I bought these photo gift labels earlier this year and forgot about them! I had seen other bloggers talk about how great they were and ordered a set using our family Christmas photo from last year.
Here is the great thing- you use them instead of using a card! They just stick right to the package and you are done! Erin Condren (who isn't paying me in any way for this message) has a bunch of different designs, even some without a photo.
Knowing ours would be red, white and black, I bought a couple of generic rolls of gift wrapping in these colors. It makes it so easy to have a pretty gift ready to go.
I recently used one at a baby shower and the guests loved them. They passed the wrapping paper around, instead of the gift!
If you like to play around with digital scrapbooking, these would be simple to make. Just upload a photo and text of your choice into the shipping label template in Microsoft Word. Print out on shipping labels from your local office supply store and you have a low cost version!
