Christmas Gift Wrap

I love Christmas! Giving gifts is one of my very favorite things! I love to pick out the perfect gift for each person on my list. I think special gifts deserve special wrapping.

What is more fun than opening a present that looks as pretty on the outside as it does inside the box?

Here is my gift wrap for this year. I went with red and silver polka dot paper and coordinating bows. (The red is really bright in these photos due to the flash.)
While Christmas shopping, I saw similar initial ornaments at Pottery Barn, that I thought would make great gift tags. Except I wasnt paying $4 a piece for them. Of course, I decided to make my own. =)

I printed out initials on heavy card stock paper. Then traced a circle around each one and cut them out. I used craft glue to draw a border around each tag, and then dusted each with my favorite Martha Stewart glitter in White Gold.

In hind sight I should have used plain old elmers glue because it is a lot thinner. I think they turned out pretty cute though!
