15 days to go

Christmas parcel decorating ideas

Monogram Gift tags



Recycle holiday cards as labels for presents. With a pencil, kids can draw (or stencil) the recipient's initial onto a card and cut it out. Punch a hole in the letter, and tie to gift with yarn or ribbon.

Add a lovely touch to your presents by topping them with these lovely cupcakes in different sizes 

here is what you need

Cupcake liners in christmassy colours or designs
Awl
Brass fasteners/ split pins
Hot glue

Heres how to do it

STEP 1
Separate and set out liners.

STEP 2
Fold them in half.

STEP 3
Nest folded liners inside one another. (If using a variety of sizes, stack from largest to smallest.) With an awl, poke a hole in the center near the folds.

STEP 4
Send the stem of a mini brass brad through the hole. Pierce an unfolded cup with the brad. Spread brad to secure. Fan out liners to create ruffles.

Rotate each folded liner about a quarter turn, and overlap each one with the next until you've formed a flower shape. Hot-glue the liners directly to a gift or ribbon.
