Buying gifts can be fun but packaging, for me, is the really fun part! I've gathered up my supplies and am going with a traditional red and green color scheme. Some of these supplies were purchased at the local craft store while some were procured from different independent shops. I've linked to the online shops below each of the photos.
letterpress wooden gift tags via in haus press; mini bag tags from local craft shop (these were too cute to pass up!)
card stock paper, large sequins, kraft paper in red and oatmeal, and mini clothes pins from local craft shop; paper doilies via packagery
variety of garland, twine, candy stripe ribbon, and burlap via carmelos; thin rope via local craft shop
bunting stamp via olive manna; decorative scrap booking paper in stripes and polka dots and scallop punch found at local craft shop
ink pad, elastic and wire gold ribbon, tracing paper found at local craft shop; wooden rods found at grocery store
japanese making tape (christmas themed) via ginko papers; owl letterpress tags via elf design & letterpress, gold star toppers and large sequins found at local craft shop
Well, it looks like I have lots of work to do. I better get to it!
