You will be amazed when you see how easy it is to create your own DIY embossed gift tags! This is a fun, simple project for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, birthdays and more!
You’ll want paper gift tags, a Wagner heat gun, an embossing pen, and embossing powder. We cut our own gift tags out of kraft cardstock.
Write the Names
Use the embossing pen to draw out cursive, calligraphy, all caps, bubble letters, or your normal handwriting on the gift tags.
Sprinkle Embossing Powder
Pour embossing powder onto the gift tags while the ink is still wet. Ensure what you wrote is fully covered.
Pour Off Excess
Pour the excess embossing powder back into the jar so you can use it again later.
Brush Off Remaining Powder
Sometimes, the powder will stick on the tag in unwanted areas. Having a dry paint brush to carefully remove the remaining particles was super helpful!
Use your Wagner heat gun to apply heat to the gift tag. We used the FURNO 300 on the low setting and it took about 20 seconds.
Watch It Transform
Your handwriting will come to life right before your eyes! We found doing a few at a time worked well.
Choose some fun wrapping paper, tie them up with string, and add your beautiful gift tags! You can do this for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, birthdays and more.
