Christmas tags are a sort of sign to tie on Christmas gifts or stickers for name tags at Christmas parties. Basically, you write your name on the Christmas tag. For the ones on the hanger of Christmas gifts, you have to write the name of the receiver and the sender. The size of Christmas tags is normally 1.8 x 3.2 inches. The contents of Christmas tags are the names of the sender, the name of the receiver, and Merry Christmas greetings. The color of Christmas tags should be, at least, the color of Christmas like red, green, and gold.
Everybody can make Christmas tags. At Kindergarten, children and teachers make tags to know each other's names. They enjoy drawing snowman on their tags. Teenagers and young-adults make tags for Christmas parties and Christmas gifts at school or at home with their peers. Adults use tags as name tags at Christmas parties. If they are parents, they make it for the kids and other Christmas gifts they want to send to the relatives. Art workers also make Christmas tags for Christmas stocking tags they sell.
Generally, you have to write your name on Christmas tags. But, it depends on what occasion you want to wear or show. Some Christmas tags can be inspired by bag tags you often see at the airport. But, the sender can be Santa Claus or your friends. If it is from Santa, you will see the bad or good attitude check-list of you throughout the year. On tags, you can also write a short Christmas greeting like 'Merry Christmas from my family to yours.' Therefore, as it is also for a Christmas gift, you will have to write your name, the receiver's name, and the address of the receiver.
The basic material to make a Christmas tag is plain tags or paper. But, depending on your creativity, you can make tags out of leftover fabric and felt. If that's your idea, you will need some sewing kit like a needle, thread, and pincushion. For making tags from paper and handmade, you also need writing and drawing utensils such as a pencil, drawing pen, markers, colored pencil, and watercolor. Do-it-yourself Christmas tags might be tiring and take a long time to make it. As the result, you can just buy alphabet and character stickers or stamps.
