Another Group Post Night? You betcha! Wahoo!!!
This time the team is creating packaging projects with the brand spankin' new "2010 Holiday Tags". I felt like getting super inky last night as I was crafting and ended up making my own wrapping paper. Check it out...
Really not that hard. I keep rolls and rolls of drawing paper stockpiled for Hank. Borrowed a 3 foot sheet. Also had four tags from the set each on different acrylic blocks and assigned to their own color ink pad. Went really quick. Maybe 5 minutes? You know, sometimes you just want to stamp. A card or something might only have a handful of stamped images. Something like this you can really go to town on.
Here's some close up of the tag. That's the Tag Sale 2 die in action. I have two here, the fancy one stacked on top of the more utilitarian "To and From" tag. The snowflake stamp and the "To/From" stamp are from the new set. And lookie here, there's another Limitless Label die in action. I love this one in particular. Very unique.
I've used a lot of PTI ribbon for gift wrapping in the past. Had some fun with it here. The real trick is not in tying the perfect bow, but in trying to get it from going in the trash after the unwrapping is over! It's perfectly good ribbon. It served it's purpose by looking pretty on a gift, so hand it back over.
I know you know what I'm talking about:).
So, does anybody recognize the shape and size of the gift? It's something that you are all very familiar with. Couldn't help myself. What every stamper wants this Christmas.
Be sure to check out all the other fun ideas from the PTI girls. They never fail to bring it. In the meantime, Just Dance 2 is in the house. I'm going to go boogie down. Mama needs some fun and a cocktail.
