PLAID IS POPULAR FOR CHRISTMAS
Plaid is a very popular pattern for Christmas crafts, decor, wrapping paper, and more. I have seen tablecloths, place settings, and even dishes made with plaid and it is all adorable.
A lot of the decor seems to be centered around a rustic, outdoors type theme. It goes really well with pine trees and snow.
There are different types of Christmas plaids. The two most popular are tartan and buffalo.
- Tartan is a plaid pattern that originated in Scotland. There are many different types of tartan patterns and each one is said to represent a clan from a different region of Scotland.
- Buffalo plaid has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. It is a plainer black and red plaid. This type of plaid has been around since 1850 when the Woolrich Woolen Mills company began making a plaid shirt they called the Buffalo Check Shirt.

PRINT OFF RUSTIC PLAID CHRISTMAS GIFT TAGS
The first step in turning these cute plaid Christmas gift tags into something you can actually use is to print them off!
I always print mine off on a good quality cardstock so they won’t crumble or get bent up.

CUT OUT TAGS
The next step is to cut each individual gift tag out. Each sheet has 9 tags on it.
You can cut these out by hand with scissors, but I wouldn’t recommend doing it that way!
I personally use my favorite paper trimmer and can cut them all out in 2 minutes.
The best part of using a paper trimmer is that the cuts are SMOOTH and even. There are no jagged edges like can happen with scissors.
There are 2 ways to put these tags on your gifts. The first way is to just put a little roll of tape on the back of the tag and stick it onto the present.
The second way is to use a hole punch and punch a small hole at the top of each tag.
Once you have your hole punched just add a piece of twine, ribbon, or string and attach the rustic plaid Christmas gift tags that way.
