This fall, Rachel of Lines Across launched Let’s Wrap Stuff, a website devoted to all things gift wrap related. To celebrate its launch, Rachel challenged me and a select group of talented bloggers to come up with a creative gift wrap idea using plain kraft paper. Who doesn’t love brown paper packages tied up with string? Here’s my project and you can check out all 24 creative kraft paper gift wrap ideas at the bottom of this post.
My name is Kelly and I am addicted to chai tea lattes. We have a Tassimmo machine so I can make the single serve portions at home but every once in a while I go out to have a latte with a friend. A few weeks ago I took an Instagram photo while at Starbucks and inspiration struck.
The baristas wrote our names on our cups and that reminded me of names on gift tags.

1. Download my Coffee Or Latte Christmas Gift Tags Silhouette Studio cut file. This file is only for your personal use and it will only work if you have the Silhouette Studio software.
2. Use the Silhouette Portrait, Mat and Studio software to cut out the different pieces. I used white to cut the container tops, craft paper to cut the container sleeves and patterned paper and glitter cardstock to cut out the containers. Each container is also backed with a container cut from white cardstock.
3. Apply adhesive to the cuts (except for the white cardstock container bases) and assemble them to create the containers.
4. Use a pen to write your to/from on the container sleeve. I used a Sharpie fine tip pen.
If you liked these gift tags, you may also like the gift tags that I created using scrapbook paper scraps.
