Homemade gift wrapping… paper, tags and ribbon

For me, wrapping gifts is almost as much fun as giving them.

I want them to be beautiful… memorable… and part of the surprise.



Over the weekend I fulfilled one of my annual traditions… watching a Christmas movie, while sorting and wrapping gifts and writing cards.

I had such fun making homemade ribbon, embellishments and tags…

And I have several free tutorials and printables, so you can make your own too!


Shabby Art Boutique - Printable Calligraphy Tags


I designed these calligraphy tags to use and you can download and print them too.

Simply right click to open full size on another screen and then save to your own computer. Four tags will fit on one A4 or letterhead page. Print and cut out on inside of the tag outline.

There’s one for Christmas…
