One of my favorite things about the holiday season is wrapping presents! I know the wrapping paper gets torn off immediately, so you can see the awesome present inside, but I still love the way nicely wrapped presents look sitting under the tree. (At least for the first few minutes before you start unwrapping them!) To help make your holiday gifts even more special, today I’m sharing some super cute DIY paper doily holiday gift tags that take less than 10 minutes to make!

DIY Paper Doily Holiday Gift Tags
Here’s what you need for these holiday gift tags:
- paper doilies
- kraft paper
- 1″ circle punch (or scissors and a steady hand!)
- hole punch
- baker’s twine, thread, yarn, etc.
Glue the doily onto the kraft paper and let it dry. Once the glue is completely dry, use your circle punch to punch out circles around the edge of the doily. I like the “half doily, half kraft paper” look, but you can punch your circles out so that more or less of the doily shows in the finished tag if you want to change it up a bit!
Punch a small hole at the top of the tag, then thread a short piece of baker’s twine through the hole and tie the ends, and you have a holiday gift tag!
If there’s enough room on the front, write the recipient’s name. Otherwise, write on the back.
