Photo Gift Tags
Been wrapping up a storm here. You?
When it comes to wrapping presents I find most people are in one of two camps: the LOVE it or HATE it camp. Not many people out there would say "Yeah, it's okay...."
So----which one are you? Do you LOVE it or HATE it?
I am a proud member of the emphatically LOVE it camp.
(for those in the LOVE IT camp~ don't you love the sweater wrap? A buck. From Target. Sigh.)
I love adding yarns, ribbons, pompoms, curlies, and even little gifts on top. I love using baskets and fabric and pretty boxes. I have been known to wrap a present over and over again with ribbon just because I can.
And THIS year, I got the BRILLIANT (ifIdosaysomyself) idea of using photos instead of GIFT TAGS.
It requires no handwriting (with the added plus that the non-readers can help pass out gifts without coming to ask who it is for!), looks fabulous and adds a whole new dimension of fun!
And because I am ridiculous in the amount of picture taking I do, I had EVERYONE on our list covered!
Some were funny, some were ridiculous, and some were just plain sweet. I know, in the case of the Grandparents at least, they might appreciate the photos as much as the gift!
You can cut them into shapes and back them with coordinated paper or, for the extra speedy~ just cut the photo into a tag shape and punch a hole!
Tomorrow I will share a few pre-Christmas glimpses from around home....but for now, I have fudge to make (Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without it!). And cheesecake. And chocolate covered pretzels. And a hat. And a few other things for which I have no links.... ;-)
