Here is another simple way to add a personal touch to the gifts you give your friends and family. It really doesn’t even need a tutorial.
While in India I really cleaned out when it came to buying gifts for people. There were so many beautiful things and everything is quite inexpensive. However when I came home I realized that I would be needing to mail most of the items I purchased as all my loved ones sadly do not live in the same place as me. I did not want to just put the gifts in a box and ship them off. I thought it would be nice to attach a card with a little explanation as to why I thought such and such trinkette was perfect for them.
Enter my opportunity to use all those photos I took for something other than sitting on my computer. I purchased premade blank cards and sized each picture to fit on the card. Simple. My favorite was when I had purchased tea for a few friends and was able to give them a card with the tea plantations of Munnar on the front. It was nice to be able to show that this was the actual place I purchased the tea for them.

What a great idea to turn your photos into cards! I love the idea of choosing a photo that connects to the gift, as well. Just lovely.

Thanks Lauren! It was fun to pick a picture I thought each person would enjoy.

I love the picture of the hills that came with my tea. 🙂 Thank you so much!
