December 21

Happy Monday!

Can you believe we are in the final few days before Christmas?
Are you ready?
Are you still making last minute projects?
Or are you ahead of the game and starting your project folder for next year?

Girl Friday Kelly has a project that is sure to inspire you 
and it's perfect for little gifts for neighbors, teachers, mailmen, the UPS guy, your co-workers, etc!
She used Scallop Tag Fri-Dies, Star Fri-Dies, Bell Tags Fri-Dies and Sleigh Bells stamps 
and they all happen to be on sale right now while supplies last!

Here's a sure-fire way to achieve a luxurious look for any gift tags you need to make this season. The secret? Layer 'em up! Just grab any small/medium/large die to make your own custom combination. Or make sure to pick dies that show through to the next layer.
Here, I've chosen the Bell Tag Fri-Die for the base, then the Stars Fri-Die, and finally the Scallop Tag Fri-Die. Even though the star die is not officially a tag, you'd never know the difference when they are all layered and tied up with ribbon. So simple!  

I embossed the bell in white with the Sleigh Bells stamp and ran some watercolor over it.

The space across the middle of the bell is a perfect place to write out the "to" information. I wrote the "from" information on a different layer (the star die) just to give the presentation a little more depth. You can't see here, but on the darker green tag in the back I wrote a quick note to the recipient.
These layered tags really help make the simple wrapped pretzel rod a little more special! Remember, you can do this with any set of small/medium/large shapes, for any occasion. I just heard back from my son's teacher who said the tags reminded her of little charms. Love that!

Positively delicious!!
Be sure to visit Kelly's blog and leave her some love, 
and she's spreading a little extra holiday cheer that you won't want to miss :)
