How to Make Unusual Christmas Gift Tags


Using only a few craft supplies and a little imagination, you can create a personalized gift tag that is as unique as the person receiving the gift. This craft will allow you to create unusual gift tags using photo identification.

Step 1

Take a close-up photo of each person for whom you will create gift tags.

Step 2

Reduce the size of each photo to "stamp", "sticker", or "index" size and print them out.

Step 3

Using the zig-zag scissors, cut out strips of scrapbook paper. Strips should be at least 2 by 4 inches.

Step 4

Use scrap paper and embellishments to decorate around the photo.

Step 5

Leave a small space near the bottom of the tag in effort to indicate who the gift is from. Use a fine-point marker to write on the tag.
