"I’m the type of person who thinks a gift is even more special if it’s wrapped beautifully and adorned with a special tag or bow. It’s so easy to create beautiful tags with Graphic 45’s 12 Days of Christmas collection. With just a few supplies, you can make layered tags that will impress your holiday gift recipients. I’ve included a bonus video on easy-to-make bows as well." -Annette
