Gift Tags & Present Toppers

Sometimes you find a little treasure in the ether that you just need to share. That's how I feel about the gift tags Brooke posted at Inchmark last Christmas. So simple. So darling. That's pretty much what you get at Inchmark: Simple & Darling. Every time. It's one of my favorite clicks in all of the internets.

Check out Brooke's tutorial for homemade gift tags. It's such a fun way to use up small scraps of fabric. (You know I'm a sucker for projects made from scraps - so resourceful). Click on over to Inchmark to download the PDF (the link to the template is embedded in her post, you can't miss it) - and make some cute tags to attach to your gifts this year.

We also loved these photo-gift tags that Sarah Nielsen created:

Sarah is always coming up with creative solutions to everyday problems. For example: last year her little Max wanted to help hand out gifts on Christmas morning, but couldn't read the names written on the gift tags. So, Sarah designed these darling photo gift tags. The intended recipient's photo is printed on the tag so even your littlest ones will be able to know who each gift is for.

Brilliant! And, just like everything else Sarah does, these tags are completely darling. Contact Sarah through her shop to have her design a personalized set for your family.

Here's another fun present-topper/ornament idea:

A few weeks ago we got an email from Mickie who pointed us in the direction of these cool paper ornaments/present-toppers. (Links to PDF instructions below video clip) We love these for several reasons: you probably have the supplies laying around, your kids can help, and these are another great way to use up scraps! Mickie had the lovely idea to save the links from your grateful chain and use them to make ornaments for your Christmas tree - such a neat way to carry those thankful feelings through the entire holiday season.

Thanks, Mickie! We love hearing from our readers.
