In the past several years, I have been wanting to make DIY monogrammed gift tags, but have never gotten around to creating them. Until last night. I got my butt over to Michael's to get some good stock paper and a hole puncher (I know, I can't believe I didn't already own one) and got to work. When it was all said and done, Steve and I were able to clear off most of the huge amount of Christmas bootie that had been accumulating on our dinner table. I couldn't be happier with the results!
Now, I know what you're thinking. Isn't my to-do list long enough without adding more to it? But I'm telling ya, these DIY monogrammed gift tags will add that extra oomph that your wrapped presents need. And really, it didn't take me long at all. Trust me, time is a hot commodity around my house so you know I wouldn't spend too much time on it if I didn't think it was worth it.
Here's what I did in a nutshell. I went to Martha Stewart's website (because she is THE Domestic Goddess) and used her already created template for the ornament shape. Then I imported the template into Photoshop to add the monogram part and to change the color of the outline of the ornament. Finally, I saved it as a .pdf and printed.
I realize that not everyone has Photoshop, so as an itty-bitty Christmas gift to you all, I've created new templates with color so that you can create your own monogrammed gift tags easily! Right-click on the links below to save these images to your desktop and then insert them into a Microsoft Word document. Then to add the monogram part, just add a text box on top of the ornaments and you're all set!
