Personalized gift ideas are what make the holidays so special! Sometimes the smallest touches can go the farthest. That being said, we’re really digging these homemade gift tags that were created using Instagram photos.

We found this tutorial from one of our favorite blogs and iPhone app creators — A Beautiful Mess. They’re super easy, and inexpensive to create! They may just be that extra something you’ve been looking to add this holiday.

Step One: Use a photo app like A Beautiful Mess to add ‘To:’ and ‘From:’ to your favorite cell phone photos. Use photos that naturally have some white space or use your app to create white areas for writing before you add the words.

Step Two: Print your tags at home using label or sticker paper. You can find it at any office supply store! We printed ours on Canon’s MG7120. It’s our go-to for the fun, smaller projects.
