3 Ways to Add “Joy” to Holiday Gift Tags

Stampin Up Holiday Gift Tags Your Presents by Mary Fish Pinterest

‘Tis the season to create holiday gift tags!  I have very simple samples today for those of you that are pressed for time (possibly all of us) and still want a little WOW! on your gifts.

Which tag is your favorite?  Please leave a comment HERE.


  • My stamp images are from the Stampin’ Up! Your Presents stamp set.  So many possibilities and so much fun.  This set is on the Holiday Catalog Retiring Product List and only available while supplies last.

Stampin’ Up! Your Presents Stamp Set: Wood-Mount #139803 or Clear-Mount #139806

  • With solid stamps (like the circles), I put a piercing mat (Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Pierce Mat) below my stamping surface for a little bit of cushion.  This cushioning improves ink coverage for both red rubber and photopolymer (clear) stamps.

  • I cropped the holiday gift tag top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and bottom with the Banner Triple Punch (2″ width).

  • The perfect touch!  The Home for Christmas Enamel Dots add a glossy accent with “stick on” ease.  The enamel dots are on the Holiday Catalog Retiring Product List and only available while supplies last.

  • I added Baker’s Twine (a different color for each) to the top of the holiday gift tags.  I’ll share a 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial tomorrow demonstrating how easy it is to loop the twine (works for ribbon, too) for a clean look.

  10. I am a “red” person, so I was naturally drawn to that one, however they were awesome, love the quick and easy designs. TFS!!!!!

  11. These are all so great, Mary. Thanks for sharing a quick and easy way to make a really big impact on so many types of gifts.

  17. Chris R. from Iowa

    All are so cute but I think the little cherry cobbler present one maybe my choice. I think these would look pretty cool on white notecards for a fun card. I think I just might have to try it with scraps of papers and a different stamp since I don’t have that set. Love the pops of colors! Eagerly awaiting your WOW video!

  18. I really like all of your tags! I love the stamps to the side rather just in the middle. Great colors!

  26. Oh, what fun reading your comments!

  31. My favorite is the red and white stripe package. Mary, all of your projects are very unique and done to perfection. You’re a quite a talented lady. Thanks for sharing.

  32. I’m treasuring all these comments. Thanks for your feedback!

  33. I love the dots, the package is really cute, the trees are adorable. OK I like them all.

  34. It’s funny. The tag with the trees was the first one I made and played around with the most. The other two came easily and appear to be more popular!

  35. What length did you cut your cardstock for these? All very nice Mary

    • Good question, Dorothy. There’s no set rule and they aren’t all exactly the same. The white tag started as approx. 2″ wide (just a smidge under) by 4″ long and is cropped at the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. The back tags started at approx. 2″ x 4 3/4″ and were cropped on both ends (Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on top and Banner Triple Punch on the bottom). You lose about 1/4″ in length from where you start when using both those punches.

  36. These are so simple yet so stunning!! I’m definitely going to make some of these. Thanks for your wonderful blog and great ideas!!

  37. These kind comments really keep me motivated daily. I treasure them!

  38. All three are strikingly pretty. I think I’ll go with the circles.

  39. The middle green card!
