After all the birthday mayhem (my three-year-old's birthday is the day after my twins' birthday) at our house last October, I decided I needed to get a bit more organized in the wrapping, packaging, and gift tap department. I love making gifts looks extra special, but with three birthdays in two days, wrapping always seems to take a backseat to everything else.
I started the day after the birthday bashes and got busy making gift tags. I wanted to make tons, so I could just pull one out at any given time to wrap up a special gift. I also stocked up on solid wrapping paper colors (I love brown craft paper) and cute toppers. I wanted everything ready to go, so wrapping a cute gift would be quick and easy! I took a bunch of my scrapbook paper scraps (perfect project them) and started mixing and matching. It was so much fun to come up with different combinations!
*scrapbook paper (scraps work great)
*Cricut & Preserves Cartridge
*alphabet stamp set
*Cut tags (2 sizes, 1/4" in difference) using Cricut Preserves Cartridge
*Distress edges of tags with distressing ink
*Stamp To: and From: on the tags
*Layer tags and adhere
Have fun with the tags- mix and match whatever scraps you have. I didn't buy a single piece of new paper for this project. I love how using what you have can produce such fun and unexpected results! And the fun just continues when you mix and match ribbons and toppers with the tags.
P.S. These tags would be a great addition to the DIY gift boxes I posted about back in December.Thanks for stopping by! I hope you found a little something worth your time.
