OHdeerME Crafty Kits from Freckled Fawn

Freckled Fawn Autumn OHdeerME Kit

Freckled Fawn Autumn OHdeerME Kit

Filled with enticing tags and tapes, one of my favorite online supply shops is Freckled Fawn.

It’s a store fit for crafty imaginations, creative gift wrappers, and those only slightly obsessed with the wonderful world of washi tape. Ahem…

Beyond Doe’s delightful collection—hello woodgrain and arrows and birds on a wire—Freckled Fawn puts together seasonal bundles of indie goods and supplies called OHdeerME Kits.

To the aforementioned gang of craftmongers, these kits are way better than a box of chocolates.

I mean look at that Autumn lot (up top), wooden leaves, cork clouds! I don’t yet know what I’d do with them but that’s hardly the point. Amiright?

The OHdeerME Kits do have a tendency to sell out so act quickly if you wish to claim one.

It should come as no surprise, I have a slight obsession with chevrons. I’m not the only one. You too? From skirts to swimsuits, rugs to pillows, they’ve turned up everywhere this summer.

As Bob Ross would say, “everyone loves a happy little zigzag.” Well I imagine he would.

This roundup of gift wrap related chevrons has been known to make a person giddy. You’ve been warned.

Free Printable Mother's Day Gift Tags by Fellow Fellow

Printable Mother’s Day Gift Tags, by Claire of Fellow Fellow

Hopefully you have your little something for Mother’s Day figured out by now (psst… if not you’ve got until Sunday). To dress up your gift, these tags by Fellow Fellow are the perfect finishing touch. And the best part? You only need a printer and some scissors to make them yours.

Appreciation for all things Fellow Fellow has become a trend around here. Claire’s creations have a beautiful simplicity about them, whether they be neon feathers, DIY planters, or these pretty Mother’s Day gift tags. Love how she’s layered a couple and chosen a simple bakers twine to tie them up. A spot of tape on the back works great too.

Head to Fellow Fellow to download a copy and complete your pretty package for Mom!

Wrapping Paper by Mr. Boddington’s Studio

If you haven’t started yet, it’s time to get wrapping!

Of all the paper in all the land Mr. Boddington’s has my heart this Christmas. Extra points for the chevron pattern? Well of course! What can I say, I love a happy zig-zag.

Their wrapping paper is sold by the sheet in mix and match sets of 5 or 10. That’s right you pick the ones you like most! My five pack would look something like this: 3 Red Chevrons, 1 Rudolph at The Disco, and 1 Big Johns Christmas Trees.

If Hanukkah is your holiday of choice this December, Mr. Boddington’s also makes an adorable hand-drawn paper for you too featuring matzos, Menorahs, and more!

And let’s not forget, a proper present needs a proper tag. More chevrons!
