The big news today is that there is Free Shipping on orders of $75 or more.
But, I also have a little Christmas creativity to share with you as well. I created and donated a bunch of Christmas Gift Tags to our local ambassadors group who were hosting a holiday kids shop and thought that I would share some of the designs with you today.
I searched my shelf for Christmas themed punched and found that most of them fit perfectly on a 2″ wide tag. The punch that I used on these tags is retired but the current Very Best Trio Punch or the Label Me Lovely Punch would work well also with a little ingenuity. For the Very Best Trio Punch insert one corner and punch, flip the paper over and punch the other side, then insert into the hole punch shape and punch the tag hole. Or, for the Label Me Lovely Punch simply insert the end of the tag into one side of the punch and punch. You may need to cut the paper 1/8″ narrower (1 7/8″) to make it easier to fit into the punch.
This one is made with the Reindeer Dies and is the only die set that I used to create the tags. It took a bit more time to add the harness but he’s so cute that I had to do a few of these. The To and From stamp is almost as old as I am, and I pulled it out for sentimental reasons. If you don’t have one, there are several in various set including the Spruced Up Christmas, Handmade Wishes, Scary Cute, and Celebrate with Tags (which also has a cool tag die!). Or if you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, the November From the North Pole stamp set (this kit was all about tags!) includes To and From stamps.
This tag uses the Penguin Place stamp set which is already out of stock 😦 but the Penguin Builder Punch was still available as I’m typing.
The Deer Builder Punch and coordinating Peaceful Deer stamp were also still available when I check this morning. There is a current Evergreen Border Punch that I think would work for the trees.
Do you have all of your Christmas presents wrapped yet? I would much rather make tags than wrap presents! It’s one of my dreaded Christmas chores, and I can say, with a HUGE sigh of relief, that I am done wrapping and everything is under the tree.
