FREE Holiday Greeting Tag and Pocket | December 03, 2012

I know the incessant carolling can be mind-numbing, the overly crowded shops are tear-your-hair-out frustrating and the tinsel is overwhelming but I love this season. Probably because it gives me an excuse to go details crazy. And we all know how much I love my details. Wrapping, baking, decorating... oh my!

With this holiday freebie, I decided to go for a little more of a traditional vibe... because the classics can be fun too!

It's a kind of tag/card hybrid to adorn your gifts or send in the mail- and it's available in 2 designs. I have also included a cute red and blue plaid pocket to tuck the tag into. The recipient can put the tag on display, much like a greeting card, except it can be tied to the Christmas tree or a hook, or decorative branches...

Oh, and the little toothpick signs that you see in some of these photos are part of freebie set that I will make available soon, so stay tuned!

If you have any issues downloading, try right clicking (Control and Click on the mac) on the download button and saving directly to your computer.

Please note that the PDF is a 2 page document. The tag designs are on the first page and the pocket design on the second page. 

NOTE: IF you are using Mac Preview to view or print this file, the colours may come out completely wrong. Save the file to your computer (Press Control and Click on the download button and "Save Linked File as") and open with Adobe Acrobat Reader instead. If you do not have this program, you can download it for free from here. Never print with Mac Preview.


Print out onto good quality, thick white card stock. For those located in Melbourne, specialty paper suppliers include Papyrus Design, Rock Paper Scissors and Papermarc.

For more vibrant colours, try thick glossy photo paper. This is usually available in any stores that stock printer supplies- i.e Dick Smith. Be aware that these papers have the brand watermark on the back.

Always make sure, in the printer 'setup' that you set your printer quality settings to "High" and you select the appropriate paper type (e.g. Photo Paper Plus Glossy II).

I have used a Canon Pixma MG6150 Colour Inkjet Printer in conjunction with Canon Pixma Photo Paper Plus Glossy II (260 gsm). Keep in mind that this photo paper does have the Canon watermark on the back. 

To cut out the artwork I use an x-acto knife with a ruler and cutting board.

For the plaid pocket, cut along the solid lines, score and fold along the dotted lines. Attach double-sided tape or glue to the white tabs on either side.

I used a 1/8" circle CARL craft punch for the hole to connect the twine.

I have used a 1 inch circle craft punch to create the semi-circle in the top of the pocket.

    You make me wanting to start bloging! :D
    I have a question about the fonts: how does it work with copyright för them? Where do you get them, are they free? :)
  15. Hi Amy

    These are just gorgeous! I love the slip-in envelope idea. Makes me want to get a circle craft punch just to cut into the edge of the envelope! (But I must stop buying craft products...grrr... there have gone to all digital creations these days)

    Also very handy to have some shops listed (in Australia) for paper supplies. These seem to be getting fewer these days..hmm... will have to search out their e-counterparts to see where they have gone.

    cheerio, Lou
