Now I just need to get my gifts wrapped. Which brings me to today! Today's guest post comes from my friend Mandi. She is one of the kindest bloggers I know! I found her blog quite sometime ago and love following because she has uber chic modern style and always introduces me to something new and hip. Seriously, most of my bookmarks came from her blog list. She's also the talent behind the new layout and design of my blog. I could not love it more and cannot thank her enough. Check out her wrapping skills!
Hello lovelies! Let's talk tags for a minute. They are the sweet figurines on the top of a cake, the cherry on the sundae, the star on top of the tree...pretty much all things good. And they incorporate type, which just makes me even happier! It's like there are two cherries on my sundae and suddenly I can share with my husband. Because if there is just one, I don't know. I really like cherries.
Since these are so very very important to your gift, I thought I would round up a few of my favorites from around the web.
Gorgeous, right? Don't you think your gifts deserve such pretty things? I do! And since I'm a lover of all things free and pretty, I thought I'd have fun adding a set into the mix as well.
holiday tag! Simple, right? Simple is quite possibly my favorite word ever, but a black and white tag might be a bit too minimalist for even me. With a few on hand supplies, you can dress these up easily.
I printed the sheet out on kraft paper (oh how I love kraft-automatically makes them better) and cut them all out. Now, you see those tags with just to: on them? Well, that's a little game for you to play Christmas morning! On each tag, draw something that represents the person you're giving the gift to (headphones for my brother, a guitar for my husband) so everyone gets to figure out which present goes to which person. If we had more than two people in our house, we'd be all over that, but since it's just husband and I, I added some regular tags too.
Xyron that I got at Wal-Mart for about $8. These are great to make your own stickers, and makes gifting quick and easy! I love how the circle fits right on the Ikea napkin. Pretty napkins are great and cheap wrapping paper for small items.
For the second photo I pinned the tag onto the napkin, giving it a sweeter side. You could pin a special ornament along with it. Lastly, I took something I always have on hand, white crepe paper, and hot glued it to the back of the tag, pleating as I went along. You could add some silver glitter to the outside of the circle or along the edge of the crepe paper.
I hope these ideas help you in your gifting journey this week. Thanks Sarah for all this great inspiration!
