wishing you…


printable gift tags round-up

Oh boy. There is going to be a whole lotta gift wrapping in the next couple of days. I predict I will be buried under a huge mountain of wrapping paper, ribbon and discarded tape by the end of Christmas Eve night. But in the meantime, I have found some super cute free printable gift tags online that I can’t wait to use. I love the internet :)

Loving these gift tags  from Hey Look

More tags from Hey Look. Very colorful. Very cute.
