Bookmark Gift Tag

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Top off gifts with these handmade gift tags that double as bookmarks.


  • 8- by 2 1/2-inch piece of card stock
  • Craft knife
  • Glue
  • Pencil
  • Colored markers
  • Con-Tact paper
  • Ribbon


  • Draw a simple shape, such as a fish, a flower or a curvy earthworm on the card stock.
  • With a craft knife, cut out the shape (a parent's job) and discard it. Next, glue the card stock onto a slightly larger piece of card stock that's been cut from a contrasting color.
  • Use markers to color in the design and print the name of the person who will be receiving the gift.
  • Make a hole in one end of the tag and tie a loop of ribbon through it for tying the tag to its package. Finally, laminate the tags with Con-Tact paper to make them long lasting.
