JAI 340 Just add gift tags & treat box

It's time for a new Just Add Ink challenge & this week Jan wants us to Just Add Gift Tags. A very timely challenge, since December is whizzing its way to Christmas & I'm fully in present mode. This post needs to be as quick as my project was to make, so here's what I made.

Let's talk tags first - I cut the basic tag from the largest of the Cheerful Tags dies. I cut 2 - one in white & one mint macaron - then glued them together & folded. I stamped the front with a fave 'Making Spirits Bright' sentiment from the Tin of Tags stamp set in real red (bet you can't stop singing Jingle Bells now) & 'With Love' on the inside in emerald envy.

I added a twist of fun with a punched Santa hat cut with the Jolly Hat builder punch (sadly retiring so get it now!) in real red card & dazzling diamonds glimmer paper. Super quick & easy & a fun addition to any punch art critter.

The box couldn't be quicker or easier to make - Just fold up a Clear Tiny Treat box, add a paper belly band (Presents & Pinecones dsp - also retiring & on sale). Finish off with some ribbon & a tag. I filled the boxes with Christmas Hershey's Kisses (found at Costco). You get 16 boxes in the Clear Tiny Treat Box pack for just $13.25. They're 5cm squares (or 2 inches), which surprisingly fits quite a lot.

So that's it for me for now. I hope my tag & treat box gives you some ideas for quick Christmas gifts. Check my supply list below for everything I used & to order through my store.

Lots more Christmas coming to share, so pop back again soon.

Inky wishes, Di

Simple, sweet and super cute is a winning combination at Christmas and you absolutely scored on all three counts Di! The little Santa hat is a such an iconic and fun accent to add. xxx

These are so cute Di and I love the added detail of the Santas hat - and I love the lovely boxes of treats you've created too! xo
