Last minute gift accessories

Hi Everyone,
I know, as you  read this, you are probably finished buying all your gifts and getting them wrapped or maybe, just maybe, you still have things to finish. Well, as I wrote this post, all I had left to do was to make tags, so, I thought I'd share two things that I made to dress up a gift or a gift bag.

What do you get when you cross a brown, five petal flower, and a beige scalloped circle????

Would you believe a gingerbread man tag??? Isn't this cute and it really takes just a few minutes. After you cut out the shapes get your white pen and just add some faux stitches and zigzags on the hands and feet, add a face and some brads for buttons and your tag is done. Just punch a hole and add ribbon. Quick and easy.

OK here is the other thing I want to show you. I used packing stuff. This stuff is a very flexible foamy sheet. Not bubble wrap. (Don't you like my terms??) I have a really nice snowflake die from Accucut and using that die and that packing stuff, I cut cool snowflakes to attach to gift bags or presents or even to add as an ornament on your tree.

Since this packing stuff is white, I put a blue sheet of cardstock behind the snowflake so you could see it, otherwise it would get lost in the background. Well I have a few things to complete and I will be up late tonite getting then done before I go to bed. I want to have nothing to do tomorrow but reorganize my studio. And it sure needs it, it looks like a bomb hit it.(LOL)

My next post will probably be after Christmas, so, with that in mind, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and thank you for reading my blog.

Well that's it for now, thanks for stopping by, see you soon,

Thanks for these great and easy ideas to make. Since I'm finished... I'll have to tuck these away for next year! Thanks. Merry Christmas!
