Just a little something to help with your weekend wrapping

Taggers

And no, I’m not talking about personalized lessons from LL Cool J, though wouldn’t THAT be a giveaway?

No, I’m talking about gift tags. I did some major wrapping last night, but first had to design a quick and simple tagger for my packages. (I don’t use bows on my gifts. Just tags. It’s… cleaner somehow.)

Anyhoo, these couldn’t be easier. Just print and trim.

Voila

If you don’t like the colors, you can open the PDF in Photoshop Elements or Photoshop  (File > Open), and change the color quite easily.

Enjoy!

    Thanks Cathy! These are perfect! I also only use tags for most of our gifts- I feel like it is so wasteful to add ribbons and bows that just add to the huge pile of garbage on Christmas day.
    Happy Christmas to you and yours!

    Thanks Cathy,
    That’s one thing I won’t have to spend time designing this year – I know it doesn’t take that long, but at this point, time is of the essence. Your the best!

    I never use bows either, but not because of looks. When I first married we ALWAYS had to go somewhere for Christmas, usually several somewheres. The bows always were squashed! So now I leave them off and have a cute tag. For years I would print a business card with a picture of our daughter and “To” & “From”. Then they just come apart at the perfs. No cutting!

    Just what I needed to finish up my packages. Since we travel for Christmas, I never use ribbons – love using just tags!! Thank you for sharing.

    These are wonderful–thanks–my gifts are all under the tree with no tags–if anyone moves them around I won’t know how they go to–better go print those tags now!!

    Thanks for sharing. Before I had kids, my packages were all nice and neat with handmade bows. Now I quickly wrap everything and write their names on the package. But now with your wonderful tags I don’t have to this year! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    You can’t believe how helpful these are! I was just thinking that I am running out of time and will not be able to make tags this year. I am just too far behind. These? I can do! Thanks!

    Thank You Thank You Thank You! I so needed gift tags and did not want to go to the store – and guess what, they match the red, green and white wrapping paper I wrapped every gift in this year. Merry Christmas!

    I have a quick question … what type of paper did you print those on? I really like the texture of that.

    Cathy, thanks for the tags! Per usual, as I start my wrapping I can’t find last years tags. On the other hand, there may not be any from last year, cause often times I just write the recipient’s name on the bottom of the gift!!

    Thanks so much for the tags! My Christmas wrapping had come to a halt because of my lack of tags – what a lucky coincidence πŸ˜‰

    Thanks, Cathy! These are great! They came just in time for my gift wrapping night – printed them on sticker paper and made my husband cut them out with pinking scissors! So cute! I even used red for one child and green for the other. I’m obviously enjoying this one small victory this season since I have 2 days to finish everything else!
