Make it special

I’m a firm believer that the wrapping should be just as special as the gift is. Maybe even more so really. I love adding a personal touch to my gift wrapping especially at Christmastime. This season I’m all about vintage book page everything! I’ve created book page projects in the past, but this Christmas season I’ve really stepped it up. So far I’ve made a Miniature Book Page Wreath, Magnolia Wreath and a Book Page Ornament. When I thought about my Christmas gift wrap an idea suddenly came to me – oversized book page name tag cutouts.

  • Find a font that you like.
  • Enlarge the font to desired size. Type gift recipients name and and print.
  • Trim around printed name and tape it to vintage book page.
  • Cutout name
  • Use fine tip glue applicator to apply name to gift package.

How cute is this? You didn’t think I would leave myself off of the list did you?

The oversize book page name tag cutouts really pop on the packages. I chose basic brown kraft paper because it makes all of the other elements the star of the show.


As if the book page name tag cutouts weren’t perfect enough, don’t forget to add super cute embellishments too. They don’t need to be expensive either. Look for packaged items at dollar stores, HomeGoods and the Dollar Spot. On the gift below I found the cute mini trees in a package of 10 for $1.00. The wooden tags had 6 different phrases for $2.00. Who doesn’t love jingle bells at Christmastime? This ribbon was really garland.

Faux fur mitten ornament – $1.00.

  1. These are so awesome! I love this idea so much! I think this would be a fun project for kids to do. In the past, I have let my boys cut out felt shapes to glue onto bags. I think old book pages would be amazing to do this with! I can’t wait to try it.


  2. I just love original ideas and this one is brand new to me! It’s so adorable. And love how the name tags pop against the brown wrapping paper. You’ve created the cutest packages for this year’s tree. Nobody will want to open them…cuz they are soooo cute! Thanks for sharing your great idea and for hopping with us! Happy holidays to you and yours! ~~ Susie from The Chelsea Project

  3. This is so creative! And the book pages stand out so nicely against the kraft paper! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving week and Christmas season!

  4. SO many great ideas!!! Not only the book page name, but those cute little adornments you’ve found. I need to keep my eyes open for those. Thanks for the inspiration. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hugs, Lyn

  5. What cute wrapping ideas Vicki! I love the personalization!

  6. These are all so creative and I love the way you repurposed the book pages too – super cute ideas as always ladies. I hope there is going to be an upcoming book page series because all of these ideas are spot on! Hugs, CoCo
