It's that time again. Time to make that Christmas to-do list and start checking things off. Now I know that it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but I try to get as much planned out and accomplished early so that I can enjoy the Christmas celebrations without last minute stress!
Before I jump into my project, I want to give you a glimplse into my Christmas decorations.
I know this photo is more focused on my daughter and I, but I think you can get a feel for what our homestyle Christmas looks like. Rustic, homemade ornaments with a warm, homespun feel to them. This carries over into our presents also. Everything is wrapped to match with basic kraft paper, twine and homemade tags. The Christmas lines from Simple Stories fit the bill perfectly. Last year, I used the 25 Days of Christmas for my gift tags. This year I was able to cross off "create Christmas tags" with the help from the fabulous Handmade Holiday Collection!
I create over 40 tags and I do it in an assembly line fashion. Simple Stories makes this so easy....with everything coordinating perfectly! This year I added in some paint and a star stencil and had them all completed within a couple of hours!
I used my Cricut to cut out the first initial of everyone on my gift list and then added some distressing ink to help coordinate them with the papers. Each one contains a holiday word sticker from the cardstock sticker sheet.
