How to Make Photo Gift Tags

Make your holiday gift tags special by putting your or your children's photo on every one. This is a great project that puts that personal touch to your gifts. Make all your family and friends jealous that they didn't think of it first. This is an easy and quick project to make if you know how to duplicate photos on your computer. Once you've made one, though, you'll be a pro.


How to Make Photo Gift Tags

Step 1

Select the photo you want to use and shrink it down to 2 inches by 2 inches. Make as many copies as you want to make gift tags.

Step 2

Cut card stock into 3 inch by 4 inch sections for the top piece and 2 3/4 inch by 3 3/4 inch sections for the bottom. Make as many sets as you are making tags.

Step 3

Cut a 1 3/4 inch by 1 3/4 inch hole in the top piece 1/2 inch from the left side. Cover the top with gift wrap so it is about 1/2 larger than the card stock. Center the card stock on the paper and glue on. Use a craft knife and cut the opening out by starting at the center and cutting toward the corners on and angle. Bend the paper in and glue all the edges of the paper to the back of the card stock.

Step 4

Center the photo over the opening and glue around the edges. Make sure your photo is facing through the opening. Glue the bottom piece of card stock onto the top enclosing the photo and the edges of the paper.

Step 5

Punch a hole in the 1/2 inch you left on the top of the tag next to the picture. Pull a piece of ribbon through the hole and tie. Use the ribbon loop to attach to your gift.
