I think it goes without saying that Martha makes her own gift tags. I bet she also makes her own wrapping paper from wood pulp that she gets after planting, growing and harvesting her own trees. That Martha, I bet she does it all.
I have yet to plant, grow, cut down or otherwise process a tree into paper, but I did skip right to the crafting part and make some homemade gift tags for this Christmas season. I've wanted to try this for years; after all, I put so much thought into each gift and it's wrapping paper, that it makes sense to give the same attention to detail for the gift's tag.
