Tied Up With Strings...

Are you Christmas shopping yet? Have you already wrapped your packages? Are you thinking about HOW to wrap your packages?

I am. I'm actually thinking about putting up my Christmas tree this week. I'm sure my husband would hate me... and my mother thinks I'm crazy. So hopefully I can hold off until the middle of November.

But they can't keep me from listing holiday items in my etsy shop!

When someone buys a necklace from my shop, I package it in one of these lovely kraft cotton filled boxes. The boxes have been covered with pages from vintage childrens books and adorned with a ribbon, bow, and vintage button. However, I wanted to make these boxes available to people who will be gifting their own handmade necklaces and want a unique way to package them.

I have also recently added gift tags to the shop! They come in sets of 12, but feel free to convo me for a different amount. The images can also be made into cupcake pics, if you should so desire! It would be fun to host a party and use the tags as favors and have matching cupcake pics. This first set is a little handstamped birdie guarding a present. "DON'T OPEN UNTIL CHRISTMAS!" he warns.

This second set of gift tags features a candy striped scalloped circle. Inside there are two different handstamped sayings. One is a vintage look "NOEL" and the other is a vintage look "JOY". The set of 12 comes with 6 of each design. Both sets of tags are stamped with a "To:/From:" design on the back and are hole punched with a black ribbon to tie onto packages.

I hope you enjoyed this holiday preview!
