Looking for a something fun to give your Valentine?  Who wouldn't like this cute Valentine gumball  machine?  Last week I showed how to make subway art with PicMonkey (Go here for that tutorial) so today I have a another PicMonkey tutorial on how to make labels.  You can make these labels for Valentine's Day, but don't stop there!  You can make labels for everything and every occasion with PicMonkey!

I love PicMonkey because it's really easy and fun to use.  Best of all it's free!  I use PicMonkey for editing pictures but you can do so much more with it like making your own printables.  I've seen these cute little Valentine gumball machines all over Pinterest and used PicMonkey to make my own tags.

Start by going to PicMonkey.  It's free!

Click "design."

Select the butterfly in the menu on the left side to choose an overlay.
Choose any shape you want your label to be.

You can also change the color.  I used two overlays, one on top of the other.

Now select "Tt" for text and type what you want on the label.
You can also select the font you want to use.

I also used overlays to add some circles to look like gumballs.  I changed the size to make the circles smaller and changed the color.  Right click on the circle and selected "duplicate overlay" from the pop up menu to make lots of circles that are the same size.  Change the color of them too.

Then select "crop" on the menu bar and crop the tag.  It will be too big, so resize it to something smaller. Save it as a .jpg or .png file (your choice).  Then open the picture file in a word document and print them out.

You're welcome to use my tags if you want.
But be sure to visit PicMonkey to see what creative things you can make!

PicMonkey is a great place to get creative because there are so many things you can do with it besides editing photos.  If you've never used PicMonkey before, I hope you'll give it a try.

  17. Thanks for this great idea, Bonnie! I love PicMonkey too! This may be a stupid question but how do you make the labels small and not "picture-sized". Do you use the pixel size and not the traditional picture sizes before you download?

    1. You can resize a picture or image in PicMonkey. Just use the menu on the left side. Go all the way to the bottom and click on the "Resize" button.
