This year for Christmas, I'm topping each wrapped gift with a handmade numbered gift tag.
Want to make some too?
Supplies needed: Manila folder(s), hole punch, scissors, craft paint, sponge brush, number stencils, and red and white twine (or regular twine, ribbon...whatever you have).
Step 1: Cut a rectangle out of the manila folder.
Step 2: Cut the two corners off of the top of the rectangle.
Step 3: Hole punch the top.
Step 4: Tie red and white twine through the top hole.
Step 5: Stencil on a number.
Each member of my family has a number this year, 1-5. But my numbers are not a secret. Number 1 is for the oldest member of our family (daddy) and number 5 is for the youngest (our daughter Cali).
I love the way the brown paper packages tied up with red and white twine and topped with manila tags looks under our Christmas tree this year. Simple + classic.
My goal is to get all of my Christmas wrapping done by the end of this week so that by next week, when my kiddos are all out of school for Christmas break, I don't have to think about it anymore. We can just relax and enjoy this special season.
