Are you a Christmas printable lover? If so, then you have a lot to be excited about today.
I am taking part in a Christmas printable tour hosted by Kristen from Ella Claire. At the end of the post are the links to all the blogger’s posts offering a Christmas printable for you to download to decorate your home, embellish gifts and more.
I love free printables, especially gift tags and labels. I have shared many and today I am sharing not one, but a few new ones that I recently made since I could not choose just one to share. :-)
I started out making this Christmas ornament gift tag.

Then I started playing around in Photoshop with colors and filters and turned the design into a chalkboard tag.

I then went to my stash of Christmas wrapping paper and ribbons from TJ Maxx and wrapped up a few boxes to show you how I will use the tags.
For anyone thinking I have started my Christmas shopping, I haven’t. I want you to know I went to my pantry to find boxes to wrap for this post. I wrapped a box of pasta, a box of teabags and a book to get this photo. :-)
One thing about free printables is that you don’t have to use them at face value, you can change them to fit your needs. Depending on your computer printer’s settings, you can print a free printable at various sizes and use them in many different ways, print in color or black and white and use all types of papers as long as you cut the paper to fit your 8 -1/2″ x 11″ printer size.
For instance, I printed the brown tag on adhesive kraft paper . You can buy it online or at the craft store.
The best way to cut the printables into squares, rectangles or any shape with straight sides is with a craft paper trimmer, but I often use scissors to cut out the images into round or detailed shapes. If you own a Silhouette or Cricut the process is automated.
The basic way to use a free printable is to print it out full size or to fit into a frame up to an 8-1/2″ x 11″ size. I sized this to fit a 5 x 7 frame, but you can make it any size your printer settings will print.
Check your printers settings and instruction manual, you may be surprised to find it does quite a bit more than just print images at full-size.

Print out these little square tags and layer onto a piece of scrapbook paper. Punch a hole in the top and tie it onto a bottle of wine or small gift. Write the recipient’s name on the back or on the scrapbook paper.

Use white opaque markers to write on chalkboard tags.
Print the image full size and transfer it to a chalkboard using this transfer method.
If you plan to transfer the image on a chalkboard, use this reverse image to save on black ink.:
And last, but not least, I made these little square tags that you can punch a hole in the top to tie it onto a bottle of wine or small gift. Write the recipent’s name on the back with a red or green pen.
