DIY Initial Gift Tags: 3 Ways!

One of my favorite things about the holidays is thinking up new and unique ways to wrap our gifts! A key component to a beautiful package is a beautiful tag. I like to reuse and re-purpose materials and ribbon as well. I've also been really into using brown paper the past few years and this year is no exception. Here are 3 easy ways to make unique little tags focused on initials!

#1 : BIG Initials!
Use a stencil or trace giant letters onto paper. Cut out and attach ribbon. I like my mini craft stapler for ribbon attachment.

#2: Vintage Postcards!
Great for guys! Reuse old postcards, keep them whole or cut into strips and stick initials onto the front. Attach ribbon!

#3: Sewn Circles

Cut or punch circles from your favorite paper, stitch with thread (on machine or by hand). Stitch your ribbon loop in as you go around. Stick a letter on and you're done!

The possibilities are endless here, there are all kinds of fun ways to do this, these are just a few! I really enjoy the process of wrapping, and making each package special for our friends and family.

Have you started wrapping yet?
