Christmas presents go under the tree as soon as we can get around to wrapping them, so they become part of the decorations for a couple of weeks. I like to change things up each year with the wrapping and gift tags, and the kids help now that they’re old enough. I came up with these laurel leaf gift tags because they’re easy to make (important with kids, or when you’re going to make a lot of them and don’t want it to take forever), but they still look cute. Bonus: they lie flat, so they don’t get squished by the other presents.
Start with kraft paper key tags as the base of your gift tags. Cut simple leaves out of card stock in two shades of green, then drew a leaf vein down the center of each with a green brush pen or marker. Line up two leaves with the top of each tag, punch a small hole, then use a to assemble. Metallic markers show up nicely against kraft paper and catch the light, and green satin ribbon on each present ties in with the tags’ laurel leaves.
