DIY Gift Tags with a Cricut

How to make Christmas gift tags with a Cricut, including a free template! All you need is some scrapbook paper and your Cricut!

Making reusable gift bags is something I really enjoy and it makes cleaning up at Christmas a lot easier. I haven’t loved my sew on tags though so I’ve been adding paper tags. I’m kind of a mess with my handwriting though because I’m a lefty and tend to smear ink so I loved the idea of making these tags with my Cricut machine. And they came out so cute! Plus they used up some of the holiday scrapbook paper stash.

How to Make Gift Tags with a Cricut Machine

Open up the free Cricut file for these tags. Update the name. Then select both the tag and the name and click “attach.” Right click and hit duplicate for as many tags as you need.

Using DesignSpace to make gift tags.

Setup your scrapbook paper pretty side down on your cutting mat. My mat isn’t super sticky anymore which I found makes it easier to use for paper items.

Put your pen (cap off) into the left section of your machine (the knife is on the right).

Load your mat into the machine, click “make it” on your computer, and press go on your machine.

Once it prints the names, it’ll go through and cut the tags and the hole for the string.

After it finishes, unload your machine and remove your tags. Use a piece of string to connect your tag to the gift!
