DIY Idea: Printed Gift Tags and Packaging

You can never start early enough to prepare nice packaging material for Christmas.

For these gift tags I carved a Christmas tree out of an eraser. Using a white eraser as a printing block has got several advantages.

The material is pretty soft und you can easily draw your motif on it with a pencil before you cut it out.

And once you have made your set of stamps, you can print with them again and again.

For Christmas I like to use golden or silver linocut printing colour.

Christmas Crafts

I’ve been working on some nice Christmas cards and packaging recently.

I got very simple brown packages and tags and printed on them. I also used pages of old books which I painted over with gold and silver linocut colour. Finally I decorated some of the tags with Christmas washi tape.

They look pretty nice, don’t they?

A Blue and White Christmas…

This year I preferred a blue and white-themed Christmas gift wrapping. But of course some gold should not be missing as well…
