Pretty Packages



Thanks for joining me with Donna Salazar's 12 Days of Christmas! I have a very simple project to share with you. I used a 12x12 sheet called "Artsy Christmas Cards" from Donna's line of "Artistic Papers". If you own a Dream Kuts machine, this paper was designed to work perfectly with it. Otherwise, you cut your paper down to 6 3''x6'' tags.



I kept my tags simple, I embllished them with my sewing machine and beautiful holiday ribbons. I used my Christmas card stamp from last year to "sign " the tags.



The Artistic papers are extra thick (100 lb paper)...thicker than cardstock, they are the perfect canvas for inks...paints...mists....watercolors...

I love the way it feels.



There are still a few days left in the 12 Days of Christmas with Donna Salazar Designs, keep checking in, Santa Donna has a sweet prize at the end.....
The schedule for the entire blog hop is right HERE!

Well these are wonderful and so much better than the black sharpie I used to write directly on the gift. Ok where were you a week ago. LOL. You did a wonderful job on these........

Love it! the tags are awesome! I have been using craft paper to wrap presents for the last few years and add pretty ribbon or embellies and cool tags too =) much more personal and way cuter!

The wrapping and tags look beautiful together. I have to start making these right after this Christmas for next year. I always say I'll make them but time flies by too quickly. I will make them early, I really will. ;)

You've inspired me to create my gift tags this year - I still need to wrap and was trying to find any leftover boughten tags from last year, but they are no where to be found ... so after seeing your darling tags, I'm off to my craft room to get creative and wrap some gifts! Happy Holidays to you and yours!
