Make your kids a personalized Bag Tag in Picmonkey for their school backpack or lunchbox. I’m going to show you just how to do it.PicMonkey is a free online software. It’s so easy and fun. Matthew will be starting kindergarten this year he wanted me to make a bag tag for his PackIt lunch box. We love PackIt lunch box’s because there is no need for an ice pack. You just freeze the lunch box and it keep’s everything cold for hours. I also love the PackIt shopping bag for when I go to Costco or the grocery to put meat and frozen things in while they are in the car.
Matthew is full on into superhero’s right now so I Googled to find a digital scrapbook paper for superhero’s and found this Batman looking paper from Jazzy Scraps on Delighted. If you have not been on Delighted you should check it out, it’s full of great shops and is like Etsy.
How to make a personalized bag tag in PicMonkey
Step 2: Crop a portion of the batman paper in a rectangle shape (don’t worry about the exact size now. You will want to be careful of where you crop it so you don’t cut off half a logo if you can prevent it. Don’t worry if you don’t get it right the first time you can move and change the crop.
Then go to resize and change the size of your crop to a 3×5 which in PicMonkey is 2500×1500 (pixels) Now don’t ask me how to convert inches to pixels but you can check out this handy dandy guide from the Monkey!
Step 3: Add a shape. I just used a simple geometric circle but use any shape you prefer. If you have another picture you want to overlay like the shape of a black bat you can if you have the upgraded PicMonkey account and use the Your Own button.
- in the box that auto pops up drag the circle in the color box all over until you find the color you want
- If you want a color from your background, which I did, you click in the side box as the below picture shows. A medicine dropper appears and you put it over the color in the picture you want to copy and click on it
- If you have a hex code number for the color you want to use then you can type it in at the top right hex code box provided
