Oh how I love everything that the artist behind Orange You Lucky! creates. And once a year for the past few years she has created and shared free cute holiday gift tags that you can print and cut out. Just use a color printer and some card stock and you’re on your way! You could wrap your presents in super simple plain kraft paper and that have these gift tags be the focal point!
Why oh why can’t someone build me a portal to Japan so I can buy a new Japanese craft book every day? At least in the mean time we have eBay!

Check out these teeny tiny plastic sweets sold by Etsy seller misssapporo. And what are these little cuties for you ask? As far as I can tell they were designed to drive me insane with jeaolusy that I can’t own every single one of them. Ha! Seriously though. I believe they are from Japan and are used to make adorable kawaii “Fruits-style” jewelry, barrettes, etc.
