The Magic Number
This year I made 1,632 cookies for our annual Cookie Party. We had lots of guests this year and I feel like a bad hostess because I am sure I did not get to talk to everyone. Everyone left with full bellies, big smiles and a bag of cookies, so that is good enough for me!
Now that (most of) my baking is done, I have time to stamp! I made a bunch of tags for gifts last night. I found a bunch of white cardstock scraps and made these:
These are based on a Card of the Week from the A Muse Newsletter a few weeks back. Here is a look, in case you missed it:
Then, I pulled out some extra sturdy kraft cardstock that I found in October at Angela's Happy Stamper. I made these tags:
which were based on a bag from Starbucks that had a yummy pumpkin scone in it:
Then, I had a little bit of the kraft cardstock left, so I made these:
Believe it or not, but this tag was inspired by a tag that was on a gift that Betty Haynes gave to Bob Wallace in "White Christmas." The tag is really quite different than this one, but it inspired me nonetheless!
I haven't put all of the holes and ribbons on these yet because I like to wait to see where to punch holes based on the wrapped package and ribbon placement. Guess what my next chore is? I have to do my husband's gifts tonight since he is still out of town.
