Custom Gift Tags

Hello!  One of the best things about being a paper crafter is that you always have a great stash of ribbon and embellishments to create pretty gift tags and packaging in a hurry.   I was packing for our New Hampshire vacation and had to very quickly wrap  a couple of birthday gifts for my daughter and her husband.   I didn't have time to make them cards (I know, sad isn't it?  I make beautiful hand made cards for everyone but my own family!), so I decided to make them pretty tags instead.

The first gift is for my son- in- law.  I used some balloon gift wrap with bright, bold colors to wrap the gift.  I cut the tag using a Spellbinders Nestability Die.  Then I just added some cute birthday epoxy birthday stickers by K & Co and lots of pretty purple satin ribbon from my stash.  I left their names off the tags because I wanted them to be able to reuse the tags.  REDUCE, REUSE!  That's my motto!

Here is a picture of the entire gift box.
My next gift was for my daughter.  The gift wrap was a beautiful textured ivory with gold glitter print.  I then used the same Spellbinder's Die to cut my die, then I embossed a sentiment using gold embossing powder and added gold sequins for more bling.  The entire gift was wrapped with gold ribbon.
And here is her pretty package.
Have a great day! Amy
