As I sit here on my porch it is 65 degrees today in VA! having grown up in New York State, I'm use to having frozen ice hanging from the barnroof, snow blanketing the winter wheat FIELDS and plenty of hot cocoa in my cup. But, no, today does not remind me of that. But MY "To do" list sure does!
ON MY LIST IS "WRAP GIFTS". i LOVE TO ADD A PERSONAL TOUCH TO EACH ONE. SO tODAY i'M GOING TO SHARE HOW i DO THAT WITH STEP BY STEP PICTURES OF PHOTO GIFT TAGS! i LOVE THESE LITTLE THINGS.
yOU WILL NEED : pHOTOS sCISSORS a PENCIL a HOLE PUNCH i USED WALLET SIZED PICTURES AND 3X5'S. tHE SMALL ONES ARE PERFECT FOR LITTLE GIFTS AND THE 3X5S ARE NICE FOR "SHIRT BOX" SIZED GIFTS.
nOW, i JUST FREE HANDED A RIDGED EDGE AT THE TOP OF THE PICTURE. iT JUST GIVES ME AN IDEA ABOUT WHERE i NEED TO CUT.
nOW, HOLD YOUR TRACING UP TO THE LIGHT AND YOU WILL SEE WHERE IT WILL BE ON YOUR PHOTO. wILL IT CUT OFF THEIR HEADS OR SHOULDERS OR ANYTHING IMPORTANT IN THE IMAGE? iF SO, THEN JUST RE-ADJUST YOUR TRACE.
wHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED CUTTING THE SHELL CURVES OUT, THEN SLIDE THE IMAGE UNDER YOUR HOLE PUNCH AND PRESS FIRMLY. iF YOU DON'T, YOU MIGHT ONLY CUT PARTWAY THROUGH. tHIS WILL BE WHERE YOUR RIBBON RUNS THROUGH.
tHERE YOU GO! bEAUTIFUL TAGS THAT ALSO BECOME A GIFT. aFTER cHRISTMAS THEY CAN BE PUT AWAY WITH THE CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS AND HUNG ON THE TREE NEXT YEAR SO BE SURE TO PUT THE YEAR ON THE BACK OF THE TAGS.
I'm a Pastor's wife and Mother. I care about what is important in life, marriage and family. Time has a way of highlighting the valuable things in our minutes and hours, people. I love photography because it brings all of these things together. For 18 years I have been working the craft of photography.
"Holly did a beautiful job photographing our wedding . Not only were the pictures fantastic, but so was her presence. She really becomes part of the whole day and not just the photographer. It was so wonderful to have someone so sweet to spend our special day with. Our package included a digitally created album with pictures of our own selection. When we got the album tonight we were amazed. It was absolutely beautiful and brought my husband and I right back to our special day. I not only recommend her for her terrific work, but also for her terrific personality! :)" Linsey
