Christmas Tags

I'm sorry I haven't posted any projects since last week, but I haven't had the time to sit and stamp since I finished those wedding favors. I was busy making ti leaf skirts for my girls' hula performance for the Thunderbirds at Hickam this weekend and my oldest had to prepare for her Black Belt exam. I am proud to say that my 10 year old daughter officially holds a Black Belt in Karate! Woohoo!

Okay, back to the project. I decided to work on making tags and a box to hold them in as my contribution to the Silent Auction for our upcoming Card Camp. The tags were easy to make and I made 5 of each design. I just used my punches: wide oval, scallop oval, large oval, 1 3/4" circle, scallop square, scallop circle, 1 3/8" circle, and 1 1/4" circle. I used the stamp sets: Tiny Talk & Year-Round Fun II (both are retired sets). As for the box, I had to make my own dimensions. I've been seeing similar boxes on other people's blogs and I figured I'd give it a try (and I remembered to write down the dimensions...yay!). For those of you who might be interested, here are the dimensions:

- 4 3/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock (score 1 1/4" all around)

Insert Divider:
- 2 3/16" x 10 3/4" piece of cardstock (score at: 1 7/8", 3 1/8", 4 3/8", 6 3/8", 7 5/8", 8 7/8")

- 3 3/4" x 7 1/2" piece of cardstock (score a little before the 3/4" all around); then cut 1 1/4" inwards all around.
- 2 1/8" x 5 15/16" piece of DSP; cut 3/8" inwards all around.
- 2 1/4" x 6" window sheet
- decorate as desired
