Paint Chip Gift Tags

Christmas wrapping continued today at 'a casarella, and this time I decided to get creative with an old blogger favorite: paint chips.   Really, what can't you do with paint chips?  C'mon, earrings, lamps, gift boxes, clocks?  Let's just say that if I were stranded on a desert island, I would totally want to have a box of paint chips with me.  (I'd build myself a paint chip boat and sail right on out of there..)

But I digress...

Today's project was not exactly a matter  of life and death.  And it's certainly not as mind-blowing as this paint chip dress.

(But it was fun.)

(And cute.)

(And full of holiday goodness.)


You see, today I made myself some super-cute gift tags using green paint chips...

Scissors...

And a little bit of bling.

Plus blue paint chips...

A snowflake craft punch...



And some fun ric-rac.



Pretty cute, eh?

If you liked these, stay tuned.  I'll be posting more fun wrapping ideas in the coming weeks!

  1. I am in love with the snowflake cut outs. They are adorable. Those are probably the only snow flakes you'll see this year, huh? And, I like your Christmas trees...I made some (but different) as well.

  13. They are so cute! I tried to do this as well but felt mine still looked like paint chips! I think cutting them into xmas tree shapes definately helps :)
