Gift Tags With a Message

Invite the kids in your life to decorate these tags with an important reminder.

During this season of gift exchanges, it’s important to remember that God gave us the ultimate gift — His Son.

To remind your loved ones of the true gift of Christmas, gather your family to make cross gift tags. Encourage children to use their imaginations when adding a variety of decorations to this craft!

 

SUPPLIES

  • cardstock gift tags (found at craft stores)
  • decorative paper such as scrapbooking paper
  • hole punch
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • glue
  • additional decorations (glitter, markers, glue-on jewels, raffia, ribbon, wrapping paper, etc.)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Using a pencil, draw a cross on scrapbook paper or directly onto a cardstock gift tag. If you’d like a template, find and print a cross image from the Internet, cut it out and trace around it.
  2. If you used scrapbooking paper, cut out your cross and glue it on a gift tag.
  3. Using a variety of craft supplies, decorate the gift tag, leaving room at the top to punch a hole (unless your gift tags came with holes).
  4. Lace ribbon or raffia through the hole. On one side, write, “Jesus is the true gift.” On the other side, write the name of the person the gift is for and the name of the person giving the gift.
