I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for homemade gifts and wrapping. And when you add a minimalistic gift tag to it, you’ve won me over.
I created these gift tags for myself as I’m wrapping presents for family. Hint hint, they are photographs in picture frames. I mean, I am a photographer, so ya know that’s what I do.
I wish I could write beautifully like this, but I can’t. So I rely on good ‘ol photoshop fonts.
If you ant to take it a step further, you can make your own wrapping paper.
All you need is kraft packing paper (you can buy it at Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, or any office store), cookie cutter of choice, black sharpie marker (or colored sharpies), and colored pencils.
Step one, lay out the wrapping paper
Step two, trace the Christmas tree all over the paper-enough to cover the gift you are wrapping
Step three, wrap your present
Step four, color your Christmas tree with colored pencils.
Step five, wrap with ribbon or garland and add one of my gift tags
It’s totally up to you on your design. Let your imagination flow. I encourage you to change it up a bit and make it your own.
Merry Christmas and enjoy!
