DIY Wrapping Paper Bunting

Monday, November 18th, 2013

I love this project because not only is it fun for the “holly day” season (ha!) but the same supplies and process can be used to make bunting for any festive occasion, birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, kids rooms, and no sewing!

This festive slogan was made with cardboard from cereal boxes, wrapping paper, and glitter cardstock, and it’s easy enough for kids to help too. Details on how to make your own version below!

Printable Holiday Gift Tags

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

I adored my Nana may she rest in peace, but my Dad’s mom who’s been gone these many years did not put any effort whatsoever into wrapping Christmas presents for her children and grandchildren. It was a seasonal joke in our family, we’d get gifts and only the front, I’m not kidding, only the front of the box was wrapped, and she laughed about it and made us all laugh too. It was one of the many things we found so endearing about her, so every year when Matt and I are up until midnight on Christmas Eve wrapping what “Santa” brought, I laugh to this day and say to him maybe we should just be more like my Nana.

However, when it comes to gifts for friends or extended family members, I do like to make an effort, if only to attach a sprig of berries to twill ribbon or tuck an evergreen clipping under a satin bow. Gift tags are a must at family gatherings and holiday get-togethers so I created a few of my own with Photoshop this year and I’m happy to share them with you!
