Gift Tags!

Gift Tags!  It's really beginning to feel like Christmas is coming and of course, we need gift tags for all our gifts! Stampin' Up's November Paper Pumpkin was an all inclusive kit with 24 gift tags that were beautiful! There are many alternatives demonstrators have posted on turning these into cards, but I loved them just the way they were intended.  Another great gift tag set is the Joy of Giving Project Kit in the 2019 Holiday Catalog. With two exceptions, I followed the plans for the tags as is. I left the gold-foil pieces off to use for another project later, and for the one tag that was supposed to have the gold-foil on white circle deer, I chose to use the stamp "Santa's Workshop". These tags came together very quickly and were a lot less decorative and intricate as the 24 from the November Paper Pumpkin, but they are still charming. I enjoyed capturing my moments thinking of the gifts I'll be giving my loved ones this Christmas

Snowman Season Holiday Treat

Snowman Season Holiday Treat I love this time of year - making, baking, buying holiday treats for friends, co-workers, service people, and family. I live and work in a culturally diverse area and Stampin' Up's Snowman Season stamp set and coordinating Let It Snow Designer Series Paper allow me to create fun cards, tags, etc... that can be either Christmas or Holiday/Winter themed. As a teacher, I wanted to make a tag that was a wish specific to my co-workers yet was still a crafty tag complete with paper and stamping.   The base of the tag is 3x4 Real Red cardstock and I just snipped the corners to make it look more like a tag. Also using Real Red cardstock, I punched out a tag topper using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and adhered it to the back of the 3x4 piece. I had so much retired Real Red ribbon that was thin and would fit through the hole at the top of the tag that I went ahead and used it, but there are many appropriate threads and ribbons you could use -
