Packaging the Christmas Presents

In my earlier post, I shared with you the calendar I made for this year’s Christmas presents. I wanted DIY packaging for the presents using only materials I already had in the house.

Here are some of the materials I used:

  • old magazine pages
  • colored string
  • scrapbook paper
  • buttons

raw materials

gift tags and buttons

I created a doodle, scanned and printed the gift tags on recycled board paper.

tagI tied up the calendar using colored string and included an individually hand written label. I made paper envelopes using old magazine pages.

I glued the gift tags to scrapbook paper and attached buttons.
