Gift Tagging

Guess what? I think I'm done with my Christmas shopping. This is a first for me. I usually have it done a week before Christmas, but not three weeks before Christmas. I actually had most of it finished before December 1st.
I knew what I was going to buy and went for it. Some things I purchased from the comfort of my home by shopping on line. This is always scary to me. I get anxious for my items to show up at the door. In fact there are three items currently on a shipping truck right now and are late getting to me. The sellers have assured me not to worry. 

Sunday I had some time on my hands so I decided to wrap some of the presents. I grabbed my dollar store wrapping paper, scissors....
Wait..I do not have any gift tags. 
I was getting frustrated because I was ready to begin the dreaded wrapping. Yes I hate wrapping presents. At this point I was ready to cut little strips of paper for name tags. Then the idea hit me.
I have some card stock paper, a desktop computer and a printer. I’ll just find some templates and print my own. 


It took me all of 10 minutes to search, print and cut. Now I have some cute tags for my gifts. I opt for the larger kind that will hang instead of laying flat on the paper hidden under the bow. 

Bows.... crap, I need bows. 
I found a few smashed to peices in the craft closet. Those will have to do.
I’m pretty sure my little three year old nephew and a six year old neice could care less how a bow looks. 

I like how my homemade tags turned out. The natural look goes well with my choice of wrapping paper. 
Speaking of wrapping paper. I chose some with a cabin like feel to them. The gingham check print is my favorite.
 

Now I can sit back and enjoy the Christmas season without worrying about the rush. We can watch Christmas movies while sipping hot chocolate, take a trip through Christmas lights, attend Christmas gatherings and do some baking. 
Heck, We may go to the mall just to get in other peoples way. Ha.

  2. You are one unique crafty lady. Love the tags. I was never good at buying gifts. It may not be the coolest thing, but this year it is cash in cards and hand delivered (we hope) unless y'all get a snow storm in Gaston County! Then we will send them priority mail! LOL

    The best to you and Nick. Enjoy the relaxed time of 'Being Ready'.

    1. I think so too. But then again I am rather drab and colorless. I like natural.

  4. I haven't had hot chocolate in years, but this year I'm going to make some with milk. My mother always used hot water, might be why I've never had a good taste for it.

    1. My mom would use milk and cocoa the old fashion way. Its a lot better than the packs you add water too but you can add milk to those and they are ok.
