2nd Day of Christmas: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (Judy Garland) Gift Tag

You guys. Two days until Christmas! 

For this "2nd Day of Christmas" gift tag, I'm kind of killing 2 birds with 1 stone. There are so many "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" versions I enjoy from Ella Fitzgerald to the family traditional Winnie & Carnie Wilson, but my favorite seems to always go to the classic, Judy Garland. Not only do I love Judy Garland's voice & Christmas song, but also the legendary Wizard of Oz.

When I was 3-5 years old, I dressed up as Dorothy 3 years in a row for Halloween. She's kind of a big deal in my book, as I'm sure she's played big roles in some of your lives, too! I still have my little red ruby shoes with loads of red glitter in my closet, so this gift wrapping paper surely caught my eye to use for this gift tag. Do you notice anything else familiar about the gift wrapping in regard to the Wizard of Oz? How about that yellow brick road "ribbon"? Yep, this gift went all out in Wizard of Oz & Christmas in spirit of Judy Garland. 

You're welcome, Judy--this one's for you. 

Merry Christmas, enjoy, & tomorrow will be the final gift wrapping post! Hope these have helped give you ideas so far!
