I haven't forgotten about my little tags series. I just hadn't come up with a new idea until this past weekend. Excuse the darkish photos. It's so gray here today. It's the perfect day for wrapping presents!
As a general rule gift tags are small. Sometimes really tiny. This makes it difficult for children, like ours, who are in their first years of writing to write on tags themselves. I made these holiday tags so that the kids can address the gifts to their teachers and friends this year. They are fairly large (1/4 of a letter size sheet of paper) so that they can fit in everything comfortably. D gets a little frustrated when things aren't just so (gets that from me?), so I thought that providing him with the guide lines he's used to using in school would help out. Little C has been learning to write as well so, with a little help, she can use these too.
I am providing a free PDF for this project which can be downloaded below. One sheet has four different holiday motifs and only has to be cut into four equal sized tags. The top margin is slightly wider to allow room for the two punched holes that are used for threading yarn or ribbon through them. As a final touch, our tags, have rounded corners. Enjoy! :)
