    All you have to do is "close" the video in the upper right corner and it will show just the article and instructions

  • deesebree 18 Dec, 2008

    What is with the stupid video overriding all the craft articles?

    These tags are so adorable, and can be kept for years and passed on to other family members. Where do you find the scalloped gift tags? Can you make them yourself?

  • JaimeeDrew 9 Dec, 2008

    This is such a cute idea. I don't have time for it this year, but I bought some from Caroline's Etsy store- so cute, thanks!
