Teriffic Tags, Quick Gifts to Make & a Freebie!

Wow, Christmas is almost here! I have been busy in my craft room making cards, wrapping presents and lately, making last-minute gifts! Here are a few tags I made to adorn a few gift baskets I am putting together, these only took minutes with the help of my Vintage Christmas Label stamp set to make the gift extra special:

I used my Vintage Christmas Label digital stamp set to make these. I printed out sheets of labels a while back knowing that I would want to make Christmas tags and gift bag toppers with them {it was so easy!} The cute treat cups are from Stampin Up! {I better order more the next time I see my demo!}

I needed a few quick gifts for my kids to give their teachers and here is what I cam up with using my Cricut, SCAL2 software and my Vintage Christmas Label set:

To make the pretzels simply melt chocolate wafers in a Pyrex measuring cut for 1 minute {half-power} in the microwave, then in 30 second intervals until melted. Dip the pretzels in the chocolate {you can use a spoon to draw the chocolate up the pretzel if your cup is too shallow} and lay them on a sheet of wax paper to cool. While they are still melty shake on some sprinkles for fun! I packaged them in my Uline clear self sealing bags that I use to protect my cards, the bags to double duty in my craft room because they are FDA approved food safe. This is a great project to do with the kids, mine have been making these since they were 3, just be sure mom or dad do the melting! Here is a look at the other toppers I made with the Vintage Christmas Label set:

OK now here is a fun freebie, I was playing with my SCAL2 software and my Stampin Up! Sweet Treat cups and thought I could make a cute ornament! I did not have a 1 3/4″ punch so I designed a scut2 file that will fit the cups perfectly:

You can snag the free SCUT2 file here. To cut more than 1 simply drag a box around the whole design and copy and paste it as much as you want. If you do not want to use the treat cups you could put a photo in the opening it could be a great christmas tradition-be sure to make one for grandma too!

BTW if you have not found a gift for the Cricut owner on your list see if they have SCAL2 and if they don’t get it for them! It’s on sale for $59.95, you could spend that on 1 cartridge and with this software you can cut thousands of fonts with your cricut for free:) You can download it instantly too so no waiting (or shopping) either.

Here is a look at the Vintage Christmas Labels set:

I challenged the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff DT to create some terrific tags for you this week, as promised they have quick and easy tags you can make today. All DT posts will be up by 10am Thursday morning ET.
