Let’s make some awesome DIY magnet gift tags.

It is so fun to create darling gift tags to put on presents but it makes me sad to think that they might get thrown in the trash. So, after some thinking things through – I decided to try this fun project using the magnet cartridge for the Creative Station by Xyron. It is one of my favorite craft room tools because it is designed to do so many fabulous things with my doodles, drawings and paintings. I am super excited to share these DIY Magnet Gift Tags that can be used to decorate darling gifts and then be used afterwards too.

It requires no electricity,  no batteries AND no heat. It is as easy to use and turning the handle. You can literally use it RIGHT out of the box to make stickers!

Materials and Supplies Needed

To Make these magnetic tags, you only need a few things. Here is a list of what you should have gathered and ready in order to be successful.

  • Creative Station from Xyron
  • Magnetic Cartridge for Creative Station
  • Free Printable Gift Tags (OR you can make your own!)
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch
  • Ribbon
  • Colored Pencils, Crayons or Markers

Directions to Make Tags

These are the steps I used to make the DIY magnet tags. While I cut the tags before and after running them through the machine – you COULD wait and only cut them once. I just don’t like to waste any of the magnetic/laminate material so try to use it wisely.

Step One

Color the free printable tags. You can download the file at the end of this post.  You could do this any creative way that you like. I did them with rainbow stripes using crayons.

Step Two

Cut the tags out right outside of the black line around the edges and put them on the Creative Station platform right side up. Push them all the way into until they are stopped by the cartridge’s magnet meeting the laminate.

Step Three

Turn the handle to gently run the DIY magnet tags through the machine. It will apply magnet to one side and laminate the other. Once they are all the way through, use the slider to cut them away from the Creative Station.

Step Four

Cut the tags out again!

Once the package is opened and the wrap thrown away, the magnet is still awesome for adding to any magnetic board, refrigerator or surface.
