Little Drummer Boy Gift Tag::Bloggers Best 12 Days of Christmas

Little-Drummer-Boy-Printable-Gift-Tag

Hello there! I’m Laura from Inspiration for Moms and I am thrilled to be hanging with the Crafting Chicks today! I’m sharing with you an easy gift printable for the theme of twelve drummers drumming. When I think of drummers, I am reminded of one of my favorite Christmas songs…The Little Drummer Boy. So I took that song and combined it with a classic drummer boy silhouette to make some darling gift tags. These tags are a great way to add a little traditional Christmas to your special gifts. And they’re perfect if you’re up at 2 am wrapping those last minute gifts and need some very creative tags. See there, I gotcha covered! To print your own gift tags, just click on the image below and save to your computer. (When you’re ready to print, select 8×10 and two tags should easily fit on one piece of card stock.) If you’re looking for a few more Christmas crafts, my [Read More…]

Christmas Cheer::Bloggers Best 12 Days of Christmas

christmas cheer gift

Hi there…  it’s the girls from eighteen25 and we are so excited to be here. Some people may think it’s too early to be thinking about Christmas gifts and putting up the tree, but NOT us. We are ready for the magical days of Christmastime! I just happen to be listening to Christmas music as I’m typing this and it makes my heart happy! Today we’ve put together a quick gift idea that would be perfect for practically anyone. It’s one of our favorite quotes from the movie Elf and we completely agree with it. The best way to spread Christmas Cheer IS singing loud for all to hear. So why not spread that cheer by delivering some Christmas music to friends and family. You can attach the fun tag to a Christmas CD with a little twine. This CD just happens to be Idina Menzel: Holiday Wishes. I just picked it up from Target yesterday and it’s a good one! If giving the CD: - [Read More…]

Chalkboard Mug::Bloggers Best 12 Days of Christmas

Chalkboard-Mug-Tutorial-5

Hi there! I’m Kelly from Typically Simple and I’m super excited to be sharing an easy chalkboard mug DIY project that is perfect for gift-giving! I absolutely love coffee! Every morning, the words “but first coffee” run through my head, especially when our little guy is ready to go at 6 am! I cannot think straight until that caffeine hits my veins. So I thought it would be fun to make some chalkboard mugs that would be great for giving as a gift. You could fill them up with some tasty teas or hot cocoa mixes or even throw in a gift card to their favorite coffee shop! Supplies Coffee Mug Porcelaine Chalkboard Paint Paint Brush Painters Tape Chalk To get started, tape off the part of the mug you do not want to paint. Because of the curve, I found it easiest to work in small pieces so the line would be straight. After getting all the tape in [Read More…]

I am a huge lover of all things packaging.  Giving a homemade gift bag or wrapping lets the person know how much you love them.  Plus, you can be as creative as you want to be when it comes to making these stamped gift bags. I love these fabric gift bags!  I ordered mine from a website but you can always make your own.  You can use the gift bags for just about anything.  Sweet treats, homemade candies or those odd shaped gifts that you can’t wrap. Let’s get to it! Supplies: Fabric gift bags Stamps Ink pads Fabric scraps Scissors Paint *optional Glitter *optional I wanted my bags to look simple and rustic and I think they turned out pretty good.  For my bags I used Christmas [Read More…]
