handmade gift tags

 

Do you ever make a gift, then put it away and forget about it? I like to wrap my items when they’re finished and put them all in the same closet so I know where they are when I need them.

As a special bonus, the Water Color Bundle also includes a sheet of 8 different handmade gift tags.
