Challenge #9

DIY Tags & Gift Wrap

Make gifts even more special by adding a handmade touch. One of my favorite ways to stretch my gift-giving dollar is to spend the extra time putting gifts into pretty packaging. By spending the time to create handmade packaging (or tags/embellishments) your recipient knows that you went the extra mile — just for them.

As a paper-crafter, I tend to have an overabundance of crafty supplies sitting around. Scrapbook and card embellishments are perfect for adding just a little extra touch.

For this challenge: Create some of your own DIY packaging, tags, or other gift wrapping embellishments. Break out the washi tape, the mists, the alphabet stickers, the stamps and the ink — have fun playing with your supplies again!
