What You'll Need:

  • Mixing bowl

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • Parchment paper

  1. Mix together the flour and salt, giving the ingredients a stir to make sure they're incorporated. Slowly add the warm water, and stir until the mixture comes together.

Use cookie cutters to create shapes, and then decorate the gift tags with letter stamps or draw designs with a toothpick. And you can create colors by adding a few drops of tempera paint or even a sprinkle of glitter. Don't forget to punch a hole at the top of tags for stringing to your packages!

  1. Place the finished gift tags on a parchment-lined sheet pan, and let dry overnight.

  1. Use the finished tags for embellishing holiday gifts or even for decorating around the house! And you can use a black marker to personalize the tags while wrapping presents.
