Last Christmas when I showed you the reindeer gift tags I had made for our family, you went (Christmas) crackers, so this year I just couldn’t resist making some for you too. I have spent the last 8 months obsessing and perfecting the perfect packaging for this year’s festive season and I’m beyond excited to introduce it to you now.
First up are the Reindeer gift tags, they may look super simple, but as always, the devil is in the detail. I wanted to ensure that my tags were extra special, and not just something that you could pick up anywhere. So, I created a bespoke cutter to give them a beautiful, scalloped edge which I love. I have deliberately left them blank on the back to give you and your little one’s maximum space to write your own merry messages. Now that Thomas is learning to write I am always conscious of giving him the extra space he needs to write himself!
The Reindeer Tag Making Kits come with 8 tags, 8 red and white bakers twine strings and 8 self-adhesive sparkly reindeer noses. You can also choose to have them with or without ink pads to save you doubling up on brown ink if you already have the Reindeer Christmas Card Making Kit. I have been experimenting with them myself and they also make perfect table place cards or tags for your festive bakes. I’m using them for our magic Reindeer food jar – the possibilities are endless!
Perhaps you thought I was done with this year’s new collection…but oh no. Not yet! Holed up in my own Christmas Workshop, I ended up in a Christmas themed rabbit hole of crafting, and once I’d started, I just couldn’t stop!
Once I’d started I just couldn’t stop and before I knew it I had designed wrapping paper too! Once again, the inspiration came from our family, as you know I am a tad Christmas obsessed and always looking for more Christmas craft ideas to do with the children in December. So I thought it would be so lovely to make our own wrapping paper for one or two of the most important gifts.
Say hello to my Elf and Fairy Gift Wrap Making Kits. Each kit comes with two sheets of recyclable gift wrap 50x70cm (folded), 4 matching gift tags with red and white bakers’ twine and self-adhesive sparkly gems to add to the tags. The kits also contain an ink pad so that you can add your fingerprints to the paper. Each sheet contains approximately 40 characters to fingerprint, and it will make a wonderful Christmas activity for your little ones to enjoy in the run up to Christmas. We are going to be using ours for the Teacher gifts and presents for grandparents.
So this year when the Christmas shop opens, you will find my Festive Fingerprints Gift Wrap Collection and Gift Tags sitting alongside my Christmas cards. The perfect way to add a personal finishing touch to your gifts this festive season.
This collection has been the most fun to create and I just hope you love it as much as me.
