Since we've been attending and will attend several more birthday parties, the idea of making my own gift tags seemed appealing especially since most of the parties are 1st birthday parties and formal cards are pretty useless if you are giving a gift of something other than cash. Plus these handmade gift tags using Silhouette Sketch pens are adorable and super easy to make!

Simply find the tag shape you want to use in the Silhouette shop and ungroup. Cut the shape with the blade and then place your image inside the tag. Remove the tag or change to no cut. Place Sketch Pen in the Silhouette and then change the setting to cut using the sketch pen.

I also sketched the image I wanted on the gift tag prior to cutting the gift tag shape and it worked great that way as well.

If you miscalculate just try again because it literally takes minutes to make. I love all the sketch designs and can't wait to make more!
