DIY Personalized Holiday Cards and and Gift Tags | DIY PHOTO CARDS

Happy Holidays Friends!
Before our sled takes off, I wanted to share a few last card and gift wrapping ideas from our house to your own. Take a favorite family ( --- or pet --- photos, like we've done)  and add holidays cheer. These are so much fun.

Embellish Gift Wraps with these Gift Tags. If you use heavy, matt, photos, these can be hung on a tree as Christmas Ornaments, too. 

Let's get started:

Take a photo.

These work the best, you can shoot against a white background. This is the first year that we've used Henry, our pup, but, have created these several years with head shots of the kids. I'm sure that you already have a vision in mind, but, you can take full body shots, as well as head shots.

Step 1: Trim photo
Step Two: Embellish as you'd like.
