DIY Gift Tag Tutorial

Thank you all for the sweet compliments on my gift wrap tutorial yesterday! A lot of you asked how I created the gift tag, so I am going to run you through a very simple tutorial…

 Step 1: Find a cute label. You can either purchase a sheet of labels from an Etsy shop, or download a template from Pinterest. I usually prefer Pinterest because most templates are free!

I did a quick search on Pinterest and found these cute {free} templates: 1/2/3/4/5

 *Note: I had my  pink lattice template custom made. Feel free to right click and save it!

Step 2: Upload template into Picnik a photo editing site. You may need to crop out the other labels or white space on the page.

*Note: I have heard great things about PicMonkey and Picasa for free photo editing.

Step 3: Add text to your label. I used GeosansLight font {size 36}.

Step 4: {Optional} Add a watermark by inserting a huge letter in your favorite font, then fading it. I used Henry Morgan Hand font {size 164}, then faded it 75%.

Step 5: Save and Print. To print as a “label size,” select 3.5 x 5 in. prints in the “print options.” 

*Note: the larger the print, the more risk of a grainy/pixelated look

Wanna know another secret? This is how I make all of my tent cards for party food, place cards for assigned seating, and framed signs for parties.

I hope this was helpful.  There is probably a much easier way to make your own labels, so if you have any tips or suggestions, please do tell
