Every year I love to wrap my Christmas presents with a unique, and hand made theme. Most years I have lots of ideas and it's hard to finally pick one. This year for some reason I was stumped. It may have had something to do with the fact that I hadn't bought any of my Christmas presents until last weekend. Finally I came up with a simple idea I could make pretty quickly and get everyone's presents wrapped.
I love gifts wrapped in brown craft paper and I already had some of that at home. So I decided I would make my gift tags. I found this great flannel in the remnants bin at my fabric store for about $3. Picked up some green ribbon and used white felt that I had in my scrap bin at home to write the names on.
I made a simple pattern and used heat bond to give them a little stiffness.
Most of my presents will be going in a suitcase and on a plane, so hopefully they don't get too crushed in transit. At least there's proof here that they started out crisp, clean and super cute.
I love giving gifts and I really love adding a hand made touch to them. It just makes it more special. Merry Christmas!
