Ready for my project? Of course you are, that's why you are here!!! I'm going to get you ready for your holiday gift wrapping!!! Today I have for you...


Holiday Tags

A fabulous way to use up your scraps and dress up your gift packages at the same time!!! Here I have used scraps of "Deck the Halls" dsp to dress up these little tags. The best part about these: they are super quick & easy!! I began by trimming my scrap cardstock to 2 1/4 x 3 3/4 inch pieces. After snipping the upper corners, I decorated the cardstock with dsp scraps, some decorative punched edges & punched tags. The "To & From" was stamped using the Hostess Set Peaceful Season. I finished each tag by punching a hole at the top of each tag and tied them up with Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding & Linen Thread.

Now that we have the tags, we need...

Paper Bows



You can't give a gift that isn't tied up with a gorgeous bow. And, REALLY, this is gorgeous! Make sure you come back tomorrow, I'll be posting a step by step photo tutorial!!! I promise you, these are SO easy. You could crank out a dozen in no time at all.

Before you head off to the lovely and VERY talented Theresa, I want to thank each and every one of you who have been so supportive of me. I love reading your comments, they are all so special to me. As I've begun my new business venture I'm thrilled to have you by my side. I'm so excited about CAS Classroom, I hope you are too. Before I go and get even more sappy, go on, head over to Theresa's blog, she has something AMAZING for you today!!!!
