Wrapping is in full-swing at our house. First thing I did: get my tags in order, a la the guide I posted in October.
One thing I did fail to mention: the key to tag-making is allowing for plenty of dry time. Let them sit overnight if you can. No sense in making beautiful tags that smudge. Another tip: a giant pastry board makes for a sturdy work surface and transporter if you like to punch and stamp by the lights of your Christmas tree like I do (thanks, Krisa!).
I invested in two stamps this season and I'm loving them. Both from Paper Source.
Coming tomorrow: an inexpensive and festive hostess gift, inspired by The Crate.
