I love handmade tags for gifts. I think they often work much better than a card and use considerably less resources. I usually stamp sticky tags for the holidays but this year I thought I’d go with a parcel tag instead.
I used this tag as my example — which I made during one of my many scrapbook getaways at the Brennan house — to cut out 50 or so tags for upcoming gifts. The entire project took about 30 minutes and cost $2. Granted, they still need to be stamped and embellished, but they are a great canvas for that neighborhood bread project and the stack of presents needing to be wrapped. The alternative was a $40 box of tags from Staples. I’m a crafty frugalista.
P.S. The winners of the neighbor-bread tag contest are:
Lori: ‚ÄúBread for myself is a material question. Bread for my neighbor is a spiritual one.‚Äù — Nikolai Berdyaev &
Teresa “Prairie Girl”: “Bread – that this house may never know hunger. Salt – that life may always have flavor. Wine – that joy and prosperity may reign forever.”
Your tags are going in the mail this week! Thank you for all of your great suggestions.
