Free Printable Calligraphy Gift Tags!

I'm so excited to share some fun calligraphy gift tags with you all to use when gift wrapping your presents--& the best part is, they're free to download! I've created 12 different gift tags, & each are a reflection of my personal favorite Christmas songs, movie quotes, or Bible verses. I'll be introducing each one over the next "12 Days of Christmas" on a newly-wrapped present that will hopefully give you some wrapping ideas, too! There should be something for everyone--I think most of you will appreciate the goofy movie quotes included in this little mix-up.

I have them laid out & ready to print--there are 5 to a sheet. I just bought a package of ivory cardstock paper & circle binder stickers (any color will do--I used white & kraft) for the hole to the gift tag. Be sure you have a hold puncher, scissors, & ribbon, of course!

Here are a couple of samples for you to preview:

This "12th Day of Christmas" gift tag was inspired by one of my more recent favorite Christmas songs by The Very She & Him album, Christmas Day. It's kind of special to me because it was the album I listened to during my first Christmas season here in Philadelphia. No matter what, I'll always be taken back to Philly whenever I hear this album. You have to love those special little moments! What albums take you back to certain places?

I hope you Enjoy these free printable calligraphy gift tags, & that they'll bring a little extra loveliness & fun to your gifts!

Oh, & if you're wondering where that lovely "Joyeux Noel" gift tag came from, stay tuned for a second post introducing some new "Merry Christmas" gift tag stamps in 4 lovely languages for fun :)

I love your work! I doodle some in my spare time, but love your style! I tried to print these, and for the life of me, could not figure it out! Would love to print them out for the holidays.
