This gifting hack is inadvertently brought to you by my friend’s husband. I was visiting them in Denver for a few days earlier this fall and we were talking about wrapping presents. Anne has purchased so many cloth gift bags from my Etsy site The Blind T-Rex, and we discussing gift tags. I’ve made some DIY tags in previous years, and frankly, I didn’t enjoy it.
Anne’s husband casually mentioned that he uses old business cards as gift tags. Freaking.Genius.
The job I had before I left to work for myself, required you turn in all your old business cards upon resigning. So I spent 10 minutes on Canva creating a template and uploaded it to Vistaprint. Simply google “Vistaprint coupon code” and you’ll find a ton. I selected 500 business cards for $9.99, and with shipping, I paid a total of $14. They will be delivered in less than two weeks. I plan to use a simple hole punch to create a hole through the gift tag hole. The gift bags I make and sell come with a ribbon to thread it all together.
The hardest part of the whole project was finding the business card dimensions on VistaPrint. If you want to make your own, 1050×600 will give you a slight border on the gift tag. Oh and because I love and your gorgeous faces, here is the downloadable version of the gift tag above.
Vistaprint is insanely annoying about trying to get you to add extra things to your order, but just keep clicking “next” and get yourself to check out. For the price of 30 gift tags at Target, I’m getting a whopping 500!
Now, if only someone would purchase all the gifts for me and take one more thing off of my to-do list.
