Christmas gift wrapping inspiration and lots of free downloads


I presented a number of wrapping projects at the December 6th Creative Evening Workshop. Today I am going to share with you some of those gift wrapping ideas as well as the downloads that I created for the iron on transfers, stickers and gift tags that I used.

As you will see, there are a number of downloads!  As always, my downloads are free for you to use for your personal projects only. My art is not intended for any commercial use.

This first picture shows you a number of gift wrapping ideas using my "ho ho ho" art and our tin containers, paper bags and canvas bags

1.  A  sticker with the corners rounded, a small rhinestone buckle and black ribbon are used to decorate a tin gift card holder
2. A paper tag is added to a white paper bag that has been paper punched at the top and "sewn" closed with a ribbon and rhinestone buckle. I'll show you how to make these in another post this week. 
3. A long sticker and ribbon were used to close and decorated this tin container. I love these tin containers for packaging baked goods. 
4. I showed you how to use our large rhinestone buckles and ribbon to decorate a box in this post . We have since sold out of the letterpress tags that I used on this gift but you could easily use my round "ho ho ho" tag as an alternative.
5. Small canvas gift bags decorated with my ho ho ho iron on art are the perfect size for a gift card, small toy or candies.





Print this on white cardstock and cut out for gift tags.
Or print this on blank sticker sheets, cut them out and use them as decorations on boxes, bags, glass and  tin containers.


Download my ho ho ho iron on transfers art here. Remember you will have to reverse the art before you print it on the transfer paper with this art ...


or you can download my reversed iron on transfer art here.


You will find the art for my stickers here.
Print these on blank sticker sheets and cut them out as indicated. The large rectangular shapes fit our tin gift card holders  when you round the corners. The three long stickers can be used on our tin boxes as I have shown in the photo collage above or on a box or bag.


I also created the ho ho ho tags in black. I printed them as stickers and used them on the top of a tin pail. Tissue paper was cut to fit the inside of the tin container to hide the contents. Use scraps of ribbons and holiday ornaments to decorate the handle. I'll show you more ideas for decorating our tin pails in the next few days!

Dear Santa, please define "good".
I laughed the first time that I heard this saying. It sounded like something one of my girls would have said when they were younger. In this second group of gift wrapping ideas you can see that I used our glassine bags, boxes and tin containers with my chalkboard art design.

1. A gingerbread cookie is tucked inside this glassine bag and closed with a ribbon.  I added a jingle bell to the tag as a decorative element.
2. A tiny bottle brush tree that was dusted with silver glitter glass  is glued to a large clothespin that was embellished with glitter tape (all available in our Toronto store). The decorated clothespin holds the gift tag in place on top of a ribbon
3. Ornaments, decorative sprays and ribbons decorate a box wrapped with black paper for an over the top look. 
4. A box wrapped with kraft paper and simply decorated with my large label and baker's twine.
5. Round the corners of a sticker and add it to the top of a tin gift card holder.  

Download the Dear Santa tags here.
Print these on white card stock and cut as indicated. There is space at the top of the tag to punch a hole for string.

Download the large Dear Santa labels here.
Print these on white card stock and cut as indicated. Add holes to attach to gifts with twine. 
Or print these on blank sticker sheets  and cut out to use as decorative elements on bags, boxes, tin and glass containers.

I have more holiday gift wrapping to show you so stay tuned!
