DIY Gift Tags from Kids' Art – Satsuma Designs
Is your current collection of holiday gift tags ho-ho-humdrum? Mine too. My collection amounts to a hodge podge of leftovers from at least three Christmases. I've had enough. This year when we travel to Grandma's house we intend to delight the family with some home made, yet high quality (!) DIY gift tags from kids art hanging from festively wrapped gifts to show our love. Not that gifts are required for that! I'm about to walk you through an easy tutorial for DIY gift tags from kids' art made using the free website, PicMonkey. Most of you have used it and like me, love it, but for the uninitiated, here's an easy step-by-step guide to creating DIY gift tags from kids' artwork. First you'll need to get your little Vans Gogh-ing making some great seasonal art. It doesn't have to be seasonal, but it's fun to share a little holiday spirit through your gift tag. When you have the kiddos' artwork it's time to get it into digital format. You can either scan it and save the file as a .jpg or take a photo with your phone or camera and save it to your computer and leave it in a file you can find later to insert into PicMonkey.

Now we'll make the DIY Gift Tags from Kids' Art

Visit PicMonkey and click Design (top bar). This will open a 2000x2000 pixel blank document. Click Crop on the left hand Tool Bar and size down to an approximate gift tag size by dragging the box and click Apply. (see below) picmonkey step 1 open and crop Click the Overlays icon from Tool Bar at left. It's the solid butterfly icon.
