Vintage inspired giftwrapping

Vintage inspired giftwrapping

Thought I’d do a vintage inspired Christmas this year, well, last year, as it’s the 8th of January already.  Only got so far as the gift wrapping though.  The tree doesn’t look very vintage either, but I think it’s still pretty :)

The idea started with the making of wooden hearts that I wanted to hang on the tree, but I decided to use them as name tags on some of the gifts.  I made them totally by myself and from scratch, using a jigsaw, sandpaper, my printer and some washi tape.  The wording on the hearts was done using wax paper in the printer and transferring it onto the wood.  After a lot of practice this is what I came up with:

I wanted to create vintage-looking prezzies, combining the wooden hearts with doilies and brown paper…
