Make This | Holiday Gift Tags



Alright it's November so naturally it's time to start thinking about Christmas! As you know I am kind of obsessed with printing on fabric...so here is a great holiday idea, print your own fabric gift tags!


You need:

• Fabric, I used a cheap canvas fabric from walmart (1.29 a yard)
• Freezer paper 
• Inkjet printer
• Tag Designs 
• Eyelets and a tool to put them on (if you want)
  if not you can just use a hole punch and add string.
• Ribbon or string
• About 15 min 

How To:

• Iron the Freezer paper to your fabric (glossy side facing fabric)
• Cut down to 8.5" x 11"
• Place in printer (fabric face down, depending on your printer)
• Cut tags in desired sizes, add eyelets and string
• Wrap gift and add your lovely tag!

  1. Hi! Can you clarify the printing with the freezer paper attached? Is the printing going on the freezer paper side, or on the fabric side? I'm not clear if the freezer paper is so you print on it, or if it just gives the fabric enough stability to go through the printer?

    Thanks!!

    1. Sorry, the freezer paper is just for stability, you will be printing directly to the fabric side. Hope this helps :)

  2. Hi - I love your tags idea! Can you clarify about the freezer paper? Is it just used to add stability to the fabric so it can go through the printer? I'm assuming you print on the fabric side, so I'm trying to figure out what the paper is for. And do you leave it on after you print, or tear it off? Thanks so much!!

    1. Sorry, the freezer paper is just for stability, you will be printing directly to the fabric side. Hope this helps, also yes you tear the paper off the back of the fabric once you're done printing. I like to spray scotch guard over the fabric when I'm done as well, this helps the ink to stay on the fabric.
