In the spirit of the season I've decided to design 12 free printable tags that are great for DIY gifts or for really any gift. These are high resolution and come 12 on a single 8.5×11 page. These printables are not templates, but simply an image you can print. If you have some thick paper to run through your printer you can print these up and have nice tags ready to go. Download is at the end of this post.
The below mockups are examples of what the tags could look like. They aren't exact. The mockup templates are not included in the download.
The 12 Printable Tag Designs
Here are the 12 designs that are included. They are in a basic tag shape. The tags are lined up so you can easily cut them out.
How to Use Them
The files are high resolution jpeg files. They are 8.5×11 in dimension with only one margin on the right. So what that means is that if you print these at home you might have to resize them (which is easy) when printing. I believe all printers have a selection that allows you to “fit” a page to your paper so nothing gets cut off. It might be called “fit picture to frame”, which is what mine is called. Of course do a test print on regular copy paper first.
Copy paper is too thin of course for a tag so it's recommended to use a thicker paper like maybe an 80lb. I think most new printers can handle thicker paper like photo paper. Consult your printers manual if you're not sure how thick of paper you can print on. Also, I designed these using only black (except one) so that they don't use up color inks and will look nice printed on beige/brown paper.
After printing simply use scissors to cut along all the lines and use a hole-punch to punch a hole in it. If you want to reinforce the area where the hole is punched, you could use some tape of some sort if you wanted.

Real Life Examples
I used these labels for some gifts I created. Here is what they look like. I actually printed these on regular copy paper, then glued them to some flat cardboard… actually from a box of Coke. Glued the paper to the cardboard using regular ol' Elmers glue, then cut them out with scissors.
