Tags, Bags, & Treats

Every year I have a class to make some Christmas tags, a few decorated gift bags and some treats. Here are just a few of the things we made this year.

I used some retired DSP for this tag background and then fussy cut the snowmen out of this years Santa’s Workshop paper  which was so popular it sold out quickly. I love fussy cutting so I cut out the snowmen for all of the stampers who came to the class. The snowflakes are cut from the Blizzard Thinlit Die which is 4″ x 5″ so you get a flurry of snowflakes all at once.

The idea for this tag came from Patty Bennett. I made a few changes to make my Santa down the chimney tag. The feet are punched from a retired heart punch, and the bag from the owl builder punch. The stamped tag is from the set Sincerely Santa.

Another set of tags using the Santa Workshop DSP.  Most of the images were die cut using Santa’s Signpost Framelits. There was a little more fussy cutting on some of the images that didn’t have a matching die.

This snowman treat holder is one of my favorites and is done using the envelope punch board and a few punches. He opens up to reveal a chocolate treat. Can you identify all of the punches that were used?

This again uses Santa’s Workshop DSP and 3 of the Tiny Treat Boxes put together with  glue dots.

The center box holds a tea light with one of the wreath embellishments on top.

Making Christmas Bright stamp set was used to make this gift bag which would easily hold a gift card along with a small treat. The string of lights was perfect for stamping on the gold striped bags and markers used to color the bulbs. 

There were a few more projects which I have not photographed yet.

I had a very quiet Christmas. My son and his family are coming from Kentucky. They left yesterday so we decided to have our Christmas today, the 26th. My youngest son was in Jacksonville and my daughter was at her dad’s house. The KY group should have gotten here around midnight but at 9:30 last night my son called and said the car broke down in Georgia. They had actually just witnessed a two car accident so although a breakdown is bad news it could have been worse. They called AAA for a tow and were checking into a hotel. I hope they will find someone early who can fix the car and that it’s not something serious.

Thanks for stopping by
