How to Turn an Ordinary Business Card into a Quick, Handy, Stylish Gift Tag

How to Create a Quick Tag

by Altering a Business Card

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial

by Susan Rodriguez, Creative Team Member

Have you ever had your other half call you and tell you in a panic, "Honey we have just been invited out to dinner with my boss"?
Or better yet, it’s your best friend’s birthday and you completely forgot? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a quick tag handy to stick on a present?

In this tutorial we will be creating tags using printable business cards to stick on those last-minute gifts. I used Avery 8869 business cards for this project.

  • Create an image the size of your business card. Here is my image

  • I used Microsoft Word to create my business card tag.
  • Make sure you follow the instructions on your package when printing them out.
  • Once complete your word document should look something like this.

  • Print them out, tear them out and whalla you have your ready made tags.
  • You can also add some diamond glaze or glossy accents to poop out your letters even more.
  • ere is my completed projected with a little something I gave myself.
