Holiday Gift Topper

I'm thinking about wrapping Christmas gifts in brown paper this year and decorating with festive toppers, tags and paper medallions.  I wrapped my husband's Father's Day gift that way last month because I didn't have any non-girly wrapping paper in the house, and it seemed like a great way to recycle all the brown paper grocery bags I have.  This is the first holiday gift topper I've made.  It seems early to be making them, but I never have time once the holidays get close.

I made the paper medallions by scoring and accordian-folding strips of patterned paper and securing with hot glue.  "Joy" was cut with my Cricut Explore from Create a Critter 2.  I'm linking this project to the Cut It Up challenges blog, where the challenge this week is to use a word or phrase as the focal point of your project.  


  1. I love it! What a great idea, too. Now you just have to find a place to store it where it won't get squished.
