If you have some last minutes gift wrapping to do and need ideas for unique name tags, here are two ideas to try out!
Let's start with the easiest first...
Everyone loves getting photos. Pick one or two (or more!) photos of the gift recipient, and stick it on the gift. No need to even write his/her name!
I ordered these square prints from Parabo (***$5 credit at the end of the blog post!), but since you don't have a lot of time to order photos, I suggest printing them out on cardstock at home or ordering one hour photos from Walgreens, Target, etc. You could even order cardstock prints from Staples or another office supply store. These are just fun little pictures to stick on the fridge or a bulletin board.
I made these ornaments on my embroidery machine, but you could make ornaments out of ANYTHING! Decorate glass ornaments, have your kids watercolor on paper and then cut snowflake shapes, make cookies for each person and stick it in a plastic bag with their name on in it...the possibilities are endless!
How I did it: I embroidered on felt and used a tear-away backing. I left the backing on and cut around the designs. The backing helped maintain some stiffness and shape. I glued ribbon on the back to make a hoop to hang the designs as ornaments.
I think there's something fun about personalizing gift wrapping for each person. It doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. Get creative!
