Make holiday presents stand out by adorning them with homemade gift tags created from clip art, recycled materials, craft punches, and photos.
The littlest mittens can be customized with thin ribbon strips attached with craft glue. You can also give your recipients two hands (one with "to," the other with "from") and a pair of mittens adorned with glued-on buttons. Then, sock it to 'em with a cute addition to a stocking: a glued-on snowflake made of yarn.
Ready to spread the spirit? Buy your favorite wine by the case, print these custom wine labels, and bestow friends with some liquid cheer. Just pick your label below, print on adhesive-backed paper, cut, and stick them to the bottles (they peel off easily).
Once the gift has been revealed, these handmade trinkets can serve as ornaments or holiday decorations for seasons to come.
To make the tree, start with our template, then use a hot-glue gun to attach a glittery pipe cleaner.
For the poinsettia, cut 2 bump-chenille stems in half, and twist together at the center.
You can also make a star with our template, then glue on twinkling pipe cleaners.
Top gifts with pretty red poinsettias made from shopkeeper's tags. Fold six tags in half. Cut a point at bottom of tag, then unfold. Secure all six tags by inserting a white brad through the existing holes. If you want leaves, cut them from artist's paper folded in half; adhere with glue dots.

Those mauves you mulled over for the dining room look pretty on paper (if not on your walls). So consider turning leftover paint chips into colorful gift tags. Use a circle cutter or a tag craft punch to create the desired shapes. If you're penning notes on dark swatches, use a white gel pen for contrast.
