It's the 20th of the month and that means it's time for the Control Freak Blog Hop!
If you're following along the tour, you've just come from Lee Ann Greff's blog. If you're just starting here, there's a link at the bottom of this post that will take you to the next blog so you can see all of the fabulous creations.
The theme for this month's hop is the Holiday Mini Catalog. I love all of the products in the mini catalog so this was perfect for me. One of the traditions that I have with my children is that we make homemade gift tags for the presents we buy for each other. We set aside a night and that's all we do--stamp, color, cut, glue, etc. It's a lot of fun. With that tradition in mind I *had* to buy the Tags til Christmas stamp set so we can make fun tags like these.
Isn't that a great stamp set? I decided that my tags needed a box to go in so that I can give some of these away as a gift so I made this box.
I sat down and made my own pattern for this box. I know you're going to ask for it, so please rest assured that I'll post the pattern and directions within the next couple of days. UPDATE: Click here to download the pattern. Click here for the tutorial.
If you're having trouble downloading the pattern, hold your mouse above the words "click here" and RIGHT click on the link and select "save link as." This will download the file straight to your computer and then you can open it.
The holidays are always such a busy time of year that I wanted to come up with a quick card that I could make in less than five minutes.
Isn't that cute? It's a little postcard that doesn't open. It's perfect for writing a quick note to a friend or for tucking inside a gift bag. Quick, simple, and easy to duplicate.
