Freebie: Care instructions and parody gift tags

As I work my way through my holiday crafting gift list, I thought I would share some freebies with those of you in the same predicament: printable care instructions and priceless parody gift tags.

Care instructions gift tags
Priceless parody gift tags

Here’s my technique for using gift tags.

  • My downloads are formatted for pre-scored inkjet business cards (Avery 8371 or Staples 610381), but you can also print on card stock and then cut afterwards.  (To cut the card stock yourself, print on an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet in portrait.  After printing, trim 1/2″ off the top and bottom margins and 3/4″ off the right and left margins.  Each tag measures 2″ x 3-1/2″.)  I print both labels the on the same sheet (care instructions on one side and priceless parody on the other).
  • Personalize the tags.
A sample personalized care tag.
A sample personalized parody tag. (I used the U.S. federal minimum wage, though of course I wish that artisan labor was valued higher!)


  • After printing and dividing the tags, I use a 1/8” hole punch to create a small hole in an upper corner.
  • With a yarn needle, I thread a small amount of yarn (very cute if it is a scrap from your project!) through the hole and into my handmade gift.

These are formatted so that you can print 10 of each tag on a page.  Enjoy!
