Just In Time For Christmas!

I am off track in December this year (yay!) so I have had lots of time to craft and to shop. I am alomost done with all of my holiday shopping which is a first. I usually have to teach until Decmeber 23rd so I end up being one of those last minute shoppers out on Christmas Eve. This week I have been slowly wrapping all of my gifts and I remembered one of my friend's special gift wrapping tricks. My friend Katie over at favorites and things makes bows for her presents out of wrapping paper...genious!!

For the tutorial on how to make these fabulous bows go here. Who doesn't have a little extra scrap of paper while they're wrapping...I know that I always do! This is a great way to spruce up your gift for FREE! Speaking of free I also got onto google pictures and typed in "printable christmas gift tags" and found this little jewel. I hat buying gift tags because no one really looks at them and then just end up right in the garbage.

I found this adorable picture and went into word to make it all fit on one page. After I printed them out I colored them for an extra touch...They would look cute even without coloring but hey I had time;) This is the finished product!

Aren't my gifts beautiful with Katie's bows and the free gift tags? I love the double sided wrapping paper that I found this year at Sam's...the bows look great with the other side of the paper!
