For the past couple of years, I have been crafting custom gift tags. They have been an easy DIY using blank gift tags and Washi tape. This year I went a little crazy on the gift tags, creating multiple versions and different color schemes.
It all started with the idea that I want to up the luxe factor of the tags by adding metal eyelets. A couple of trips to the craft store and Amazon purchases later, I had created families of gift tags. They are easy to create. And it’s a way to get gift tags in the color scheme of your wrapping paper and ribbon.

COLLECTION 1 | GOLD GLITTER TAGS
Add 3/16″ gold eyelets to the Black Gift Tags following the instructions with the Crop-A-Dile. Add one or more strips of gold glitter and gold Washi tape to the front of the tag. Have fun playing around with the orientation of the Washi tape. Tie to package with black satin ribbon and gold or rose gold jingle bells!
That’s it, see I told you they are a simple DIY.
COLLECTION 2 | BRONZE ORNATE TAGS
I couldn’t find 2″ square black cardstock anywhere. So I created my own by cutting down 100 lb black cardstock into 2″ x 2″ squares. Create a 1/8″ hole into your tag using the Crop-A-Dile punch. Then add a 1/8″ gold eyelet following the instructions included in the Crop-A-Dile punch to finish the hole. Using a Gold Fine Tip Sharpie Marker and wrote Merry Christmas and Merry and Bright onto the card mimicking the look of hand lettering.
I found a hand lettering image that I liked on Pinterest of the text and tried my best to copy it. It’s fun because every tag is unique. Add a few bronze dots to the tag. Tie to package with black satin ribbon and rose gold or gold jingle bells!
The entire black + gold family.
