Note: I have to post a few more times before I can insert pictures.  Sorry for the links.

I love wrapping presents and it might be my favorite thing about the holidays.  This year I made everyone personalized gift tags that were super easy and super simple.

I took a blank tag outline and modified it with photoshop to add the names, pictures, etc.  After I printed it out I glued it to posterboard to keep it from curling.  This also made it more sturdy.

Here's the blank tag and an example of one of the images I used:

In a not so related item I'm having a White Elephant Party this weekend and decided I would use paper white elephants to write the numbers on.  I had to modify a picture of a cookie cutter I found on google to get the shape.  I'd share it too if I hadn't already deleted it from my computer.

Thanks for checking my post out.   Grin

I actually kept a clothing tag with this shape to use specifically as a template for  Christmas gift tags - so THANKS for posting the template.  I love the pug one and I have a friend it would be perfect for.  Mind if I use it?

those are awesome! i just got photo shop and have no idea how to use it! lol. i'm jealous of you PS skills!
here are the ones i made... more low-tech. i took scrapbooking paper, the sturdy kind... and cut it up and then took a star hole punch for the hole. i got some green ribbon and some polymer clay and some clay "cookie"cutters in the shapes of hands and angels.

the back of the paper is chocolate brown and i've written the names with gold paint pen on that side. they can use the angel and hand as a ornament next year =)

I definitely used the template and the idea of animals in outfits.... I decided one cat will be Santa in the tags, and the other will be a reindeer. Presenting, the Santa Patches gift tag:

And here's Reindeer Puddy:

(Both are just in Paint, because I'm lazy).
