When I was a kid, my sister used to make me wrap the gifts she would give to me!
She watched over me so I wouldn’t peek inside the boxes.
Let’s just say her wrapping skills resembled a crumpled bag of garbage!
I was only too happy to help – and made my gifts from her extra fabulous – with yards of curled ribbons and bows.
The pretty packaging is half the fun.
How to Make Personalized Gift Tags
1) Gather your favorite scrapbook paper and stamps. I am going with a bling theme this year.
2) Cut your gift tags making sure they are big enough for your stamps to fit – I love this circle cutter.
3) Stamp onto the cut out shape. I like using stamps that have an empty center so I can stamp my family’s initials inside. This stamp set comes with 10 stamps and 3 colors of ink.
4) Wrap up your gifts with the same scrapbook paper. Get creative by cutting strips from different papers and adding it to your packages.
5) Add your tags and maybe, just maybe, your kids will ooh and ahh the pretty gifts before they rip them open in a frenzy.
