To make these I took plain manilla tags (from any office store) and stamped a large capital letter on them for the initials of my family members using a versamark ink pad. Then I sprinkled them in red embossing powder and embossed them with a heat gun. Next I just added a simple heart and my name to show who is was from. On the other gift tag i selected a holiday text stamp and stamped it in red along one side. Super simple but I really like how they turned out. The embossing doesn't really show in the picture though which is unfortunate.
For wrapping this year I am sticking to a red, white and brown theme. Well sort of. I love the look of the using yarn rather than ribbon to tie some bows as well as using brown kraft wrapping paper which I bought from the post office. It really shows when you put even a little bit of effort into wrapping gifts and I think it fits in nicely with the pretty ornaments you have on your tree!
Well I'm off to have supper and then finish up two more Christmas gifts I have to make, wish me luck!
