Tis the season to give gifts! And what better gifts to give and receive but yummy homemade treats!
Below is a materials list and the details with how we created Wood Gift Tags and Labels. While the tags and labels are similar looking, changing up the ribbon, jute, font and or paper punch design can make each a unique piece of art.
- 8.5″ x 11″ Cherry .010″ thick Fleece back Short grain
- 8.5″ x 11″ White Pine .010″ thick Fleece back Short grain
- Other species available HERE
- Computer & Laser Printer
- .25″ Paper Punch
- 2.5″ Round Paper Punch
- 3″ Round Paper Punch
- 3″ Scalloped Paper Punch
- Beacon’s 3-in-1 Glue
- Satin Ribbon
- Natural Jute Cord
We used Word to create each set of words for our tags and labels. The key is to leave enough space around each set of words so that your paper punch doesn’t overlap and not make a complete circle. We used a standard HP Laser printer to print all the labels on the 8.5″ x 11″ White Pine Fleece Back sheet. We punched out each set of words with a 2.5″ round paper punch. Using a 3″ Round or Scallop paper punch, we punched out all the backing pieces from a sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ Cherry Fleece Back sheet. To adhere the 3″ scalloped or round Cherry Wood Paper to the White Pine Wood Paper, we used Beacon’s 3-in1 Glue which can be purchased at any craft store or Amazon. At the top of the tags, we used a 1/4″ paper punched for a small round hole for the ribbon and natural jute.

We purchased the macaroons from a local store.
We canned our own grape jelly from grapes on our property.
