Anyway - here is my offering.
Over the years of digital scrapbooking and card making and other digital activities, I have come across many many templates and projects which I have collected. Here is just one of them.
This is a template for making a small box. The base is 2.25" square and the height is 1.5" for each side. The template makes the most adorable pyramid box which can hold some candy goodies or other goodies if you like.
With the advent of our new Christmas kits I thought it would be very cool to make a little box up with a gift tag with the name of each of the people who are going to be celebrating Christmas with us this year.
So here you can see I have pulled in a background paper and added Mr. Gnome from the original Gnomes collection.
At the same time I am creating tags with the names of all who will be at our Christmas dinner.
Now for the tag. Opened up a new blank piece of paper and pulled in Mr. and Mrs. Gnome.
There are many different ways to make a tag now. What I have done is found a good tag shape and used it as a mask to make the tag.
At this point I extended the length of the tag so that I had room to put names at the bottom.
Here you can see the tag in place with the box ready to print, cut, score, fold, fill and finish ready to enjoy.
Printed 6 copies.
Cut and scored each one and inked the edges of each tag and stamped each person's name using tiny alphabet stamps.
Filled each box with Hershey's Christmas kisses and added black waxed linen thread into the holes at the top of each peak. Here is the first finished box, tag and all.
And all 6 finished boxes which will be used as place holders for our special Christmas dinner.
I do hope you have all enjoyed my entry into the Holiday blog hop.
Time to wish you all an extremely Merry Christmas and point you in the direction of the next stop.
