DIY Glitter Polka Dot Gift Wrap

If you haven’t noticed this week, I really like wrapping gifts! But, I also really like to add a diy element to gift wrapping as well. It always adds a little more thought and love to the gift. And, since I liked my glitter monogram gift wrapping so much, I came up with another very easy glitter gift wrap – polka dots! This glittered polka dot wrapping paper is an easy and quick solution for any gift, and can be done in a matter of minutes.

What you will need:
White gift wrapping paper
Round sponge brushes

1: I like to start by wrapping my gift in white paper. You can usually find rolls of white paper at office supply or paper stores. By wrapping the gift first, you are able to place your polka dots in the perfect spots. 2: Pour some of the glue out onto a paper plate. Dip your round sponge brush into the glue and stamp it onto your wrapped gift. 3: Sprinkle glitter onto the dot of glue. Tap the excess glitter off of the gift. 4: Repeat until your polka dots are done. Let the present dry.

I tried doing both a uniformed polka dot and random style. They are both adorable and very fun to make! I tied mine up with ribbon before stuffing them under the tree, but they would also look adorable with a handmade bow or tag.

The Fabulous Free Printable Gift Tags you never knew you needed.

You know how I mentioned in my free printable holiday gift labels¬†that I loved using the Avery labels to print my designs on? Well, I wasn’t joking. And now I am hooked. So, naturally, I had to design some fabulous (aka. cheeky) labels to stick on every present within sight. Because my presents are so good that it even made Santa jealous.

I really had too much fun coming up with these. I was a little more pressed for time than I would’ve liked and was only able to come up with 6 retro designs. But, once again, they printed beautifully on the Avery 2″ round labels. It’s great to have something be extra special, but also be extra easy. Simply download (available below), print, and stick!

Be sure to stick a label on every gift this year! You wouldn’t want to make anyone felt left out, now would you? I still can’t decide which design is my favorite – probably making Santa jealous. Just sounds like it is a fun gift to open. But, then again, the “No Peeking” labels are great for those notorious snoops in my family.

Free Printable Holiday Gift Labels – perfect for all those neighbor gifts!

Every year my family gathers together and puts together little handmade treats to pass out to our good neighbors and friends. It’s always a fun day busily baking while chatting with my sisters and mom. While we usually make homemade chocolates and candies, sometimes we also put in the occasional baked breads, candy popcorn, and cookies.

But, after all of that baking and test tasting, we are usually too worn out at the end of the day to want to think about cute packaging. So, I decided to think about it a head of time this year and come up with some fabulous printable labels that are easier to dress up a paper bag than it should be.

Avery was nice enough to send me over a package of their printable labels and tags to try out for my holiday packaging this year. And, I’ve got to say, I really like them! I was skeptical, at first, because I’ve tried labels and printable business cards before, and have never been that impressed. But these were a lot of fun, and I think the color turned out great – especially on the glossy labels (which included the ovals and circles).
And, lucky for you, I’ve decided to share my holiday label designs with you as a free printable. The Avery labels I designed for were – Avery 2 1/2″ glossy ovals, Avery 2″ squares,¬†Avery 2″ glossy circles, & Avery 3 1/2″ tags.

All you have to do, after baking and creating all your holiday treats, is print out these labels, grab some boxes and washi tape, ribbon, twine, etc. Put it all together, and what have you got? A delightful little table full of treats to share!
