I can honestly say that I LOVE wrapping Christmas presents. Every year I create a sort of “theme” for my gifts which usually consists of three patterns or colors of coordinating wrapping paper, a couple of options for ribbon, and some sort of embellishment from candy canes to mini ornaments. One year I even tied tiny cookie cutters to each gift. (definitely a favorite)
This year, all of the presents under our tree will either be dressed in polka dots, gold glittered paper, or a teal and red combination. And each gift will have one of these holiday photo gift tags attached. Making your own gift tags is a simple way to customize Christmas gifts and it only takes a few minutes.
I shot photos of decorations I already had around my home like tiny gold jiggle bells, red ornaments, and candy canes. Then I gave them a border that matched my wrapping paper palette and printed them out on photo paper using my Canon PIXMA printer.
You could also use black and white family photos to make your gifts even more personal. When Santa comes down the chimney this year, he’s sure to be impressed with your gift-wrapping skills!
Here’s what you need to make these DIY Holiday Photo Gift Tags:
Photo Paper- Either 8.5x11” or 4x6” will work. (I used Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy II)
Gift tag Template- download 8.5 x 11 template here or 4 x 6 template here
Assorted Ribbons & Wrapping Paper
Step 1: Add photo paper to your printer.
Step 2: Download the gift tag template (see above)
Step 3: Print the tags at 100% and cut them out with scissors.
Step 4: Write a message on the back of your photo tag and attach it to your gift.
