{Oh What Fun} Tag Project Kit

We're sharing all about Christmas tags today over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration.

I invited my Card Club over at the end of November for an exclusive "card club only" event where each of them could make 5 tags from the Oh What Fun Tag Project Kit. (They also made 3 cards from another kit...but I will share that another day!) This tag kit is currently on sale for $14.70 (reg. $21). Stamp set is sold separately.

Here's a picture of the set up. Each of the ten tags had their own little bucket which included all of the pieces needed and instructions for each tag.

These are all of the tags when completed. For these tags, I basically just made them as shown in the instructions. It made it easier for my club gals to copy exactly if they wanted to.

I had some leftover tags and it has been so nice having a cute tag to grab when I want to give some goodies to some special people.

Wrap it Up!

Just popping in today for a quick look at a fun (and super easy) gift idea for some of my club members. I have a small group of club gals that I meet with regularly at my mother-in-law's home and I wasn't able to see them during December, so I thought it would be fun to give them a little gift...until we meet again in January!

I got this idea from Erica Cerwin at Pink Buckaroo Designs. It's just a fun way to wrap up a package of twine!

  • Cut your DSP 5-1/2" x 3-1/2". Score lengthwise at 1-3/4" and fold over. 
  • Staple once on each side. 
  • Glimmer Paper strip is 5-1/2" x 1/2".
  • I used the Peaceful Pines stamp set with Mossy Meadow Ink. 
  • The large circle is 1-3/4". 
  • Merry Christmas is stamped in Real Red (sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes). 
  • The sentiment is cut out using the Bitty Banner Framelits.

The front part of the card tucks underneath the heart circle...

White Christmas

It's December 1st! Why not start it off with a Christmas card to help get you in the mood?

This is one of the cards we made at November's card making night. I also used it for my Christmas-themed swap card with my team last week.

Christmas card making is SO MUCH FUN!
