It is starting to feel a lot like Christmas, don’t you think? Have you bought your gifts yet? And, if so, have you started the fun of wrapping them into small pieces of art? The perfect topping of a beautifully wrapped present is a homemade gift tag!
I love Christmas and, I have to admit, I really love both giving and receiving Christmas gifts. Sometimes, when I have a little too much to do at work, I don’t have time to give all the wrapping that little extra to make them small pieces of art, but when I have the time I love to go all in.
One thing that I have realized is an ordinary wrapping can be so much more with a homemade gift tag. And in the end the paper is thrown away but perhaps the gift tag stays in the collection of the receiver.
The tags can be traditional with a Christmas theme but it can also be so much more, perhaps coordinated with the gift it self to give a hint of what is waiting inside the package. Or it can be just a piece of art, wonderful to make and wonderful to keepsake.
