Christmas – Happily Ever Crafter

Merry Monday #15: Quick and Easy Gift Tags!

2014-12-21 1 crafts monday

Welcome back to another week of Merry Monday! This is the last video in the series. Can you believe that Christmas is only 3 days away?? This is the point that you are wishing you had just purchased one really expensive gift instead of a few different things¬†for each person on your list. It’s time to WRAP it up (pun, intended ūüôā )

Quick and easy has been my motto for the last few weeks. ¬†I continue the trend in today’s video: ¬†Quick and Easy Gift Tags! These are so much nicer than those sticker sheets (I can never seem to match them to my wrapping paper). ¬†Customize to your hearts content.

Here’s your video (let’s¬†pretend I used the correct date in the intro, OOPS)

Merry Monday #14

Merry Monday #14 is coming up!  Hang in there, I wanted to get this post up before I get busy with after school activities and dinner!

If you are looking for quick and easy little cards for any gifts that are going into gift bags this project is for you. ¬†I don’t know about you but, I have lots of small gifts that are going to my kid’s teachers, coaches, and bus drivers. ¬†I needed something quick that the kids could write their names on before gifting. ¬†I didn’t have time to create full sized cards. ¬†All of these gifts are being delivered sometime this week–starting this evening with PSR. ¬†Whoa. ¬†The time is flying! ¬†Are you all caught up? ¬†I’m trying to stay on track but, it’s getting a little tricky.

Thank You’s for November

If you placed an order with me in November you should have received your Thank You note from me this week.  If you have not received it yet I hope that you enjoy the sneak peek!

I started with the card below and decided it needed just a bit more detail.  So, I ran the stamped white piece through the Big Shot with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.  It added some more texture which is just what it needed. Remember, if you place an order with me I will mail you a handstamped (by me) card the first week of the following month.  Now is the time to get your order placed!  In case you missed the news that was announced, there is a End of Year Closeout Sale going on now.  Visit this page to view all of the SALE items!  Get TONS of stuff up to 80% off.

Today I am showing you¬†a couple of cute tags that I created recently. ¬†We are all about to get knee deep in plenty of commitments, parties, and the overall festivities of the holiday season. So, let’s get a jump on our Holiday crafting now while we¬†can still breathe. ¬†How does that sound? ¬†ūüôā

Here are the supplies that you will need to complete the tag on the left:

Cut your tag base (2″ x 3 3/4″) next, using your scissors snip the corners of the top of your tag. ¬†Punch the tree out of the center. ¬†Using real red ink stamp your star image onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock. ¬†Next, ink the word “merry” from the stamp “a merry little wish” with your Garden Green Marker and stamp that under your star. ¬†Punch out with your 1″ circle punch. ¬†Staple your circle image onto your tag. ¬†Punch a hole in the center of the top of the tag and string your baker’s twine through it. ¬†Ta da, you have completed tag #1!

Here are the supplies that you will need to complete the tag on the right:

Cut Cherry Cobbler card stock for your tag base (2″ x 4″). ¬†Snip the corners at the top of your tag. ¬†Cut Whisper White card stock to 2″ x 2 1/2″ and stamp your “to/from” at the bottom. Attach this piece to your tag base. ¬†Punch the top of the tag with your hole punch and slide your Cherry Cobbler ribbon through (about 6″) next, tie your baker’s twine into a bow around your Cherry Cobbler ribbon. ¬†Punch one 2 1/2″ circle from your Under the Tree paper and attach to your tag base. ¬†Lastly, punch a tree from a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and then punch that out with a 2 1/2″ circle punch. ¬†Attach this piece over your designer paper with dimensionals. ¬†Voila! ¬†You have created a totally cute tag that will look great on top of any gift you plan to give this season!

I hope that you are getting some SIMPLE (completely doable) project ideas from me. ¬†It’s not about the hours of crafting that you put into your projects it’s only about the finished product. Your recipients will know that you care enough about them that you went the extra mile! ¬†No generic sticker “to/from” tags. ¬†ūüôā
