I have been doing this for years and it is a huge hit!! It literally costs me nothing, yet puts a personal touch to each gift and makes everyone smile….love that combination!! Let me show you how to make your own gift tags with a personalized twist. 😉

  • Yes you can print Christmas labels BUT I am sure I’m not the only one with a box full of duplicate photos. Especially in the day when you would order pictures and it was literally the same price to “get double prints”.
  • It was to just get one set so of course I ordered two in case I wanted to give a few away.

Still….you never get around to giving them, or you give a few and you have all these leftover but can’t bear to throw them away, thus my box FULL of extra pictures…….tell me I am not alone!!

Fist thing’s first, you need to wrap your gifts. Just wrap as normal. If you have scrapbooking scissors just use them to cut out a picture of the person who is receiving the gift.

Old pictures are best because we all forget just how young we once were and you usually have a few extras so you won’t be heartbroken when you cut around the person to make it pretty.

  • Then just tape it on, or punch a small hole in the corner and thread a ribbon thru it to attach that tag to the gift.

Using the hold punch works best if you want to write who it is from or a note on the back of the picture. Usually you will be the only clever gift tags like these so everyone will know who they’re from (especially after year 1 of doing this).

You are set!! Your personalized gift tags are set and ready to go!! If you don’t have a photograph of the person that is intended I found a cute idea from The Idea Room for a printable tag you can personalize as well!
