Merry Box and Tags

One of the things I love the most about being a demonstrator is the opportunity to attend exclusive events full of inspiration and fun.  This past weekend I attended a Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar in Chattanooga, TN.  I learned so much!  The presenters were fabulous and had lots of cute projects to demonstrate.

Normally at a regional seminar you have 6 make & take projects, but this one was just a half-day event - so there were 3.  Here's the first one:

This box is so cute, and was cut using the Big Shot and Stampin' Up!'s exclusive Bitty Box & Envelope Bigz XL die.  You can easily loop some twine or linen thread around the brads on the tags and have a quick and cute accent for your gift.  Or, you could box them all up in an adorable little box such as this one, and give that as a gift.  Your recipient would love you for making their gift wrapping a little easier!  :)  You could also fit 2"x2" cards very easily inside.

I also love the idea of using the beautiful Real Red polka dot ribbon as an accent on the tags.  The other side of the ribbon is solid, with the stitched edge.. so it's like getting 2 different ribbons in one!  And speaking of getting more value for your money - the sentiment that comes with the stamp set (which we got free by the way!) says "make merry!".  Just inking up part of the saying using the markers gives you another option.

Supplies:  Berry Christmas stamp set; Real Red textured cardstock; Whisper White and Bashful Blue cardstock; Certainly Celery, Real Red, and Bashful Blue Classic Stampin' Pads, Bashful Blue and Soft Suede Stampin' Write markers; Real Red 3/4" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon; Silver Brads, Linen Thread; Stampin' Dimensionals, Stamp-a-ma-jig
