Birthday Paper Doily Tag

Birthday Paper Doily Tag from #12MonthsOfMartha

Today is a very special day… it’s Mr. Woodsy’s birthday! We typically don’t exchange BIG birthday gifts and sometimes we don’t exchange any gifts at all. This year I decided to splurge and get Mr. Woodsy a GoPro camera. He has been eyeing that camera for years, and well I finally made his dreams come true. I wanted to give him the camera before our cruise (last week). It just so happened that the camera and accessories arrived at our mailbox last Monday, and I was off work. So operation pick up Mr. Woodsy’s birthday gift and surprise him was under way! I got the package, rushed home to wrap it, and then made this quick and easy Birthday Paper Doily Tag for the top of the package.

Yesterday, I shared on how to use the Martha Stewart Crafts Circle Edge Punch Starter Set (and I’m also giving away one to one lucky reader). If you watched my video yesterday you know how easy it is to use this revolutionary circled edge punch! No cutting paper required… just set the size and punch! Within minutes you have a beautiful paper doily tag fit for any Birthday gift!

Using the Circle Edge Punch begin to punch out an 8-inch doily.

Continue punching out the 8-inch neon color paper. Then cut a 6-inch paper doily using the circle edge punch.

Then, take your wrapped gift and 6-inch and 8-inch doily outside to use the spray adhesive. *Trust me–don’t ever use spray adhesive inside or near anything. EVERYTHING will get sticky!

Adhere the 6-inch doily to the 8-inch doily. Then place it on the package to get an idea of how you want to place the doily on the package.

Lightly spray the back of the 8-inch paper doily and then carefully stick the doily onto the package. Hold it down with pressure so that the doily bends.

Then using a fancy pen write a message on the paper doily tag! Find your favorite piece of ribbon and wrap it around the box.

And that’s it… that is how you make a quick and easy Birthday Paper Doily Tag for someone special in your life! And because everyone might be wondering what Mr. Woodsy thought of his gift…

Mr. Woodsy opening his gift from

Well, he was beyond surprised. I left the wrapped gift on the dining room table where he sits for dinner. When he got home I was in the other room. It took him a few minute to realized it was on the table. He asked what it was and I said “it came in the mail today”. It really did, I didn’t lie about that. Then he asked who it was for… well hmmm… there are only two of us in our home and my birthday isn’t for over a month. So I encouraged him to open it… and well. He was shocked and I’m pretty sure a tear came rolling down my cheek. I’m always an emotional mess whether happy or sad! lol. I cry at everything (I’ve always been like this).

  1. Love it! I’m in favor of putting doilies pretty much everywhere. I have the Martha doily silkscreen adhesives and I have big plans for them. 🙂

  2. LOVE IT!!! I pinned it to my Gift Wrapping Board!! xoxo

  3. So cute! I love all the different ways everyone is using the paper doilies!

  4. I love this tool! I got to try it out in December – I love doilies too…so it is perfect!

  5. It’s all about the packaging – but a camera doesn’t hurt either! Beautiful wrapping – glad he liked his gift!

  6. What a sweet post! I especially loved the part about the tear at the end. And your gift-wrap and doily tag were just the perfect dressing for such a fantastic gift! Happy b-day to Mr. Woodsy.
