Christmas Tag printables!!

Wrapped gifts earlier today and I could not find my stash of gift tags!!  It is possible that the collection ended up in my serendipity bucket!!  Anyway, after reading about printables on this blog, I decided to see what I could find to just print!!  LOTS of choices out there!!  These ones coordinated the best with my gift wrapped gifts so I printed them (on cardstock) directly from the website - "control P" and I got a window from which I could print the file!!!  Too easy!  I trimmed around them and punched a hole and they were ready to go!!  Here is a link directly to the blog post on Caroline Johansson's blog.
The gifts are wrapped!!


Brown paper packages tied with string

 Hey!  Just here to share a really easy gift wrapping idea - brown paper tied with string!!
The brown paper showed up yesterday in a package that was delivered to the house!!  A long length of brown paper perforated every foot or so which I thought could easily be repurposed for decorative paper but later in the day I thought "I need a very simple wrapper for this gift" and remembered the brown paper.  I ripped off one length, folded it in half, ironed it flat and used my sewing machine with green thread to seal up both sides using a zig zag stitch!!  I tied it closed with some red cotton string!!  Too easy!!!!
Hope you holiday prep is going well.  The gifts are now wrapped and will go under the tree once we set up the tree - probably on the weekend!
