I re-purposed a box that contained a necklace for a quick 10 minute Christmas ornament project. Cut out the Santa from Home For The Holidays paper from Stampin' Up! Made a little tab to stand him up inside the box behind the clear acetate lid. Attached a silver cord to top.

While the boys are watching some of their favorite shows, I finished up some projects I had hanging around on my desk. The first is some quick and easy gift tags using Stampin' Up!'s Peaceful Pines and Watercolor Wash for the background.
The second is a Santa tag, all non SU.
The third is a Japanese paper kusudama flower that I turned into an ornament using some silver cording, embellished with rhinestone snowflake.

I have SO much ribbon and am always looking for ways to use it up. This is from Stampin' Up!, a cherry cobbler textured satin that I wrapped around a plastic band (3 for .98 at Wal-Mart). They were covered in a glittery stretch fabric that was easily removed and then I carefully wrapped the new ribbon around the band. The poinsettia silk flowers were from Michael's, the center was a snowflake rhinestone embellishment from last season. All set for the holidays!

I have hundreds of Christmas cards that I've made over the years and am starting to repurpose some of them into tags. I just don't know THAT many people to send cards to this year. I used to give most of them to Operation Write Home but they have closed up shop. If you know of a charity that is looking for greeting cards, I would love to know so I can share my collection.
This was a Stampin' Up! snowman and sentiment, not sure of the snowflakes. The white letter beads are from Joann's. Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Going Gray, Cherry taffeta ribbon to embellish.

To feel better about it all I decided to try and complete some projects before my next major purchase. This tag with the Christmas tree was an ATC from a swap from many years ago. I don't know who made it, aside from "Denise", written on the back, or why I continue to save atc's. The craft color tag base is from a Tim Holtz insert card that held some kind of embellishments, too pretty to toss. I inked the edges with Tea Dye ink, added some Stampin' Up! sentiments and Sahara Sand lace ribbon.
