12 Days of Christmas: Day 11

Hello Everyone! Welcome to DAY 11 of the Kraft-y Hearts 12 Days Blog Share. I can't believe we have only one more day left! (You know this means there's only 13 shopping days left until Christmas, but let's not dwell on that.)

Today's little project is the second part of the teachers gifts we'll be giving this year. It's a tea bag tag.



The tag is actually a library pocket that I cut at 4 inches from Kraft cardstock using the Artiste Cricut cartridge. (That cartridge has certainly earned its keep this season!) I inked around the edges with Cocoa Exclusive ink to give the tag a bit more depth. The border stamp is from the Pear & Partridge Workshop On The Go stamp set and is stamped in Olive Exclusive ink. The tea cup (stamped in Cocoa Exclusive ink) and sentiment (stamped in Cranberry Exclusive ink) are from Close To My Heart's Cup of Cheer stamp set. I added Christmas Red Stickles to the border for some sparkle (I still don't have my Red Glitz Glitter Gel, but it's on my list). "To" and "From" are stamped in Cocoa Exclusive ink using the Very Merry stamp set.

Here's a couple of close-ups:



I added bakers twine to the tag and double-knotted it. I tucked the knotted in into the box and closed the lid. The knot anchors the tag to the box! I thought that was pretty spiffy.



Hope you enjoyed my tea bag tags. I thought I would use them to play along in the Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week. Leave me a comment to be entered in my give away that I'll be conducting on 12/12/12. (The winner will receive a Capture the Date stamp set and a Chocolate Exclusive Ink dye ink pad!)

Make sure you hop on over to From My Bungalow and see the super cute projects created by my talented friend, Lynn Darda.

    1. It took me less than an hour to do 11 fr start to finish. I think they would be perfect for volunteers or any group you wanted to give a treat to. :) (Lift away!) ;)

  2. What a clever use of the library pocket! Love the stamped Kraft CS, of course. Very cute how you connected to those boxes. I will be adding this to my "to do" list. TFS

  4. What a great way to dual purpose a tag! If I met you in person I bet the Artiste cartridge is in a holster on your hip! .... you are rockin' it!
