Hi guys! I LOVE giving gifts. Picking out and wrapping up weird, romantic or sentimental gifts for the people I love is one of my favorite things to do. I have so much fun filling up that tree! With that said, I'm not that great at wrapping gifts. I'm messy. I'm not a perfectionist. I can't wrap a picture perfect gift to save my life. Instead, I gravitate toward fun, easy-going wrapping solutions with a handmade touch!
Today we want to share fun and easy way to make personalized gift tags for the holidays. Use your favorite Instagram memories from the year to create these quirky little tags! Since we'll be doing some quick-and-easy photo printing for this project, it felt like another great fit for our Canon USA collaboration.Step One: Use a photo app like #ABeautifulMess to add 'To:' and 'From:' to your favorite cell phone photos. Use photos that naturally have some white space or use your app to create white areas for writing before you add the words. Step Two: Print your tags at home using label or sticker paper. You can find it at any office supply store! We printed ours on Canon's MG7120. It's our go-to for the fun, smaller projects.Step Three: Trim your labels and get ready to have fun wrapping gifts. It's that easy!!
I also used wine corks to stamp my kraft wrapping paper with a little white acrylic paint. This year I've been decorating my plain craft and white wrapping paper with paint and sharpies. Our tree is already beginning to fill with gifts. I can't wait for our family and friends to see these cute little tags we printed with the pups photos. It's getting REAL festive around here. Cheers to messy, personal, happy gift wrap! xo. Elsie
