DIY: Luxe Gift Tags

Louise is the author of Laid Off Mom, and she’s also one of the kindest people I know. With a background as a costume designer and fashion apparel instructor, Louise creates beautiful handmade projects for her family and their home. This simple DIY will provide the perfect adornments for all those gifts you’ll soon be wrapping.

For every perfect gift, there’s a perfect tag — something thoughtfully put together, not your run of the mill sticker slapped onto a present. This DIY is just that: a must to add to all your presents this year!


– stamp (of your choosing)
– stamp pad
– pins
– fabric scissors
– white cotton or light to medium weight fabric (your preference)
– twine/ribbon (your preference)

Step One

Print out the provided template, cut it out, pin to your fabric and cut out your fabric pieces.

Step Two

Working w/ one fabric piece at a time, fold in half and stamp the front of your little pouch.

Step Three

Fold your fabric piece over the other way so that the stamp is on the inside, and sew along the seam allowance (hand sewing is totally ok!).  The dotted lines on the template indicate seam allowance.

Step Four

Fold the top over (approx. ¾ in.) and slip your twine/ribbon through the channel. Pin in place.

Step Five

Sew the channel shut, making sure not to sew the twine/ribbon.

Step Six

Sew the other side of the gift tag, but don’t sew the channel opening.

Step Seven

Flip the bag over and fill it with a special note. Adorn your most special gifts!
