Recycled brown paper bag gift tag

Here is an idea to make a gift tag from a brown paper bag.It's easy to do and gives a country/ prim look to a package.

Brown paper bag
white gift tissue

1. Cut two tags exactly the same from a brown paper bag. I used a Cricut Expression to do this so they would be exact and I wouldn't have to punch a hole in them, but you can do this without one.

2. Glue the printed sides together. Let dry and punch or poke a hole in the top.

3. Take a white piece of gift tissue and cut a small snowflake from folded paper. Remember doing this in kindergarten? I had a piece of white with silver glitter on it and it worked great.

4. Glue the snowflake to the tag, let dry. Loop a piece of string through the hole and tie the ends together. You can write the 'to'and 'from' on the back.

Have fun!


  1. How fun! I wish I had a cricut then they would work up super fast!

  2. You should get one. Their home office is fairly close to you I think. It's something else to be addicted to though I tell ya!
