We’re at the end of November and in one of my favorite weeks out of the entire year. Thanksgiving is on Thursday so that means baking until my little heart’s content, time with family and the beginning of the Christmas season. I started my Christmas shopping this month and I’ll slowly be wrapping each gift with an added personal touch with stamped holiday gift tags!
I’ve always had a love for gift wrapping. Turn up some Christmas music, grab your coffees and you’ve got a very therapeutic afternoon! I am aware that some of you don’t get the warm fuzzy feelings like I do when you think of the gifts you have to wrap, but if you don’t have a love affair of wrapping but still want a personal touch, I’ve for an easy project for ya!
DIY Stamped Holiday Gift Tags
Those sticky gift tags are convenient but have never been my first choice in wrapping. I love the extra special touch a handmade tag adds to the gift. I’ve made all different kinds over the years but these stamped tags are by far the easiest and quickest!
While cruising Hobby Lobby a couple weeks ago I came across a couple holiday stamps that instantly inspired me. At 40% off, I had to bring them home with me. How cute is that vintage car with a tree atop?
With a simple ink pad, premade cardstock tags and satin ribbon, you’ve got the perfect little tag!
One of the stamps I found was this pretty to and from. They had a few to choose from but I really loved the script of this particular one.
Once the ink has dried (just an hour or so for safe measure) string some ribbon through the pre-cut hole and attach it to your gift.
I attached a clipping of greenery and a fun little bell as a finishing touch.
If you can work a rubber stamp you can makes these tags! I later found a Merry Christmas stamp in a pretty script font that I can’t wait use on my next gifts. You can store the stamps with your wrapping supplies and use them year after year! Do you have anything special that you like to do when wrapping gifts?
I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!
