Printable Gift Tag and Silhouette Portrait Giveaway

Posted by  ·  August 21, 2013  ·  Last Updated: May 12, 2016

Make that gift extra special with a handmade gift tag! The Silhouette makes it easy! Just replace the blade with one of their many colors of sketch pens.

The Silhouette website is full of designs that can be downloaded for .99 cents. I found this little sketch of a gift tag. I thought it would be perfect on pre made office type hang tags. I sized the image to the size of my tag.

Place the tag on the cutting mat and go! I found it easier to place the tag over two inches.
