Gift bags, tags, and blog candy

HI Friends!

Well, today is your last day to sign up for a chance at the blog candy I’m giving away.  See my post here for the goodies up for grabs!  You have until 8:00 pm EST today (Wednesday December 8th). Today is my birthday, and I wanted to do this give away as a gift to one of you who comments.  This is a birthday present I’m giving to myself.

I’d also like to share some photos of some of the gift bags and tags I’ve made recently.  These didn’t take all that long because I used patterned paper (and was able to use a lot of scraps). It was so nice because I was able to do it while Carlin and I watched tv.

First up, gift bags… These are just some that I made, and I love having a coordinating tag to go along with the bag. Makes me happy to have matching things…

Next up tags…

I seriously don’t know if I have enough gifts for all of these.

Here are some closer up shots…

I hope you liked the glimpses of how some of our gifts will be packaged. I’ve so enjoyed making these guys.

As always, thanks for stopping by. I cannot wait to pick and announce the winner.

Hugs and blessings to you all

Nette

Very cute, love all the different tags you created! I might have to try and make some of those tags with some of my left over scrap pieces! Thanks for sharing.

Wowzers, what an amazing array of tags! I bet you could use some of those beyond Christmas if you have a hard time using them up before then! I love how each of them are unique but so cohesive when you put them all together.

And, last but not least.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I wish I would have know sooner! I hope you have the best of best days.

The scallopy gift tags are super cute - I especially like the pink aqua and green ones. Good inspiration for me to make some of my own!

Love all the tags and your gift bags. As you say, the gift bags are a great way to use scraps, and friends appreciate the handmade touch.

Happy Birthday and thanks for sharing your great ideas.

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope your day is fabulous! And shouldn't you be the one getting the gifts instead of giving one away? That just goes to show how sweet you are.

Secondly, I love your tags and I love the twine. I always use ribbon, I am so stingy with my twine, but I definitely prefer the look of twine now that I see it on your adorable tags..... :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! So generous of you to 'pay it forward' on YOUR special day!

Wow, fabulous job!! I love it when I'm making something I can chill out on the couch with the hubbs & put together! I love how they all came out - super cute!!
