1. Stock up on a bunch of little gift boxes. They should all be the same size. In this photo, you’ll also see a Cricut, which we used to cut out numbers for gift tags. You can also use readymade vinyl numbers.

6. Use a Cricut to cut out numbers on sticky vinyl. Attach numbers to gift tags. Then, attach VELCRO® Brand Thin Fasteners to the back of each gift. Top each gift with a gift tag.
