Did you know you can use clip art to make Christmas gift tags?
Let me show you how!
I decided to use Word to create my tags.
First I measured the size of my tag punch.
Then I created a table with cells that were slightly larger than the size of the tag my punch would make.
Next, I began inserting the clip art images, re-sizing them to fit in the cells, and typed To and From.
Once I had a series of tags I liked, I copied and pasted the images into new cells.
Aren’t those vintage Santas cute?
Before I printed my tags, I removed the lines so that they wouldn’t show after I punched the tags.
I printed the tags on cardstock so that they’d hold up better on the gifts.
Now, flip the punch over so you can see how the image lines up on the tag shape and punch out the tags, one by one.
Depending which way you hold the punch you can make your tags face different ways.
Either way, these clip art tags are cute, cute, CUTE!
To finish off the tags, punch a hole in the center of the angled end, add some ribbon and you have a beautiful tag ready for all your gifts!
