to and from

Take a few shipping tags {found here, here and here}, some grey ink, a stamp, colored pencils, scraps of patterned paper, two girls and what do you get?
Gift tags for Christmas, that's what!

Here's our collection ready and waiting. The enthusiasm level for a Christmas in July craft wasn't very high yesterday. They just did not get the whole CIJ theme and after this handful of tags were done with Mommy's craft project. I'll have the girls write the To and From info in the space above Santa's cheery face, though. Using a light grey ink {kind of} makes the the drawing look as if it might be hand drawn. Knowing me, I'll probably replace the string with some baker's twine from The Twinery.

I just know you have some scraps lying around just begging to cutify a shipping tag. 


  1. They are so cute! Way to get ready for Christmas! :)

  2. What a cute idea! I may have to "borrow" this for my girls to do! But it might wait until October! LOL
