I've mentioned before that I like to make handmade Christmas wrapping paper and gift tags. This year I scanned some to show you what I do.
The wrapping paper is simply freezer paper painted with acrylic paint for the background. Then used more acrylic paint on a rubber stamp for the greenery. The tag is made from shipping tags, pigment ink, a rubber stamp and a Santa image.
The tags below are all made from shipping tags that have been altered with paint or pigment ink and images added. Not hard to do and yet they give your gifts a personal touch.
I am trying to get a post together for the evening of the 25th to show off a gift I made for my daughter but I may not get to it until I return from our trip to New Mexico to see her and the rest of the family. If I don't get the post together before I leave, I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I'll see you when I return on the 29th or so.
Enjoy your families and savor the moments you're together.
Thanks for reading.
