DIY Chipboard Gift Tags...

These gift tags are handmade by me from a paper bag made of thin chipboard I saved from being thrown out.

These little things are super easy to make and sure to wow your gift recipients. To make these chipboard gift tags here's what you'll need:

  • Thin Chipboard
  • Jute twine
  • Wooden beads(Optional)
  • Glue
  • Butterfly shaped punch
  • A large hole punch
  • Scissors
Cut the Chipboard into uniform rectangular pieces. My love for butterflies is never ending so I used a butterfly shaped punch. I glued the butterflies punched from brown and white colored paper.

Use a cotton crochet threads or satin ribbons and leave it long enough to tie the tag. I used jute twine and wooden beads to give these tags a rustic look. They look lovely and are perfect for your Green gift wrapping.Write a personal note on these tags and use them to gift your loved ones.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! If you tried making them then click some bright pictures and send them to me at

Lovely post Neelima and I got to know about the butterfly punch. Had seen your previous posts but used to think you had cut them out manually and sounded like too much effort. I too love butterflies and have a bunch of them tattooed on my left wrist :) Is the punch easily available? never seen here :( Also, are there more shapes available?

Hi Gagan. I did use the butterfly punch, I dint cut them out manually. If you have bookstores like landmark or walden near to your place, You will find them there. You can also order them online on few sites like itsybitsy and craftgully. Yes, there are many shapes available in these punches :)

Thanks Neelima. I think I will have to checkout a physical store next time I am in Delhi :) I checked creaftgully and loved it. Thanks for telling me about it. They don't have the punch but they do keep a lot of good stuff.
