in July!! Yup, Christmas ideas are popping up all over blog land! All the design team gals at SweetSassyDiva  are giving you some great Christmas stuff to start on now or store away for later.

My project comes from the late Katie Renz. She was on on the design team for Clearly iStamp. Sadly, Katie passed away in November of 2011. The original directions for the box I made can be found here. This is the 2nd time I have made this box, and I know I am going to making these for special gifts this year.

It goes together very easily... the hardest part of this project is picking out the papers and figuring how to decorate the tags ! So here we go...

After making the box, I laid out the tags on my Gypsy. They are from George and Basic Shapes.

I cut 4 tags, 2 from each design at 4.25" on Shadow Blackout. These are for the outside ends.

The rest of the tags are cut at 3.75", layer and shadow.

I cut a strip using my Fiskars Border Punch and added a small piece of ribbon.

The stamps, ink and punches are all from Stampin UP.

The hardware and ribbons are from my stash as is the designer papers.

This really was a fun and simple project. I hope you will give it a try !

I am entering this in the Christmas Challenge at DL. Art

As Always, thanks for stopping by  :)
