Free is a word I actually like a great deal. I like to give gifts, like these printable gift tags. Gnomes like to give gifts too. They’re actually pretty well known for secretly doing chores around your garden. Which is definitely the kind of gift a girl appreciates. And since this is GNOME Craft Party Takeover Week here at Well Crafted Studio, I thought some FREE Printable Gnome Gift Tags would be an awesome idea.
ETA 2020- Recently I updated this Gnome Tags project with a Cricut-friendly version. You can find them in my Free Creative Resource Library! For these you would upload the design into Cricut Design Space and save them as a Print then Cut design.
Back to 2019- And there are GNOME DESIGNS EVERYWHERE!
It’s been a pretty rocking week so far. And I hope that you’ll take a minute to download today’s Printable Gnome Gift Tags! They’re super cute and are a great way to add original, hand-drawn designs to your holiday gift-giving this year. Although I have seen some pretty cool designs at Target already, how much cooler is it to use something that this artsy and unique. Something no one else will have seen, I mean, unless you shared this blog. And then they’ll recognize it, high five handmade with you, and get what you’re so excited about. Total gnome bonding moment.
Gnome the Possibilities.
These tags were created entirely in Procreate with the PNG files that I gave you yesterday for the Gnome Holiday Stickers. So, that means that you could take those same PNG files and create your own gift tags, gift wrap, t-shirts, etc. The possibilities are immense.
If you’d like to know more about Procreate then I would LOVE to have you check out any of my Procreate tutorials on my YouTube channel.
How to Make Gnome Gift Tags
Supplies and Materials
- Gnome Tags PDF’s- Front, and Back from my Creative Resource Library (OR you can get the Gnome Printable Tags Print then Cut file in the Library too.)
- Printer– I like my Canon Crafter’s Printer because it has a rear feed tray and I can use heavier cardstock or other materials.
- Scissors and Hole Punch, or a Cricut (if you’re using the Print then Cut Red 2020 version)
- Twine or String
Step One: Download the Design Files.
You’ll find them in the Creative Resource Library on this site under PDF’s. Make sure you grab the Front and the Back of the Gift Tags.
Note: You’ll notice the tag shape on the file for the Back of the tags isn’t as defined as it is on the Front. I did that on purpose. 🙂 When I did print tests at home I realized that many home printers can’t do a double-sided print with perfect front-to-back alignment. This way they cut great every time.
Step Two: Print Them Out
Insert white cardstock into your printer tray. Use the double-sided option in your printer settings. Then do a double-side color print of the Gnome Gift Tags Front and Back.
Note: IF you’re using the updated Print then Cut designs they are not double-sided.
Step Three: Cut Them Out
For this step, you can just go ahead and use scissors and a hole punch to cut out the tag shapes from the front of the design. OR you can use a cutting machine like a Cricut.
Step Four: Add the String or Twine
Cut a piece of the twine or string about 5″ or so and fold it in half. Insert the folded part in the middle of the string through the hole in the tag. Then take the ends of the string and insert it through the looped part of the string (that you put through the tag’s hole). Pull securely on the ends to tighten around the paper. SO CUTE RIGHT???
