Holiday Gift Tag Holder

Hi everyone, I whipped up a little gift tag holder from envelopes and some Christmas scrapbook paper scraps and wanted to share it with you.  I based the design on the vertical mini album I created for the Mini Album Makers Challenge blog back in April, just substituting cut down letter size envelopes for the toilet paper rolls.

The deer on the front were inspired by the momma mule deer and her twin fawns that were munching on windfall apples in our yard a couple of days ago, so adorable!

And since I had mom and the kids on the front on my gift tag holder, I decided to put dad on the back (all the deer die cuts are from the Winter Wonderland die set).

I cut down some letter sized envelopes to make six pockets on the inside and filled each one with two little gift tags.

The tags were just cut from some scraps of Christmas scrapbook paper.

And after the gift tags are used, I thought that the recipient of this little gift could then tuck some Christmas pictures or journaling tags into the empty pockets.

It was easy to make after I figured out the dimensions and a great way to use up scrapbook scraps and embellishments that I had from previous years.  One Christmas gift done and dusted LOL!

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you have a great week, happy creating!

  1. What a great gift idea! Did I click on the wrong instructions? I'm not seeing the sizing. Thank you so much for posting this!

    1. Betty, apologies for the late reply, Blogger didn't let me know about your comment for some reason. The tutorial that you were directed to was to show you how the outer 'box' was constructed, the dimensions for your gift tag holder will depend upon the size of envelopes that you use for the pockets and the height of your tags. I used standard letter sized envelope for my pockets so the box measured about 3 3/4" wide and I had 6 pockets that were 1/8" apart so the depth of my box was about 1 1/4". My tags measured 1 3/4" x 2 3/4" so I made my box about 3 3/4" tall to accommodate them. Hope that helps! Deb xo
