Printable Floral Tags | Packagery
Have y’all got your gift wrapping boxes ready for the upcoming year? No? Just me?! Haha! Well I have started with some truly gorgeous paper I found at a cheap store (it was such a find, woo!) I even bought this awesome paper cutting thing that looks a bit like a tooth brush without the bristles - you simply slide it through the paper to cut it. It’s truly awesome. I think I need to now add these floral tags to my box. I love the vintage floral designs and I believe any recipients would love them too!
