THEY ARE FUN! They are quick, easy, instantly gratifying, you can use scraps, and it’s a reason to try all the cuts on the carts that you’ve wanted to do but didn’t have a use for. The Santa tags will go on the boys main gift. They were done with Jolly holidays (tag at 4 inch, Santa at about 2.5), the candy cane and stockings are from Christmas cheer, and the ornament and branch are done using the tag feature on Joys of the Season (4 inch) and the glitter window technique. If you haven’t yet, try making tags.
This is a “thanks snow much” card for a friend. The front is shaped, I put the back through a cuttlebug, used 3D paint for eyes and mouth, and used pearls for the buttons. The inside stamp is Stampin Up. The file is available below for a limited time. Thanks for looking!
Each little box holds 3 pencils, and 3 boxes can be cut from one 12 x 12 paper. The eraser is just on the tag with a single sticky dot.
I used white stazon ink to to “frost” the glass, then red vinyl for the images. The images are from Christmas Cheer. I used DS to weld some hooks to the ornaments and cut out a snowflake from the large one. The blocks came with a big opening on the top, and I filled it with a stand of 50 white lights. It was my first time using my bowdabra so my tails ended up a little short, but the bow came out nice – hopefully it doesn’t smooshed in the gift bag. I can’t wait to make one now for myself!
