If you’re like me, you’ve got a bazillion instagram images that are meaningful and pretty but no plan to use them. I thought it would be a cute idea for the holidays to make them into tags for gifts. You could use festive pictures (snow, decorated trees, stockings hung) from this year or years past for more generic holiday gifts, or personal family pictures for friends and family. For a special gift you could even use an instagram you have of the person you’re giving a gift to! So many possibilities.

First you need to select and find a company to print your photos. I used Pinstagram, but there are loads of other options. I printed a whole bunch of our family, festive scenes, and close friends I might be giving gifts to. I wanted a lot of options.
Then you need to make them into tags. The easiest way is a tag whole punch (pretty brilliant thing, huh!). I spotted one at my local craft store but you can find one on amazon for $10 here.
