheads, and ribbon!
To make this cute little gift tag, I clipped a wooden background paper [The Story of Christmas] onto one of the square ticket designs [Label Brush Set B]. I added the darling banner at the top so it draped across the shape. The “To” and “From” were alpha characters from element pack 4 [Story of Christmas]. To make these elements pop, I used the “Fill Layer” option to change their coloring from red to white. Be sure to use the guidelines feature to double check your letters are lined up perfectly! After this shape was printed, I edged it with a Krylon gold leafing pen.
I couldn’t resist using the banner element one more time—as a large focal item on a gift package! To make this shape easy for my silhouette to cut out, I added a stroke selection to the outline of the banner. (I just wanted it to be barely visible so I set the width to 3 px.) Once printed and cut, I simply glued this large graphic to the top of my gift! I added a golden metallic nailhead in each of the pom pom circles for extra sparkle. Such an easy gift idea with a definite wow factor!
The long ribbon tag from Brush Set B is perfect for attaching to a gift bag this Holiday season. I kept the background white and simply clipped the “Deck the Halls” saying element to the shape. Two additional holly images completed the look! Again, I added a barely visible stroke line around the tag outline so it would be easy for my silhouette to cut out. Once printed and cut, I embellished the holly berries with red rhinestones!
Shades of blue and aqua happen to be my favorite color palette. This tag will compliment your gift giving activities all winter long! I spelled out the word “JOY” using a combination of letters and graphics. The “J” and “Y” were made using my favorite san serif font and the “O” was a snowflake circle medallion from The Story of Christmas collection. Once again, I used guidelines to ensure that everything lined up perfectly.
I added two additional snowflake elements to the corners for added interest. Since I didn’t want these designs competing with the focal point, I set the opacity to 64%. Once my tag was printed and cut, I edged the outline with aqua glitter. Optional: Pop up the center snowflake circle using double sided foam tape to create dimension! For added sparkle, I outlined the snowflake medallion with crystal glitter.
The striped border on this tag was created by first dragging paper #10 onto the background shape. Then, I used the shape tool to create a large rectangle spanning the entire tag—this simple action created a digital washi tape effect since only the borders of the striped paper are showing on my tag!
Any of the script words [Cheer, Christmas, Merry] in The Story of Christmas collection would be beautiful focal points for your gift tags! I paired the “Cheer” graphic with the present element on this classic tag shape. Positioning a star garland near the top completed my design. Once the tag was printed and cut, I added red glitter to the “Cheer” script, rhinestones to the star garland, and popped up the present using double sided foam tape.
