Snowman Gift Tag Weekend Project

Isn't this just the cutest snowman?  I thought so when I saw him on Pinterest and I had to copy the image because I knew I wanted to somehow use it for gift tags.  I have not made gift tags in a few years and it was just time.  Plus I was out of gift tags.  You can find this snowman by clicking here.  Paste him into your graphic software.  I stretched the bottom down a little bit to make him taller.  There just wasn't enough room for the writing.  Well, I didn't think so. Not at the size I made him.

I took a piece of label paper that measures 8-1/2" x 11" and I set it in the printer.  I set up my page so I had 8 tags on it and I just hit print.

Next I found a stamp set that has the "to" and "from" words in it.  I ended up cutting the image in half because both words were on one stamp.  I cut it in half, trimmed it up a bit and stuck it on the ends of the wooden block.  The set I found the words in was the retired Holiday Woodcuts.  Some sets I just can't seem to let go of and that is one of them!

Ok, once I got the stamp block ready I stamped all the "to's" on each snowman.  Then I stamped the "from" on each one and that was it for stamping.  I suppose if you want to be really lazy you could just use your software program and add the words so they print out all at once.  I opted for the stamping.  It's easy enough and quick enough.  I may print out a few more sheets.  I do have some shopping left to do!

Now if you are going to make these you must remember that they are for personal use only.  You can't make these to sell because the image does not belong to you.  No matter how much you stretch it out.  There are copyright laws you must follow or face the consequences.  I don't know what they are because I don't take other people's images for personal gain.  Wrong is wrong.  If you find the artist and ask that person if you can use their images to make items and sell them.  It's only right.

I have a few more tags on my blog.  You can see them by clicking here.  

So, I'm off to print out one more sheet and stamp on it and call it a night!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
