Hi, my name is Ashley, and I’m addicted to gift wrapping.
My dream “craft room” (ha!) would be full of wrapping supplies with a giant roll of kraft paper mounted on the wall like the wrapping paper at Macy’s or other places where you can pay to have your gifts meticulously wrapped. I haven’t found that room on Pinterest yet, but when I do, I will repin it on repeat just to be annoying.
When I saw Ana’s link-up, first I was all, yeah, right. DIY and I are not exactly BFFs. Then, I was totally going to be fancy and attempt to make cut-out cookies, which, never have I ever. Then, that so didn’t happen and boring old, perfected-recipe chocolate chip happened. They tasted good, but were not post worthy or experimental or...anything.
Then, as I was thinking about wrapping and getting ready for Valentine’s Day, I decided to attack the Pin in my head… DIY gift tags.
Prep work involved some Googling and digging through wrapping/crafting supplies.
There was some cutting, tracing, cutting again, stickering, 3rd great felt heart cutting, gluing, writing, raffia-tying, things I’m forgetting-ing.
The finished product:
|On their packages|
Difficulty: not at all
Creativity: the tiniest little bit
Will I do it again? You can count on it!
I was totally procrastinating on actually posting this, because it is so not impressive. But Ana keeps tempting me to give in to my link-up joining problem, by extending the time allowance, soooooooo Happy Valentine's Day otra vez!
