You’re armed with paper and ribbon and you’re about to pop Elf on for the umpteenth time: let the gift wrapping marathon commence. Like most years, there’ll be a moment when you’ve got one knee/elbow/foot holding down the paper while you simultaneously reach for the scissors and remove sticky tape from your hair, only this time it’ll be better – this time there are kitschy crochet tags.
Add these mid-century-inspired makes to your giftwrap to add that next-level handmade touch to your presents this year, or hang them on the Christmas tree.
