It's Going To Be A Kraft Christmas!

Every year my wrapping of Christmas gifts seems to turn into a torturous event.  My painstakingly chosen gifts are turned into a crumpled, sad looking monstrosity of ill wrapped disappointment.  This year WILL be different.

It started (as most of my craft obsessions do) with pinterest.  After browsing for Christmas crafts, I started to lust after the beautifully presented packages that seemed to festoon the pins.  An absolute favourite seemed to be Kraft tags and brown paper.

I have always loved the traditional red and golds of Christmas, so perhaps it wasn't such a leap for me to decide to pair this colour scheme with the Kraft card and brown parcel paper.

Turning back to pinterest, I started a board for inspiration.  Here are a few of my favourite pins!

I'm a sucker for anything gingerbread related, so there is a definite NEED to create my very own gingerbread house tags!

Do you see that fantastic 'Time to Drink Champange' tag?  Well that tag started my inspiration for printing my own using Kraft card gift tags using my beloved Silhouette Cameo!

These are so simple, yet so adorable!  I love the idea of mini message bunting and I just know that it is going to be a cinch to create with the silhouette cameo print and cut feature!

Where to even begin with this one?  It has a jingle bell and a cute Monogram tag that could easily double up as a hanging tree decoration once it's all unwrapped.

Candy cane gift tag? Yes Please!  I can see this will be a winner for all the littlies (and a great deal of biggies too!)

This year I am going to own that wrapping!
