Crafting - Christmas gift tags

So, this is my first ever attempt at making my own gift tags (or my own anything for that matter, I'm not too creative when it comes to arty things) and I'm really happy with them! Granted they are really simple, in fact my five year old could have probably made a nice job of them. I bought the stamps from Stampendous, if you like them they're here
I'm from the UK so found them on Ebay, along with the ink. I decided to make them all into Rudolph and add little 2mm red crystal noses, here's a close up.

 I put a small amount of detail on the backs too, like these

I'm planning on wrapping my gifts in brown paper with embellishments this year, I'm so excited!

How are you wrapping yours? Do any of you crafty people think my tags could do with something more, or is it enough as it is?


  1. how gorgeous! i know some people who would spend loadsa money buying tags like that!! last year I used a punch to punch out hearts in deep red card and wrote on them in silver pen, then attached them with little felt decorations i bought for super cheap at wilkinsons!! this year everyone is getting food hampers, so cellophane and ribbon galore!!! :)

  2. Those are absolutely beautiful! You're so clever! Now, where's your Etsy shop so I can buy some?

  3. Thanks both for the lovely comments - no Etsy shop as yet, don't give me ideas though....
    Victoria, we did hampers last year with home made Christmas cake & chutneys, they went down a storm, good luck :)

  4. these are just so lovely, and very impressive for your first attempt! Jane
