Quick DIY Gift Tags for *Pretty Packaging*

DIY Christmas Gift Tags Main

If you didn’t have a chance to take advantage of the PDB 25% off Christmas gift tag discount from several fantastic artists earlier this month, here’s another quick idea for DIY gift tags that are both practical and pretty!

For this project, I used Christmas scrapbooking paper, a 1″ craft punch and a 1/8″ smaller punch for the inside hole.

So quick and easy to make! And an excellent way to differentiate between gifts on Christmas morning. Since I tend to wait and wrap all gifts in one afternoon, these tiny tags make it easy to remember which package, bottle of wine or plate of cookies is for which friend/family member while I’m racing out the door to a holiday party.

Instead of writing the recipient’s name in sharpie on the outside of the wrapped box, give this DIY project a try for pretty packaging!

Friday Guest Blog Interview: Full House!

Pepper Design Blog Guest Interview: Full House

I’m delighted to bring you Pepper’s featured guest blog interview this week… Christina of Full House!

It’s such a pleasure to host Christina for an interview after having the privilege of ‘peeking’ into her design & family world on a regular reading basis (she’s one of my favorite rss feeds). Christina writes a heartfelt, soulful blog on the daily happiness of her family as well as the conquers of her house decorating quest. She is lucky enough to have a full house indeed — Christina’s includes a set of twin girls and triplet boys! If you’ve ever played poker or yahtzee, then you can appreciate the fortitude of this particular ‘roll in the game of life’.

I know that after reading Christina’s wonderful interview {and viewing her hand-picked images that represent her style} you’ll be a regular follower as well.

Viva Full House Interview - Family

Full House is inspiring to me because it is truly written from the heart and is often encouraged by life’s daily grind. Everyday happenings influence full blown, beautiful home decor inspiration! Christina often showcases very glam rooms — but replicates the ideas on a budget that all of us can appreciate. Check out her DIY geometric whiteboard and felt lampshade inspiration, just two examples that I loved so much I had to post about them!

Visit her blog for DIY designs such as her paper sunburst mirrors (below). Swoon.

What’s more, Christina is seriously chic — you’ve never seen such a posh mommy of 5 little ones (did you see the amazing family photo above?). I have copied more than one fashion tip from this trendy lady!

I’m going to hand this interview over now so that we can jump right in as Christina shares more on her decorating style, favorite tips and what has inspired her to be the fabulous blogger she is today! Continue reading
