Tags, Bags & Boxes....

This weekend was my annual Tags, Bags & Boxes Workshop.  The girls seemed to enjoy themselves and they made lots of goodies!!!
Tags....self-stick, ran through my printer using Pharmacy font ( and stamped using various stamps....they also made tags cut using my Cricut and Vanilla Creme & White Daisy cardstock.  We used Vintage Christmas stamp set (one of my FAVES!!!).

Tote boxes that CTMH used to sell....

The base of the large one measures 8"x5" and its top is approximately another 3.5"....Cranberry, New England Ivy, Olive and White Cardstock and Evensong Creative Basics paper packet (retired).  I used Holiday Trinkets stamp set as well as Feathery Flakes stamped using second generation stamping.  Cranberry, Desert Sand and New England Ivy Inks. 

The base of the medium tote is 6"x4" and the top is approximately another 2.5"....I used the Jingle paper pack, No Peeking stamp set (retired) and Tulip Ink.

Bag-a-lope (a bag made from an envelope) made up of a 5"x7" envelope....finished size measures about 4"x7"....random stamped using Holiday Jingle stamp set and Holiday Red Ink, Olive Ink, Chocolate Ink, Creme Brulee Ink and Twilight Ink.  The ribbon is from a LSS (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE wide ribbon).  I scalloped the top (from picture you can't see) using the corner rounder.

Bag-a-lope using a large envelope (approximately 9"x11").....finished size measures 6.5"x7" but we cut off the top 3".  I used Hollydays paper packet (retired) and Hollydays Stickease (retired).  The ribbon is from Wal-Mart.  I used the corner rounder to make the scallops.  We used baby powder to take the "sticky" off the back of the Stickease so they could stuff it with their present and then close it with Tombow....the weight of the Stickease actually keeps it closed pretty well.

Craft Bag using Traditional Holiday paper packet (one of my all-time FAVORITES, it's retired and I'm running out...boohooo!!), Card Chatter - Christmas stamp set, Cocoa Grosgrain Ribbon, My Legacy Writers to stitch and Desert Sand Ink.

Mailbox using Hollydays paper packet (retired), Liquid Applique, Craft Heater, Corner Rounder & Star dimensional element from Flurry.  I got the mailboxes a while back from Target's $ Spot.  We left the front panel blank so they could personalize it with an initial once they decide who's the lucky recipient!

Clear Bag....using Jingle paper packet, Holiday Trinkets stamp set, Creme Brulee & Tulip Ink, White Organdy Ribbon.

Snowman Can....using Deck the Halls paper packet (retired), Flurry Dimensional Elements, Twinkle Brads, Liquid Applique, All Decked Out stamp set, Christmas Scripts stamp set (retired), Black, Cranberry and Grey Wool Ink.  I colored his carott nose using Watercolor Pencils (soft orange).  The can is an old Similac can from when my 2-yr old was a baby.

Candy Cane topper....I used Festivities stamp set, Cranberry and New England Ivy Ink.

Stocking Gift Card Holder....I used Jingle paper packet and traced a stocking I bought at HL.  I also used Tulip ink to edge distress the pieces.

4-Pocket Box....I used drink holders from Chick-fil-A and one of CTMH's card kits, Whimsical Holiday (retired).  We just put stickease around the box to hide any logos and traced the front panel onto the card bases and cut out.
