Holiday Gift Wrap DIY: Add Some Snowman Fun To Your Gifts

Hello! Jennifer Priest here with a cute way to wrap holiday gifts using tags created with the new Sizzix Homegrown & Handmade dies by Stephanie Ackerman and twine. Every year for the holidays I bake favorite family cookies and make candies to pass out to friends and family. Besides the yummy goodness inside, everyone has come to expect the "sweet" gifts to be wrapped in an exciting way.

The one year I decoupaged and decorated paper mache gift boxes, everyone was super impressed! The bar is high for adorable holiday gift wrap in my circle of friends but, it doesn't have to be complicated to be cute. This year, I decided to go with paper mache boxes again, decorating them with a cute plaid gift tag that gives a tactile experience.

This tag combines paper and felt with a twine bow for a tag that is not only adorable to look at but is also fun to touch. Using fabric with Sizzix dies is a great way to create additional texture on a project without any extra effort. Plus, kids love touching the fabric die cuts on projects!

Watch the video above to see how I created these homespun holiday tags for wrapping my Christmas cookie gifts this year. Tie the tags to larger, wrapped gifts or to gift bags for a different look. You can even customize the tags to each person in your family, die cutting the top hat and scarf for the snowman from their favorite colors or patterns. For me, plaid is the thing this year so I am going with plaid and buffalo checks all the way!
