+ This Orange you Sweet Printable Christmas Gift Tags brought to you by WHIPPERBERRY +
With the hustle and bustle of the season, sometimes those fun little neighbor, teacher, boss gifts kinda make it to the bottom of the list. We all want to create a fun homemade gift, but at times… Homemade just isn’t in the cards.
NO PROBLEM! I have always been a fan of good packaging. When you have a goodie that has already been packaged well, It’s easy to all a little more pizzaz and voilà, you have a fun gift that everyone is going to love!! NO ONE is going to judge that you didn’t make 100 batches of your grandmother’s fudge. All they care about, is the simple thought.
The other day, I was at Trader Joe’s and I was reminded about how fantastic their Christmas goodies are! I thought…
Wouldn’t this be a great way to tell your neighbors, teachers, bosses, hair stylist, mail man, etc… That you are thinking of them this holiday season. I thought I could come up with some fun free printable gift tags and it will be even easier!
Here is the first little gift… Orange you Sweet Printable Christmas Gift Tags!
Who doesn’t love the Trader Joe’s Organic Milk Chocolate Orange?
This is a classic Holiday gift. I remember for years my Mom sharing stories of long ago about little children who were so happy to receive an orange on Christmas. How it was the most magical gift they could ever imagine. As a child I thought this was absurd. I didn’t have a clue as to how hard it was to actually grow and transport citrus to the fridged regions north of the Mason Dixon Line in the 1800’s. Once I matured, I got it. Oranges can be magical!
When chocolate oranges came on the market, my sister’s and I would get one in our stockings every year. It was for two reasons… First, to remind us of the simplicity that we should enjoy. To take the time to appreciate what we had. Second, they were pretty tasty!!
I thought this would be the perfect way to start my Trader Joe’s Christmas. You can get several different kinds of Chocolate Oranges, but I love the packaging that Trader Joe’s has to offer. All you need to do is find a ribbon that looks good wrapped around the box. I like this ribbon from May Arts.
Then I created a fun printable that you can print on simple white sticker paper.
Now, I’ve created a couple of files. For those of you who have a Silhouette cutting machine. You can use the Silhouette files. If you don’t have a Silhouette you can print the PDF file and and cut out the stickers yourself. It’s super simple.
You can grab some printable white sticker paper from Silhouette or you can go to your local office supply story and look for full sheets of sticker paper in the mail label section.
Then all you have to do is print and cut your stickers.
Wrap your boxes is a nice ribbon and secure the ribbon with your fun “Orange you Sweet, Merry Christmas” sticker!
Make-up a bunch of these for your co-workers, your church leaders, your kiddos bus driver… really anyone!
Stay tuned… Tomorrow, I will have another fun gift idea for my simple Trader Joe’s Christmas!
