Gift Tags Made of Kraft Paper

Gift tags come in all shapes and sizes.

From taking a small square of folded wrapping paper and taping it to the top of a present, to using the pre-made sticker labels with a place to write To/From, there are many quick and easy options.

But many of them aren’t the prettiest of choices.

If you spend a lot of time on your gift wrapping and packaging, you should want your gift tags to be as pretty as the rest of the present. Especially if you are adding paper flowers to your gifts!

Hand Stamping Kraft Paper - Kraft Paper Guide

Here is a quick and easy way to make personalized kraft paper gift tags!

1. The best material for a kraft paper gift tag is thin cardboard. If you use paper, it will be flimsy and not very durable.

A medium thickness cardboard works great. Keep an eye out in food packaging and packaging for products coming through the mail. There are often pieces of this thin cardboard incorporated into industrial packaging. A bonus for recycling and reusing existing materials!

2. The next step is to cut the cardboard into squares, rectangles or your desired gift tag shapes.

3. Next, punch a hole in the tag. And then thread some jute twine or bakers twine through the hole. This is what you will use to attach it to your gift box or gift bag.

4. The final step is to hand stamp your kraft paper gift tag with the appropriate stamp and ink color.
