I’m so excited to be guest posting for the 25 Frugal Days of Christmas. I’m Annette, over at Tips From a Typical Mom, you can learn more about me and follow me on social media at the bottom of this post. Thanks Heather for having me!
I’ve always loved handmade gifts. Much more than store bought ones. It really makes me think “Wow, they must really like me to spend so much time on making something for me”. Usually handmade gifts require a lot of thought and time sacrificed by the giver. I love making treats for my neighbors, I love sewing or crocheting something for my kids. I hope my gift will show them how much I care about them.
Not only are homemade gifts thoughtful, they are also usually less expensive than store bought ones. Not all the time, but most of the time. This year I made these cute Owl Heating Bags for my daughters, and I’ll be making Snake heating bags for my boys.
I think gift tags can polish off a gift, so I decided to make these Handmade With Love gift tags to go along with the things I make this year. These will be so cute with a hole punched in them ( I have a heart hole punch too!) and tied with ribbon onto these homemade gifts I am making.
I think I’ll print mine through a photo printing place, although you could just print them on card stock through your printer. My printer just doesn’t do a great job! You can also leave a little note on the back of the card stock ones.
Here is what they look like on an 11×8.5 sheet. You can download your sheet for free HERE.
Just print them, cut them out and you’re done. EASY! I hope you enjoy these as much as I will, and be sure to visit my blog, Tips From a Typical Mom for a lot more printables, recipes and parenting ideas. Merry Christmas!
