HAPPY Holidays: Quick & Easy {& Crafty} New Year’s Neighbor Gift!

Hey there TT&J fans, I want to share a neighbor gift!

We hope y’all had a FAB Christmas! It’s not time to slow down yet though (almost!) because we’ve got one last holiday to round up 2012… New Years Eve!

And we’re simply thrilled to be here today to share a simple New Years gift for your favorite crafter.

Before we get started, let’s quickly introduce ourselves, shall we? We are twin sisters Kelli & Kristi of Lolly Jane. Our little corner of blogland is filled with home improvement projects, craft tutorials, holiday decor, recipes and loads of good furniture before and afters. We just love how small touches of decor, a newly refurbished piece of furniture or a fresh coat of paint on the wall can customize a space and instantly make it yours. Well now that you know a bit about us, let’s get started (:


We thought it would be fun to pass out a few neighbor gifts to start out the new year on a playful note to some of our closer friends, something more than a yummy baked good, and something that they could actually use. We know we can never have too much in our craft stash so we decided to pass out every crafters must-have items to get their 2013 started right!

Washi tape and bakers twine are so versatile and one can never have too much acrylic paint, right? Top with our (free) printable tag, tie on with bakers twine from your own stash and you’re set:

Simply print these tags on an 8.5 x 11 piece of white card stock:

You can even cut the bottom of the tag along the mustache line to play it up a little (;

These tags are fun attached to an individual craft item or topped on a basket filled with crafty clutter for someone who will be getting her serious craft on in 2013. Enjoy!
