Days of Christmas: Day 1

Welcome to my Days of Christmas Celebration! We'll have 25 days in all, so I hope you are ready for this!

Today, I've decided to feature a stamp set. This set is from the Holiday Mini Catalog. It's called Tags til Christmas. Not only can you make tags for your gifts, but you can make Christmas cards among other projects.

Here is a card made with the set. I chose the Snowman image from the set, I used a marker to ink it up, because I did not want the "to:/from:" to show, I just wanted the image. I also used a really cute paper in the mini catalog called, Candy Cane Christmas. You'll see more of this paper in future posts. That shimmer you see on the Snowman image, I used our Dazzling Diamonds glitter and 2way glue pen, it's so sparkly!

*I'll posts supplies at the bottom of the post*

This fun project I made is a treat package, or you can use it to wrap something small like earrings, a necklace, or a gift card. I used our Scallop envelope Big Shot die to make the box, with a little alteration. I'll post a tutorial of how to create this later.

Here are four 3x3 gift cards I made. Aren't they so small and cute?! I love little cute things. I've packaged them in a mini brown paper sack with a gorgeous bow. I cut a bit of the top of the bag off, then used my Scallop Border punch to make a fun edge! Isn't that fun?!
