Wednesday already.

Three days in to our little Brown Paper Packages event.

I can’t even believe it.

You know what I can’t even believe more than that? Those cute girls over at Eighteen25 shared a ‘100 Days ‘Til Christmas’ ABC Family photo on Instagram yesterday.

What the french toast?

It’s comin’ folks.

It’ll be here before you can say ‘Bob’s your uncle.’

I know there are tons of you getting ready for Christmas, whether it’s decorations or gifts, there’s been a lot of Christmas stuff flying off the ol’ KBS shelves lately. ;)

Well, this week is the perfect time to start thinking of some fun Christmas ideas in the ‘Brown Paper’ genre. Take a look at what Layle has made!

Layle says: Although this deer cut file is part of the Happy Camper kit, it screamed Christmas to me, so I decided to use it for a Christmas tag.  In fact, I cut the head directly on the tag itself, making the tag come together quickly.  A little washi tape, Christmas stickers and red bakers twine – it really couldn’t get any easier than this!

I couldn’t agree more Layle! I am in love with this tag for so many reasons. The simplicity. The negative space head. The kraft tag. It’s just wonderful! Awesome for a gift or in your Christmas album…or both. Why choose?

Layle says:
A neutral package and another cut file from the Happy Camper kit used for Christmas!  I cut the tree from a woodgrain piece of paper, glued a doily to the top of the package, added the tree along with a wood veneer star at the top and wrapped it up (literally & figuratively!) with the tinsel trim.

This is fantastic! Simple, but so festive! Love the look of the tree cut in the woodgrain paper. And wrapped with tinsel? It’s the finishing touch–like putting the star on top of the tree…for which I do love the wood star on top of this tree. :)


And now it’s time for another giveaway!
