Easy 'n Cute Handmade Gift Tags

A nice gift tag makes your gift a little bit special. And don’t forget, a handmade gift shows people you really care!
Now we’ll walk you through a few smart ideas for creating cute gift tags with design paper.

You will need...


  • Design paper


  • Scissors or any other cutting instrument

Before you start

  • Make sure you have your design paper ready on your favorite paper type.
  • Don’t forget, you can print design paper using the smartphone app "Epson Creative Print".

Creating the base

Print your design on slightly thick paper and cut it to the size you want. Punch a hole with a paper punch, thread some cotton, and bingo! You have a basic gift tag!

If you don't have any thick paper, just print the pattern on plain paper, and then paste it onto any thick paper such as a postcard.

—Idea 1—

Overlap two or more tags in different shapes and different patterns to create a brand new tag of your own!

The image shows two overlapping tags: A square one and a swallowtail flag. Handwrite a nice, cool message! The trick to overlapping different patterns is to use colors with similar tones.

Use a variety of paper types

Using craft paper and tracing paper as well as white paper, you can make your tags look gorgeous!

Make sure you use paper compatible with inkjet printers.
