Different types of Christmas wrapping aranged with photo tags in a photo

A holiday gathering of close friends and family wouldnt be complete without a few trips down memory lane. This year kick off the nostalgia by incorporating childhood photos onto gifts to indicate who the recipient is the goofier, the better! Tie off with decorative ribbon for a spin on the traditional gift tag thats festive, sentimental and sure to evoke a laugh or two.

Choose a photo of a family member or friend and print in black and white onto sticker label sheets. Once printed, cut out keeping a white border, peel back to expose adhesive side and mount onto card stock. Position jumbo circle over the photo center and punch to cut out the tag.

Flip punched tag over and write to and from lines on the back. After your tag has been addressed, punch a small hole at the top to thread ribbon through. Add to boxes wrapped in simple kraft paper and tied with velvet ribbon.
