With Christmas less than one week away it’s crunch time!! Here’s a last minute gift idea if you’re looking for something simple and quick!


  • 4×4 Wood Block (You can buy these online or get them cut down at Home Depot)
  • Paint and Brush
  • Vinyl Sticker or Stencil
  •  X-ACTO Scissors
  • X-ACTO Templates
  •  CraftBond Double-sided Tape
  • Fabric, Ribbon or Twine
Directions (sorry the pictures aren’t the best…camera issues):
  1. The first thing you’ll want to do is paint your 4×4 block and allow to dry. Once it is dry, apply the vinyl sticker. I made my vinyl sticker in The Silhouette Studio, but you can always buy a pre-made sticker from your local craft store or use a stencil.
  2. I found these fun Elmers templates at Walmart to make the gift tag. Sometimes it’s nice to just pull out a template rather than my whole cutting machine. All you do is trace the tag onto a piece of paper with pencil.
  3. Once you have your design traced use your  X-ACTO Scissors to cut it out.
  4. Then cut a 2 in strip of fabric and/or ribbon and attatch to the block with CraftBond Double-sided Tape
I bought most of my supplies from Walmart in the Elmers section. To view my whole shopping trip go here.
That’s it! These gifts are so simple to make, and everyone loves them!
Thanks for reading, hope you have a great week!
