Hello all!! I am just popping in for a small post.  I am still under the weather and really had more fun making a smaller project today with a sneak peek from Our Daily Bread Designs- Perfect Gift stamp set and Oh Christmas Tree Carol.  So I made a gift box and a set of gift tags!!  How fun and simple!!  I decided to go with non-traditional colors.  These would be perfect for my dear daughter who loves pink!!!

The first is my gift box which I altered.  I stamped the Oh Christmas Tree Carol in all directions, masking as I went to create a shabby or vintage flair.  I then antiqued the sides with Vintage distress ink from Tim Holtz. The tag is created with the sentiment and gifts from the Perfect Gift set from ODBD to be released on Monday, October 1.

The next project is a set of tags I created using the sneak peek Perfect Gift from Our Daily Bread Designs.  They are so fun and easy.  The colors are pink pirouette and pear pizaaz from Stampin Up.  I also added gold glitter paper to one of them.  The fun part is that they can be any color to compliment a gift!!
