Christmas Tags — Prep for Craft Show

The Silhouette Online Store has all their shapes for 50¢ ea now through Monday (11/28/11) and I went a little crazy. I committed the cardinal sin of scrap booking last weekend - I had a party for my son's birthday and forgot to take any pictures - too busy living to record the living I guess. Because it was a Harry Potter Party I was able to get a lot of images from the Silhouette Online Store so when it comes time to tell the story on a layout I will have SOMETHING.

I also went a bit box crazy in preparation for my first real craft show. I purchased pretty much every box that a domino magnet or ornament would fit in nicely. The first box I made was for a set of tags. 

6_bracket_labels_C01131_20509  with a hole added for hanging.
The tree stamp (PSX © 1993 (D-1163)) is retired
but you may be able to find it on eBay or Etsy.

I also used a set of bracket labels to make the tag stamping them and distressing the edges with Old Paper colored Distress Ink.
The dots are Stampin' Up! Sahara Sand, the tree is Mellow Moss, and the To/From is Cranberry Crisp.

I added 6 yards of baker's twine to the box to make it a complete package.

I have a ton of ideas for Christmas gifts, cards and tags. I wish I could be 3 people to get them all created. I should really get back to creating, I only have an hour before "Once Upon a Time" is on - it's our families favorite new show and I don't want to miss it.

Happy Crafting,
