Learn how to create festive gift tag ornaments on your cutting machine! These 12 Days of Christmas cut files can be use to create paper gift tags that also make excellent ornaments.
Welcome to day #12, the final day of my “12 Days of Holiday Crafts” series! I absolutely love crafting for the holidays and the crafts I share during this series each year are some of my favorites! Today I’m sharing these fun and festive ornament gift tags with illustrations for the 12 Days of Christmas! The 12 Days of Christmas cut files are now available in my Designing Cheerfully Etsy shop as one PNG bundle!
This project has been on my mind for quite a while and I’m so excited to have finally made them! I illustrated all of the designs with pencil and paper before turning them into PNG cut files. They would make excellent gift tags as well as ornaments! I used sparkly and metallic papers so they really shine on our Christmas tree!
Check out the video to see how easy it is to assemble these once they are cut! Deciding on what pretty papers to use will probably take the longest!For most of my gift tag ornaments I chose not adhere the layers together but rather keep them all separate. If you want to adhere them, use double-sided tope to quickly get the job done. The ornament below is made with three layers – the partridge in a pear tree tag plus two solid tags made from metallic cardstock!

For my ornament gift tags, I used DCWV glitter cardstock and Cricut Metallic Kraft Board. The DCWV glitter paper is nice because it does not shed glitter! I have found the paper in the smaller 6″x6″ stacks is slightly thicker but with 4″ ornaments I could only fit one to a page.
The Kraft Board by Cricut is beautiful! For me, it worked best as the ornament back since Cricut Explore didn’t cut the intricate parts of the design very well out of the Kraft Board. I don’t think you’d have this same problem with a Maker machine! :) I hope this was helpful! I’ve linked to the paper I used on Amazon, but if you have a Michaels or Joanns nearby you can try to grab it on sale :)
I hope you have enjoyed my “12 Days of Holiday Crafts” series this year!” You can see all of this year’s crafts PLUS crafts from the previous years. Happy Holiday Crafting!! :)
