Gift Tags Galore--Christmas Week #3

Hello my friends,

Yesterday, I had a chance to play around with one of my new Christmas stamp sets called Sparkly and Bright. As I was looking through the new catty, I saw this cute project on page 14. It was a Gift Tag box. What a great idea to give to love ones!!!

So I decided to make the gift box using the Sparkly and Bright stamp set. I colour all the images with my markers and stamped them on Whisper White card stock, and then I punched them out with the Small Tag Punch. Then I layer them onto another tag that was punched out with the Large Tag Punch. Then I tied a knot using the Silver and Gold Elastic Cord.

So..what do you think???


Here is sample of all the tags in the box...
