Do you know anyone with a Christmas birthday? It could be a bit of a bummer. Everything is hectic and everyone is tapped out in the gifting department. My sweet sister-in-law Adele is a Christmas baby, Happy 29th darling!!! 😉 Adele’s a florist, you might have read my interview here at Boomdeeadda in July. Just look what she made this week….beautiful! They’re from a very special friend 😉
I knew a girly gift was in order, because the Christmas season is truly a challenge for gals in her biz. I thought I’d share this idea with you on personalizing a gift. You don’t always have to start from scratch.
I started with these:
And gifted this:
I chose a vintage french perfume label out of a
collection I just bought at an antique shop in
I scanned one I loved, added a personal message
and printed it on a 4 x 6 piece of cardstock.
Using a hole punch, I adapted the pretty card for Adele’s earrings,
I cropped the same image to make a personalized tag for a pretty sweater. I printed it off on sticky backed canvas made especially for your ink jet printer. This was the first time I’ve used this product. It’s awesome, I have so many more ideas.
Once trimmed and top stitched, I sewed it on to the neckline
where I took off the regular scratchy tag.
I love these vintage labels. You can pick up a lot of them off the net for projects just like this.
Happy Birthday Adele!
We Love You xox!
