Today I’m going to show you how to Design Your Own Holiday Tags and you don’t need expensive software to do it!! Did you know that Avery Labels has a super easy and fun way to customize your own labels and tags right on their site? No? I didn’t either, but let me tell you it’s going to be life changing for some of you! So many of you guys have asked me over the years, how you can use my frames and other images for labels and tags, and customize them for your own uses. In the past I never had a good answer for you guys, but now I do! Now you can use Avery Design and Print Online and it’s Free and so much fun! You are going to love it! This is another thing that I’m super excited about! I’ve dreamed about a product like this for years and here it is! It’s Avery’s Printable Tags!! You don’t need any fancy expensive cutting machines or die cuts for this, which is why I love it! The Labels come in printable sheets that you just put right into your home computer and print your designs onto them. These are so great to use as Gift Tags, Labels for organizing or for shopkeepers, to customize and use as professional looking price tags for your wares!! Let’s get started with Avery Design and Print and I’ll show you how easy it is to make these! Step 1: Head on over to Avery Design & Print Online. Enter the product number of the tags or labels that you are using and click Go. Step 2: Select the product that you want to work with by clicking on it. Step 3: Select the blank label, since we are going to customize it. And click on “Select and Customize”. (Avery has lots of designs already created for you too, so you might want to check those out as well) Step 4: Now we are in the design screen! Under the images tab, click on “From My Computer”. Step 5: Browse though your folders and select the image that you would like to use. (All of these images are on my blog, in the Christmas category, you are welcome to use them!) Step 6: Size your image to fit the tag by pulling on the corners. Step 7: Click on the Text Tab and then click on “Add Text Box”. Then select the font that you want by clicking on the arrow next to the word “Ariel”. Notice you can also change the size, by clicking on the box with the number 14 on it, and you can change the text color too. Step 8: Type out your message. That’s it for this design! Your design will populate all the tags on the left side when you’re done. Step 9: Now you can create another design for the tags on the right side, by clicking on the top tag on the right, as shown above. This will give you another blank tag to work with. Step 10: When you’re all done with you designs. Click Save and then click Preview and Print. Step 11: Click 2D preview and then click on the green Print Button at the top of the page. Step 12: The browser that I used was Chrome, if you are using a different browser, you may have different print instructions. Either way it’s super easy and only requires a click or two, and then you will have your custom labels! Woohoo! Just perforate your tags and add the strings! Or you can get creative and add ribbons, glitter, Washi Tape, whatever you like! Here are some other fun products from Avery that are perfect for the Holidays! They have labels in all different shapes and sizes, and they even have Gold Foil and Kraft Brown options available as well! If you are making Handmade gifts this your, or making Handmade things to sell, these labels will take your creations to a whole new level. And customizing them will give them that professional look, that will make everything look that much more special!Be sure and check out Avery on Pinterest and on Facebook for even more inspiration!
