Check out some of my 2013 holiday gift tags in action! This is how I did my Christmas wrapping this year:

My Christmas 2013 gift tags in action

I used brown paper, red and blue printed ribbon, and my 2013 gift tags printed on matte photo paper.

I used PhotoLast Professional Matte Photo Paper which I randomly came across a few years ago in Office Warehouse:


I cannot rave enough about this paper. It’s priced reasonably (P250~? Maybe less) and the quality is amayyyyyzing. I print on it using an inkjet printer and the colors always come out so vivid, crisp, and saturated, regardless of whether I’m using an photo printer (6 inks) or my parents’ office-quality printer (4 inks). I used to make button pins for my now-defunct Etsy shop and this is the paper I printed my graphics on. If you’re near an Office Warehouse, it’s worth checking out (if they still have it– I bought this pack years ago). You won’t be sorry. And this is not a sponsored post; I really just think it’s an inexpensive and good quality photo paper πŸ™‚

You don’t even have to wrap your gift– just use festive gift tags and some Christmas string or ribbon and you’re done!


I’m tickled pink (hoohoohaha! *monkey sounds*) when people actually use my stuff in real life– my gift tags, my monthly calendars, and other downloadables. I’m working hard to get my stuff out into the real, physical world, beyond just digital illustrations you see on the other side of your screens. I’m making it happen in 2014. Huzzah! Thank you and happy holidays! πŸ™‚

I’m hoping to get one more post in before the new year. Check back soon? There’ll be a giveaway, I hear πŸ˜›
