I am not the best gift wrapper on this planet. Why? Because I lack patience and honestly, don’t enjoy it very much. But, I am a clever person and I know my super power: Whenever I get to DIY something, my creative juices will start to flow and passion will take over. This way I can trick myself into doing things I don’t enjoy. Simply add a crafty project into the mix and I am all game. So, making these darling Upcycled DIY Gift Tags In Red & Green totally did the trick for this years Christmas gift wrapping you guys. Can you relate?
