I hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving weekend! Ours was especially fantastic- we had all my family down from Massachusetts and we haven’t all been together for Thanksgiving for a long time. It was filled with puppies, food, sledding, games, and a solid dose of craziness!! My kind of holiday! But even with all the fun and chaos (most people were staying at our house) I snuck in some time late at night to come up with some wrapping ideas and I designed some free printable gift tags for you.
I’m really quite obsessed with Norwegian design right now, but I wanted to create one design that could be used in a huge variety of styles. Here’s what I came up with!
1- Traditional with a Twist
White Paper + Red Rafia + Floral Washi + Color Blocked Gift Tag
I used the Neutral Template and printed on a few different colored card stocks. I punched a hole in them, and attached with twine. I love the layered look of the colors.
2- Natural-Cozy Christmas
Sweater Texture Paper + Rope + Green Color Blocked Gift Tag
Sometimes presents can look a little flat. I love the faux textured wrapping paper (from Homegoods) paired with thick rope. Yummy Textured Goodness.
3- Bright-Fun Christmas
White Paper + Friendship Bracelet Ribbon + Geometric Tag
Friendship bracelets aren’t just for BFFs anymore! I plan on having my two daughters working on lots of friendship “ribbon” while we watch Christmas movies this month! Now, I had this piece leftover from another craft, so I have no idea how to do this exact style, but this pinterest board has tons of directions for cool ways to make your own. For the tag, I just printed the template onto bright red card stock.
I like how this present looks on the black and white paper, so I’d probably pair it with something graphic and black and white for a cool contrast.
4- Modern Christmas
B&W Stripe Paper + Studded Ribbon + Geometric Tag
One of my very favorite color combos is Black, White, and Kelly Green. I used the combo in my dining room on my frames wallpaper and two years later, still love it!
This studded ribbon is from Michaels and there’s so much you can do with it! Jess and I used it in an episode of “Knock It Off!” to make PVC Napkin rings for a modern dining room. You can check out that episode here.
5- Nordic Inspired Christmas
Kraft Paper + Black Yarn + Patterned Tags
I said it once and I’ll say it again- I’m in love with Nordic design. The dilemma is that I have 4 crazy kids and a super clean home of black and white just isn’t going to happen… so, I’m infusing elements of the style in wherever I can- like presents!
To create this asymmetric look with yarn- wrap your present 8 times (or how ever many times you’d like). Tie a knot 1/3 of the way down. Spread the yarn on one side and bunch the other. It’s really easy and gives a clean, modern look.
6- Pastel Whimsy Christmas
Scalloped Wrapping Paper + Fabric Tape + Bright Color Blocked Tags
Who says Christmas presents can’t be light, bright, and whimsical? No one. I used Target dollar bin wrapping paper, printed the Christmas Brights tag template, and then added some fabric tape. I love the mixture of patterns!
I love the look and feel of fabric tape, but I’ll be honest that it’s a pain to have to peel off the back of each piece. I use it only for extra special things… everything else gets washi!
With this tag, I also just cut a larger piece of white card stock so it was a little thicker. Then, I added my To: and From: on there.
There you have it… 6 different design styles from one little ol’ Free Printable!
Here are the keys to the kingdom… aka the download links…
Happy Wrapping Friends! If you use any of these tags, I’d love to see your pretty presents. Tag me on Instagram at @EastCoastCreative
