Free Printable Christmas Gift Tags

The holiday season is upon us and while I enjoy the shopping part, I don’t love the task of wrapping.  But since this is the season of giving, I’m giving you some cute {and free} printable Christmas gift tags to hopefully, make your job of wrapping a little easier!

I was in the mood for a chalkboard design this year, so each tag features a chalkboard background with various sayings.  Each sheet has six different designs, with two copies of each design for a total of 12 gift tags per sheet.  I used card stock to print them and then just hole punched them and tied them with ribbon, but you could also tape them directly to the package.

Here’s a closer look at each of the 12 designs and how they’ll print out for you.  You can download the file here.  Simply save and print as you would any other picture!  Be sure to set your printer Settings to print at the highest quality so that they’ll come out looking their best.


I have yet to fully set up my wrapping station {which consists of a folding table in front of the TV and a great excuse to binge watch my favorite British mysteries!}, but will be doing so soon.  I love the way these tags look on the few presents I have wrapped so far, though!  And if you want to learn to make this fancy bow, you can read {or watch} the tutorial HERE.

IKEA Hack – For a Built-In Look

When we redesigned our daughter’s room, we wanted her furniture to have the look of a built-in so that it had a “clean” look that utilized the entire wall and maximized the space in her room.  She also needed a large work surface for her design and sewing projects.  Unfortunately, we aren’t handy and so making the furniture wasn’t an option and our budget really only allowed for IKEA furniture, and so it was time for a little hack.

Caveat: When I say we aren’t handy, I really and truly mean we aren’t handy, so if we can do it, you can do it!  As with any project, use proper protective gear and equipment to ensure safety.


The measurements of her wall and her off-center window meant that a standard desk and dresser wouldn’t fit the space and still have a built-in look.  Instead, we decided to create our own work surface using two LINNMON table tops with MALM dressers as the base.


Step 1: Creating the Framework

We started with one six-drawer MALM dresser and one three-drawer, one on each side of the wall.  The MALM dresser is 19″ deep, but the LINNMON top is 23.625″, so we pulled the dressers away from the wall so that they would align with the top.  As a bonus, this provided extra storage behind the dressers for her work boards and also plugs and various cords.


Step 2: Securing the Top

Once the dressers were in place and leveled, we put one 78.75″ LINNMON top on and secured with screws to the dresser from underneath.   We then used a second LINNMON and cut to fit the remaining length.  We took the table top to a millwork shop to have it cut.  Given that it isn’t solid wood, it is critical that the saw be straight and sharp in order to not mangle the surface.  Ask them to do a practice cut before making your final cut to ensure it will have a clean, finished edge.

When securing the top to the dressers, keep in mind that the length of your screws needs less than the thickness of your dresser plus top so that the screw does not go through the top.  Also, use several clamps to hold the top securely in place while you screw the two pieces together.  {Poor hubby didn’t know I’d be sharing this pic!}


Step 3: Add Bookcases

Two BILLY bookcases anchored to the wall on top completed the look!  As a bonus, the BILLY bookcases are only 11″ deep, which is plenty deep for her books and knick-knacks, but not as deep as the LINNMON table top, leaving extra surface space in front on the shelves for her projects.  The BILLY bookcases also come standard with a cutout at the bottom.  While this cutout is meant to fit around a baseboard when sitting on the floor, it works perfectly to feed cords through on a desktop!


The total height of her work station is 32 1/8″, which is slightly taller than a standard desk which sits between 28″ – 30″.  To solve this issue and ensure she was still comfortable when working, we gave her a cute Lucite and fur adjustable chair so that she can raise herself up to the proper working height.



She now has a custom, oversized work surface plus nine drawers and bookshelves.  Perfect for our budding fashion designer!

We still have on our To Do list to add trim to the vertical spaces and crown moulding to the top to really give it a custom look, but for now, this is perfect for her and she loves her turquoise and white puffs that fill the top, so she’s enjoying her new space!
