I love to wrap gifts. With real wrapping paper and tying on real ribbon, curling ribbon, or twine and adding a handmade tag. Last year, I found this darling green stripe paper at Target on clearance and squirreled it away for this year's gifts. And just a few weeks ago, I saw this post over at Zakka Life Crafts and knew I could duplicate the idea for my Christmas gift tags this year. I loved this red retro fabric and am so glad now that I didn't throw away my scraps! I bought a package of mailing tags at my local office supply store, used my Image Tree typewriter stamps to stamp the recipient's name on the tag, cut a piece of my fabric to size with pinking sheers and stapled it to the end of the tag and attached it to the gift. I love the way they turned out. Thanks for the inspiration, Jessica!
Sorry for using your gift as an example, Sarah. Just act surprised when it comes!
