It’s only a few short sleeps until we celebrate the end of 2018! How was your year? Do you look back and remember is fondly? Are you looking forward to 2019? Either way, you need to celebrate! I wanted to make something unique this year to use as gift tags and once I realized I could easily make wooden ones, I knew I would be sharing them on here.

Have you used balsa wood before? It’s a fun craft material. It’s an extremely lightweight wood – it almost feels like foam sheets in your hand. You know that I already love creating things with wood, but now I can craft with wood too! lol.
- Balsa Wood
- Platinum 6 machine
- “Tag, You’re It” Steel Rule Die
- Embellishments in your theme colours (e.g. stickers, washi tape, accessories)
Here’s how you make your own wooden tags:
Start by cutting your square balsa wood sheets in half.
When it comes out, you’ll have a perfectly cut wooden gift tag that you can embellish however you like! Here are some of the tags I designed…
I made a few tree tags that easily could be used for Christmas or New Years. I just traced a tree cookie cutter for the design – couldn’t be easier!
If you’re skilled with a pen (which I am not…. sadly, lol), don’t be afraid to just draw right on them!
Washi tape and stickers can go a long way in creating unique cards and tags!
Whether you are the hostess sending cookies home in boxes, the guest labelling your food for the potluck, or the guest bringing a bottle of wine as a hostess gift, you can use one of these unique tag ideas!
Hope you found some inspiration somewhere in there! I know I always have fun when I just let myself get creative with a pen and some stickers :)
If you prefer to print your gift tags, I made these adorable “Kiss” Chocolates Printable Tags for you to download too!
