The Cricut is popular for scrapbook pages and for making cards, but have you ever made Cricut Tags for Christmas? Many of the cartridges have tags with precut holes, but basic shapes can easily be turned into gift tags.
Christmas Cricut Tags are useful to have on hand during the holiday season. They can be used for marking gifts, hanging on gift bags, or added to a bottle of wine. You can also hang them on the Christmas Tree for inexpensive decorations. You can make Cricut Tags as simple or elaborate as you want.
Cricut tags are easy enough to make that kids can help you too. Cut them out in solid colors and let kids decorate them with stickers and markers.
Many of the cartridges have a tag feature with special shapes and holes for string or ribbon. I used shapes from the George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge as the base for all of these tags, and then added Christmas shapes to decorate them. It’s easy to make a bunch of tags at one time using scraps left over from other projects.
After you’ve made Christmas tags, you’ll want to make tags for other occasions! They are so much fun!

How I Quickly Made 10 Christmas Cricut Tags
You can make a large quantity of tags in a short amount of time. This would be a great family activity, and kids can help too!
- Gather your supplies. I used scrap papers that were left from other projects. I had different shades of green cardstock, and a few patterned papers. I also had red, white, gold, and tan ribbon in my stash.
- Cut 4″ basic shapes using the George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge. I cut diamonds, two different stars, and two label shapes. Use the shadow key to make backgrounds for all of your shapes, cutting them out in matching colors or patterns.
- Attach the die cuts and shadows using scrapbook adhesive.
- Cut out Christmas shapes to decorate the tags. I used the Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge to cut the reindeer, and the Joys of the Season Cricut Cartridge to cut the peppermint candy, candy cane, holly, and Santa hat. I cut the die cuts using the layers feature, and put the shapes together using a Zig glue pen.
- Using a black thin tipped pen, make stitch marks around the outside of the tags to add some detail.
- Attach the die cuts to the tags.
- Using a hole punch, punch holes where you would like the ribbon.
- Tie the ribbon through the hole so you can hang your tags.
- Add Stickles Glitter Glue to the tags to decorate them.
It’s easier to make a bunch of tags at one time, instead of making just one. Then you will have them on hand when you need to add them to a gift. If you use dark colored or patterned papers, you can use a gold or silver Sharpie Marker to write on the tags.
