DIY Stocking Tags

These DIY Stocking Tags are easy to create using cardstock and a Cricut® Explore Air™ 2 in Cobalt.

Our Christmas tree is a nod to the past so I wanted to match that vibe with our stockings.

These DIY stocking tags are so personal and can be changed from year to year!


I had never used a Cricut before, but when I received this Cricut® Explore Air™ 2 in Cobalt, exclusively sold at JOANN, I was so excited to test it out! Let me tell you, it did not disappoint!

I played around with it a bit and followed the included instructions to set it up. I love that it connects right to my laptop, iPad, or iPhone. I used my laptop and it was so simple!

I wanted to create some stocking tags as our stockings are just a simple red stocking. I wanted a fun embellishment that would match the vintage feels I have in our Christmas living room this year!

Cricut making stocking tags

Using some cardstock I already had, I then created this easy stocking tag design on the Cricut app on my laptop. Cricut has so many different fonts, shapes, designs, and projects to choose from. You can also create your own which is what I did!

I used a font that is included with the system because I love that it looks like a typewriter font to play off the vintage feels. I then added 2 circles around our names, one for the actual stocking tag and one for the ribbon to go through.

Making the DIY stocking tags

It was so easy to create the stocking tag design in the canvas. Once my design was complete, I followed the instructions on the app and it told me which pieces to load into the Cobalt Cricut® Explore Air™ 2 and which buttons to push in order for my DIY stocking tags to be made.

I was able to make 2 stocking tags for each piece of cardstock. I probably could have fit more, but I wanted to ensure I had enough space between each stocking tag.

The Cricut® Explore Air™ 2 in Cobalt cuts and writes up to 2x faster than previous models. I was shocked at how fast I completed this DIY project.

Cricut and stocking tags

I am excited to try out more projects using this Cricut® Explore Air™ 2! I am thinking maybe some tee shirts?! It cuts over 100 materials so you can create tons of fun things!

If you have a crafter to buy for this Holiday season, I would highly consider getting them a Cricut® Explore Air™ 2 in Cobalt! They will LOVE it!

I had so much fun creating these DIY stocking tags! I think they are the perfect addition to our stockings!
