Do you send out Christmas cards? I LOVE to send (and receive!) Christmas cards. My goal is usually to send them by the first of December, but that doesn’t always happen. I also like to hand write all of the addresses. I know, I might be a little crazy, but there’s something about writing all of the addresses out to our friends and family. One of the things that I have done to make that easier was designing these wrap around labels.
I first used them on my brother-and sister-in-law’s wedding invitations a few years ago and have since used them for our Christmas cards each year. Here’s a look at our cards and labels from last year (I used white envelopes to mail our cards, but couldn’t find any of those!)
The labels are 2”x8” and are designed to wrap around an envelope. The return address folds around to the back. To make the card-addressing process quicker, I simply printed these 5 to a sheet on sticker paper, addressed them all, and then cut them out. Then it’s just a matter of sticking them on the card. The nice thing about these is you can have all of your addresses done while you’re waiting for your cards to arrive – if you order them from a site like Shutterfly, which I did last year.
To customize the wrap around labels with your return address, you can edit the label above in Photoshop (or Picnik) and then print them! You can also print these on regular printer paper and attach them to your envelope using a glue stick.

Let’s have another giveaway, shall we? If you’d like your own sheet of customized wrap around labels like the ones pictured above, only with your return address added, leave a comment letting me know your favorite Christmas movie/TV show! The winners will receive a .pdf file of the labels to print as they wish– not a printed sheet. I will use random.org to choose 5 winners! The giveaway ends Saturday night and 9pm (Central time).
**Remember, these printables are free for personal use only!**
