I didn't really intend to have a tree this year, but then last night I was making some more gift tags, and some more little stars, and it got me in the Christmas mood (about time!) So, Chris and I wandered into our back yard with some scissors and picked the best branch overhanging from our lovely neighbours pine-y tree, and voila!
We couldn't find anything lightweight enough to sit on top, so Chris made a paper star and stuck it to the wall. Nice.
Little decorations - when I make my gift tags I am very careful and position them so as to have the least wastage of paper - even though it's 100% post consumer recycled we still have to be careful with our resources! So, for every 14 tags I make there are some tiny paper scraps, plus enough stripey / spotty paper left over for 4 stars. Pretty! I think they look like shooting stars. A very little bit perhaps.
And some gifts underneath the tree - mostly handmade, lots from Etsy & Madeit, all good choices I think!
Of course, you can get your own pretty tags
On Etsy, or
Hooray for Holidays!
