Some inspiration for Christmas crafting
Here's another thing that is inspiring me right now.
You can see how the crafter just stamped "To" and "From" on the back of the card. It looks as if she might have distressed the card a bit first, or maybe she found it that way.
Here's another tag, one I found in an old book I'm giving to a thrift store. This is a tag handmade by my mother out of an old Christmas card. The hole hadn't punched all the way through and there was writing on the back specifying the to's and from's of the gift. I refurbished it so it can be used again, adding a blank sticker to the back to cover the writing; punching the hole in the corner; adding a silver string so it can be tied to a gift.
It was too cute to just throw it away.
I've not done a lot of paper crafting, so I'm aware I'll need to buy a few supplies for the Dutch Blitz tags. But guess what? Along with that very pretty card from my friend Ruth were a few other treats, including a generous gift card from Hobby Lobby. I will have fun shopping for stamps, washi tape and more. It's always nice when a fellow crafter draws one's name in a gift exchange!
