Good Morning! Greg and I got home late enough yesterday that I was too tired to finish my project and post it. We went and watched the Giants game with friends, and then went bowling - haven't done that for a LONG time! We totally cannot bowl worth anything, but it was fun, anyway!
This morning I finished up (more or less) and here's the newest flip-top box:
Here's what's inside of it:
It's a bunch of gift tags! They're kind of hard to see in a pile, so here's a couple of pics of them in smaller groups:
They are all made from these fun papers from The Rob and Bob Studio (Provo Craft):
I bought this Christmas slab a couple of years ago because I thought the patterns and colors were so fun and funky. It's been languishing since, though, because I couldn't really make up my mind what I wanted to do with it (sound familiar?). I finally decided gift tags would be fun, and this sheet in particular lent itself well to cutting up individual elements, which I did:
All I did was cut 2" x 3" scraps of cardstock that matched the dp and round the corners. I then cut 1 13/16" x 2 13/16" scraps of the dp itself for the front of the tag, and plain white cardstock for the back of the tag, and rounded the corners and adhered them. Then I cut out elements from the sheet above and added them (sometimes matting, sometimes not). The backs of the tags have elements cut from the tree block paper, and look like this:
I planned to stamp "to" and "from" on them, but I don't have any to/from stamps - can you believe that? Over 300 stamp sets, a slew of individual stamps, and not one to/from stamp! Unbelievable! I have a bunch of alphabets, but I'm too lazy to do it that way, so I'll check the dollar pile o' stamps next time I'm out and see what I can find...
For the hangers of the tags I punched a hole with my Crop-a-dile and threaded "braiding cord" ("like hemp only better", the package says) through it. And that's it for this little project! No stamping - just cut-and-paste! Okay, on to the business of the day! Hope your week goes wonderfully well, and thanks for stopping by!
