DIY Holiday Gift Wrapping & Tags

This weekend I hope to get started on my holiday gift wrapping.  I always love using original handmade holiday gift tags.  Last year, I used these holiday tags and of course I have the gift tags I made with my Martha loot.

Paper Craft


Anna from EcoSalon sent these to me just the other day and I loved them.  Simple and easy……my favorite kind of paper craft project.

I love the look of an aged tea stained tag.  Must be why I also love kraft paper. And why I never thought of using old story books is beyond me BRILLIANT! ……..ones that have already been used and abused of course

I was JUST watching a video on how to make these adorable yarn pompoms.  I’ll post it below.

Do we ever get tired of bakers twine? ……………… I didn’t think so.  Add a vintage button and you have a well dressed gift.
