Printable Christmas Gift Tags

Amy here again from The Happy Scraps. Today I want to share these fun Christmas Gift Tag Printables with you.  Everyone needs tags for Christmas gifts, and I’ve made it easy for you.

Download and print your watermark free tags here.

Once you have it downloaded, print it out.  

Then cut up your tags.  You can hand cut with scissors, or just use a paper cutter.

Now you are ready to attached them to your gifts.  I chose to punch a hole in the corner and use baker’s twine to tie my tags on. 



Now that you have the tags, hopefully you’ve finished your Christmas shopping and have gifts to go with them.  If you are still looking for gift ideas, I have a few over at The Happy Scraps.  I’d love to have you come by.

Ooh, I just love these gift tags! I put beautifully wrapped packages on my wish list so these will be perfect! Thanks Amy!

Holiday Ornament Appliqued Kitchen Towel

Hi everybody.  Ali here from HouseVintage.  I have a great little project to share with you today.  It only takes a few hours and would make a special handmade holiday gift.

See full holiday towel tutorial.

Here is what you need:
  1. Ornament template- I used this one from Martha Stewart.  Print it and cut it out.
  2. Buttons- I used some vintage buttons from my stash, but whatever you have on hand will work.
  3. Felt- This is a great use up for a scrap of felt.
  4. Kitchen Towel- Feel free to sew your own.  I bought this one from IKEA.

I decided to line up my three cutouts.  I then used a zigzag stitch on my machine to sew around the outside edge.  Go slow, and make adjustments, so you stay close to the edge.  If you don’t have a sewing machine, you could use an iron-on adhesive and skip the sewing all together.  
Position and hand sew on your buttons.
You are done!  Iron your towel, and it is ready to display or give as a gift.

Thanks Ali! These are the perfect way to spruce up your holiday kitchen or such a fun neighbor gift!

Lavender Bubbles

Hello there! I’m Kelly from Smart School House and it is always such a privilege to be here! Today I have a beautiful craft to share with you and your kids will love it too. That’s right, it’s beautiful and kids will love it. Introducing: DIY Lavender Bubbles!

DIY Lavender Bubbles by Smart School House

See the full tutorial

Now, I realize that the weather has cooled off a bit in some places (and it might even be snowing where you are). However, here on the coast of California, the weather is still lovely! So, in celebration of Halloween being over and the crisp skies outside, I decided to create something that was inspired by nature. Plus, you can’t eat it! Let’s be honest here, after all of that Halloween candy, doesn’t it sound nice to go outside and play? Exactly! DIY lavender bubbles are perfect to relax your kiddos while playing outdoors.
I have a lot (a lot) of lavender growing! Here is a picture of the lavender in my front yard. This lavender has inspired me to make so many things on my blog!

Lavender Driveway

 To make the DIY Lavender Bubbles, you only need a few simple ingredients:

  • A Bubble Container 
  • Pipe Cleaners 
  • Lavender Scented Dish Soap (I found mine at the dollar store!) 
  • Sugar 
  • Food Coloring 

To make the Lavender Bubbles:

Combine 4 cups of warm water with 1/2 cup of sugar. Once the sugar is completely dissolved, add 3/4 cup of the lavender dish soap Add 1 drop of blue food coloring and 3 drops of red food coloring Store in an air tight container.

To make the DIY bubble wand:

Create a circle near one end of the pipe cleaner and twist any extra around the stem of the pipe cleaner (so easy!).

Have you ever made your own bubble solution? There are so many ways you can do it. Keep in mind that your dish soap might be a little different than mine and that’s ok! Simply add more or less as you see needed. The same goes with the food coloring! Some lavender dish soaps are more purple than others, so if you just add a little at first, it can’t go wrong! Have fun and happy fall!

Thanks Kelly! I adore the idea of a gift that can be both beautiful and so much fun!

Printable Thanksgiving Place Cards

Amy from The Happy Scraps here again.  I’m excited to share this simple Thanksgiving Place Card Printable with you today.

The Thanksgiving place cards come four to a sheet, and when cut they are 3 1/2 x 5.  You will need to trim all sides, and the middle horizontally and vertically. If you would like to download the printable file, watermark free, you can do so here.

Once you have the place cards cut, you can write the names on them.  I opted to score mine on the line to make folding easier. 

And that is it!  They are ready to use. 

So very simple and easy.

And everyone will be excited to find their names. 

If you are looking for my Thanksgiving decorating ideas, come on over to The Happy Scraps and see what I have to share!

Thanks Amy these are great! I feel like we are always scrambling to decide who sits where keeping couples together and lefties together, etc. These will be great to create some order and add some charm!
