Vintage Parcels and Other Cuteness

I came across this adorable idea here from this online Aussie magazine.
We ship a number of gifts to children.
I would love to have filled the UPS boxes with gifts wrapped like old parcels from the post office.
All the sources are listed in the current issue of LMNOP, click here to download.

Another idea that I did use are these labels free to download from Jones Design Company
Not only do all the gifts don her tags, 
but a number contain handmade items made by me via her tutorials. Thanks, Emily!
And one more gift topper that I'm off to make in a second
are these darling little book page flowers via Holly's blog.
Off to get my crafty on...

I'm going gaga over these little book page flowers! 
So stinkin' cute! 
I made one Holly's way and another using Emily's technique for fabric flowers. 
 Both equally easy and cute.  Here, see for yourself...
So thankful for all you creative bloggers out there who are willing to share your ideas!!


  1. Uh-oh. I have a feeling I'm going to be busy making book page flowers now. Is downloading easy? Those tags look so cute but for some reason it seems hard to figure out. Love all your packaging, Tessa!

    p.s. We are clearly long lost soul sisters. Our prom pics are eerily similar...I have the same bangs and same looking dress!

  2. Tiffany - So funny about your prom pics! Did you marry the guy in yours too?! :) The lables are easy-peasy. Just print on white card stock. Emily even drew the cut lines and place for the hole punch. You can't mess up!

  3. LOVE all of these. Your paper is adorable!

  4. I've made book page everything else this christmas...but these flowers are soooo cute!!


  5. I wish someone would come over and inspire me with good gift wrapping! I love a pretty package (simple but fun), yet I have zero creativity left after card season. Maybe when I retire from cards someday, I can try these cute ideas! In the mean time...I'm lucky to get anything wrapped at all! ;)

    It's a good thing Christmas isn't about the wrapping!

    Merry Christmas to you, Tessa!

  6. Tessa - My prom date (aka first love) I broke up with :(. He married the girl he dated after me. OK, I'm going to log off now before I start looking (dwelling) over his pictures on FB (ha ha). LOVE the song on here (the one from the commercial about everybody needs love). MERRY CHRISTMAS! xoxo
