Free Downloads: Christmas Gifttags!

Aaarrgghh....! Is it really Christmas Eve tonight?
Yikes! Where did the holidays go?! How is it ending so fast?! I was just beginning to get in the mood! (Slow, I know.)

One thing that got me in the Christmas-y mood was giftwrapping.
I usually procrastinate terribly in this, but not this year, thanks to all the wonderful gift wrapping ideas floating round the handmade blogland and shops :) While making gift tags is one of my favourite parts of wrapping, I didn't make any of my own this time round. There were too many lovely ones from amazing illustrators on the internet! When I first saw them, I thought, "How nice - but I'm not going to use them since I love making my own...". But then again, how could one resist such pretty work (that would look 100x better than what I would create anyway...). So I succumbed to all the wonderful goodness and printed all my gift tags this year!

Here are some free downloadable gift tags I found online, in case you're the last minute kind (cough, like me) and need something pretty to jazz up your gifts :)

Mail Art by Roben-Marie Smith

I can't remember how I stumbled upon Roben-Marie's blog, but I was in awe while scrolling through her posts on mail art that she makes. So, so lovely...

Can receiving mail be any more appealing?
She uses file folders as envelopes!

Woolen mail art someone sent her!
