Christmas Tags (Vanessa)

Wow! A new's a Christmas miracle!

Back in October, Shannon had a great gift idea for Christmas. TAGS. I decided that is what I would be giving neighbors this year.

Here I am mid project after tag #800 and wondering what I had gotten myself into!

And here is the finished project:

Supplies used:
Delightful Decorations Stamp Set (2009 Holiday Mini)
Christmas Punch Stamp set (hostess set)
Oval punch, square punch, ornament punch, tag punch
Kraft, white, Real Red and Old Olive paper
Real Red polka dot grosgrain ribbon
SU Clear envelopes
Fiskars paper crimper

My fingers were a little sore after all the punching and tying of the ribbon. I did have one neighbor tell me she loved it so much that she wasn't going to use them, just look at them. And another neighbor actually used one of them on their gift to us :) That made it ALL worth it. Now that I have all the stuff, I can do it again. I just need a year to recover!
