holiday how - to #2 tags and labels..... prepared is my motto for christmas this year so here is a quick.. how to get organised in the wrapping department :)
you will need..

*white card
*hole punch
*ink pad
*any christmas stamps

you just need to cut the card up into small rectangles to be folded in half for little gift tags,
long rectangles with holes punched in the end for swing tags,
A5 card size pieces to be folded in half for little thankyou notes

 any size stickers are good for labelling
just stamp away with your Christmas stamps 'till you are happy

 then just add the twine to your tags if you have made them yourself and you're all set, to wrap,stick,label and thank :)

note - most items were bought from basic stationery shops, the stamps I have collected over the years but etsy and ebay are great for these and the fab Thankyou stamp was from paperchase £2.50

 Happy 1st of December to you, we have had to have a star wars Lego advent calendar this year which is most un-christmassy so after losing our usual pocket one I ran this one up last night...using an old pillowcase and some strips of fabric, there were a few mistakes along the way like not putting enough pockets on!! but it all came right in the end!

hope you're having a happy advent day :)
