Last year, I secretly struggled with bouts of insecurity. In spite of a font of mine going viral and crashing my site, I couldn’t bear to call myself a type designer. I was a fraud who just lucked out. For the first time in a while, I was questioning if I really knew what the heck I was doing. I was trying to deal with what I later discovered was Impostor Syndrome. Sorry if this sounds like a cry for help or a fish for compliments. Trust me, it’s not. (I’m okay now, so we can move on.)

Earlier this month, Instax invited me to teach a bunch of avid crafters Christmas crafts at SM Mall of Asia. It was a bit daunting–standing in the middle of the largest mall in Asia–talking about memories and how to share them through crafts. I taught two different crafts at the workshop that afternoon. Crazy me got inspired by Santa Claus and his belt. Here’s my Santa-inspired take on gift tags, to make your gift-wrapping a bit more personalized!
