Easy & Elegant Christmas Gift Tags

Great news, everyone! Theo (my 2 month old) is FINALLY starting to sleep a little bit longer at a time. Which means things are happening! Laundry is getting done! Dishes are getting washed! Blog posts are being written! Floors are still unswept and un-mopped because hello no thank you.

This also means that I'm finally able to shift my attention towards Christmas and the crafty goodness that goes along with it. I can bust out my washi tape, my glittery paper, and fire up the Cricut that surely was developing some sort of separation anxiety from me after being unused for so long.

I slowly dipped my toes back into the crafting waters with these insanely easy and elegant Christmas Gift tags. Let me show you!

What I used:
3D Glue Dots
Double Sided Scotch Tape
Kraft Paper Cardstock
Glittery/Winter Cardstock
Cricut Explore Air

I didn't take any screeshots of myself in Cricut Design Space, but honestly I searched "gift tag" for the tag I wanted, "banner" for the label, and "Tree" for the Christmas tree. It was that easy. I scaled the tags so they would overlap and adjusted all of the other elements easily as well. It took me less than 5 minutes to "design" this tag. If you can even call it that - more like I made sure the different elements were sized appropriately. 

I cut about 20 of these pretties because I figure what I don't use this year can always roll over to next year. I absolutely ADORE the color combo - basically anything with Kraft Paper as the neutral is a win for me - and that shade of red from the Cricut Cardstock just screams Christmas! And you need a little glitz for the holidays, hence the gold. 

Here's the tag all assembled and labeled! Isn't that cute and easy? Or easy and elegant? I mean maybe our idea of elegant differs, but I like the simplicity and color combination enough to call it elegant so here we are. 

Did you make your own gift tags for Christmas? Share your designs with me!
