More adorable gift boxes! Did I tell you I LOVE paper crafts? I guess I better start actually buying and making some Christmas gifts now that I see all these amazing wrapping tutorials. Thank you Pinterest. When I do not waste hours of my time hanging out with you, there are those special moments you inspire me to be a better person….
This fun DIY Santa gift bag is from the Pazzles blog, which is a company that makes a high end scrapbook cutter I love. If you have a Cricut or other cutter, you can have the machine do the cutting and drawing for you. However, if you have not yet purchased a fancy machine to do your cutting for you, you can probably wing this one just fine.
Ha. You thought I was kidding about the potato stamps…Never. Just like preschool but better, you get to play with your food and have fun while wrapping gifts. Let your kids help out, too, if you have them. The more handmade looking, the better, I think.
Learn something new every day… Wired pine stem pipe cleaners. Who knew? Just when you thought you owned everything in the craft store, too. Foiled again. I guess I will be making yet another trip to Joann‘s this week to buy these, since Design Sponge has officially creating my “go to” gift wrapping idea for 2015. Easy but elegant, and clearly handmade, these personalized wreath tags are not your ordinary DIY gift tag.
Leftover fabric scraps and gifts to wrap, too? This DIY gift wrapping idea uses leftover tartan fabric, but you can use anything you have, really. Vintage bowties purchased online or maybe even cheap thrift store bow ties can be used as lovely accents like these. For that matter, you can fashion some of your own from more leftover fabric and all that free time you must have on your hands. Send me pics and a bow tie making when you do, please 🙂
