Pleased to be hopping with the Go-to Gals today for a small hop in honor of Holiday Cards & More Vol. 7, the newest special issue from Paper Crafts magazine.
If you haven’t seen the issue yet, it’s this awesome issue filled (well, jam-packed) with holiday cards, holiday tags, gift wrappings and other DIY-paper crafty ideas. You’ll be able to find it on newstands and online.
So for today’s hop, we are paying tribute to the issue’s photo card section. Only instead of making a card with a photo, we are making something else.
So… meet my project for the hop.
I was totally inspired by the photo card I made for the issue, which just happens to feature a picture of my dog, Marley. (Page 9… hee! I’m so proud.)
I decided to whip out some photo gift tags with a picture of him.
It’s something my family and friends would get a kick out of and instantly know the gift was from me (since said dog is attached to my hip most days.)
I printed the picture for my tags at home. This is just a random picture I had of him. (He has a habit of smiling… lol!)
I opened it up on my computer, selected the print option and chose to print on 8 1/2″ x 11″ photo paper. One of the choices was to print a wallet sized picture. I picked that and chose to print a number of them on the one sheet of paper. Easy, peasy.
Each tag has a different sentiment. I computer-generated the strips on white cardstock and finished them off with some stamped words. (All the words I used are from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Everything and Sweet Christmas stamp sets).
Be sure to check out the blogs of the rest of the Go-to Gals to see their photo-inspired tribute to the issue. ;)
