How to Create Ho-Ho-Holiday Gift Labels

There's no better time like the holidays to show how much you appreciate those who make life better. And, sometimes the most thoughtful gifts are the ones you make yourself. Whether you're whipping up a batch of homemade cookies for your neighbor, putting together a gift in a jar for a friend, or even repackaging some play dough for the kiddos, these holiday labels can add a fun, personal touch to every gift.

Create your labels

Open the label design template on Avery Design & Print.

With the Sheet Navigator found on the right, you can add a holiday message that will be applied to all your labels at once. Make sure the tab is set to Edit All. (If you wish to personalize individual labels, you'll just need to click the Edit One tab, then enter your custom text for each label.)

Add your text. Since these labels will be added to tins of play dough, we entered "Ho Ho Dough." We also changed the font to "Shadows Into Light Two," which you'll find in the text menu on the left.
HoHoTextMenu
 
Want to add more text? Click Add Text Box and a brand new text box will appear in your design.
HoHoNewTextBox
Use the anchors (those round white bubbles) around your text box to resize the box. To move the text box, click the dotted line so it becomes a solid line. Your cursor will turn into a four-headed arrow. Click the text box, hold down your mouse key, and position the text box where you wish.
 
Enter your text into the new text box. Use the text box menu on the left to change the font, size or color or your text.
