necessity is the mother of invention & a TUTORIAL

A few days ago, as I was sewing a cowboy costume for my Etsy shop, I began brainstorming ideas for new hang tags for my shop items

I wanted them to be fun as well as informative (providing care instructions and contact information).  They needed to have some spunk, be cheap cost effective, AND (a big and here) be ready to ship TOMORROW (I like to cut things close).  Hmmm...
And then it came to me...
what if I just had them printed as a regular photo?  I knew Target had a fast turnaround time, but upon further investigation I discovered my local Target Photo shop was temporarily out of service - DARN!  
Then I remembered the new Walgreens just down the road.  When I found their website I was pleasantly surprised to discover that when you create a photo account they give you 25 prints for FREE!  It doesn't get any better than that!
So I set to work designing the tags...

and this is how they turned out.  I was so pleased with the result that I made a TUTORIAL.  Really, the possibilities are endless.
