I stepped away from the sewing room to work on something Christmassy, anything Christmassy! Decided to start with gift tags. Call it fussy or what you will, but I am not a huge fan of writing the To: and From: on the front of the tag so I wanted to create a tag which would open and this is what happened:
I used a small manila tag and traced it side by side on kraft cardstock. Yes, there probably is some die or machine which would cut a tag this size but sometimes, I simply like to do things the 'old-fashioned' way by tracing and cutting.
Initially, due to time restraints, I told myself to make one and one only, then duplicate that design for the remaining tags but obviously, I had a bit too much fun coming up with different ways to decorate/embellish the same tag!
The gifts are wrapped in simple brown paper bags wrapped with crinkled paper lace.
Simple and completed! Woot!
And here is the give-a-way part! I am going to give, in the spirit of Christmas giving, away this wrapped 'mystery' gift! Leave a comment saying 'hello' on this blog post and I will draw a name on Monday, December 19 so you have until Sunday, December 18 to leave a sweet 'hello' comment on the blog.
Don't forget, if you are a Canadian artist, designer or craftsperson, Gabry Road is giving away a free membership during the month of December. Even if you sell your handmade goodness elsewhere, on other online marketplaces, we'd love to share your handmade goodness on Gabry Road!
Thanks for stoppin' by!
