Happy, happy end of the week! It has been a busy week for me and I am glad to take a breather and enjoy some downtime.
I am still in "little gifts" mode and made some chocolate dipped sugar cookies with different types of Christmas sprinkles and then packaged them two to a bag and tied them off with some fun holiday tags. I have added these to my treats basket and they are ready to go.
For each one of the tags, I used the awesome Fancy Pants Blissful Blizzard line. I love everything about this line as it lends itself to everything from whimsy to elegant. Each tag measures 2.5" x 4".
This tag was easy peasy as the paper is printed with all of the little elements on it and all I needed to do was add the print tag to a base tag using some Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots. I wrapped some twine around the tag and then tied it off with a button and bow. I added a Tombow Power Tab behind the button to hold it firmly in place. I used a little more twine and a smaller button to attach the tag to the bag. I stamped the to/from from the Paper Smooches Word Salad set and Merry Christmas from the Christmas Sampler set.
The next two tags were created just like the first in that I adhered the print piece to the solid using Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots. The accent stripes on both tags are from the Blissful Blizzard Tape Stickers sheet. The tape stickers were self adhesive but just to be sure that they would not come up I added some Tombow Mono Multi to each strip. I cut the poinsettias out with my Silhouette Cameo and this file. The leaves are cut from this one and that one. I used Tombow Mono Multi to attach the leaves and Tombow Power Tabs to attach the flowers. The tags were tied to the bags with twine.
Remember crafters, don't forget your package delivery people, little gifts like this are the perfect way to say thank you for their awesome service.
