Hi!! How was ur weekend? On Sunday, hubby and I jetted to buy a new Christmas tree .. our living room one DRIED OUT - yikes!! We tried to water it but the trunk was too bit to fit the base with enough room to take in water. So, we got a TALLER and WIDER tree … with a thinner trunk and it’s slurping away all the yummy water we feed it. Did you see the gift tags I made from photos? I am still in the gift-idea-mode so today I’ll show you how I created gift tags and wrapping paper from grocery bags. Here I go, snip snip ….
The grocery bags are from when I went shopping at Trader Joe’s … every year that come out with their festive designs on their brown bags which we get for free when we go shopping there. Don’tcha love FREE things!!!
I use the bags for wrapping gifts and for creating gift tags (a matching set!! .. oooh yeah for FREE):
Below are more photos. Do you like? Do you have a Trader Joe’s near you?
You can STILL create a lovely holiday-look from a solid color paper bag by adding ornamnets, a holiday-icon decor like a small Christmas stocking, or a card what you can personalize:
Are you planning on creating your own gift tags this year or using store bought ones? I plan on using both. In this Thursday’s blog post, I reveal MORE gift tags ideas …. from left over Christmas cards and more recycled tags (psst … from Starbucks brown bag and cup holders) - here’s a preview peek of a tag created from Starbucks’s coffee cup HOLDER (yep, theholder that keep us from burning our hands when sipping their deliciousness) and stay tuned this Thursday for more:
