LAD DT Challenge ... Holiday Tags & Packages

It's that time again for the monthly Lizzie Anne Design Team Challenge.  I love the challenges that the LAD girls come up with & this one is perfect for me ~ Holiday Tags.  I used the tag image from the December Monthly Mix (Warm Wishes). Since it is such a easy and simple tag, I wanted to do more with the packaging.  I gathered up my supplies ~ kraft packing paper (office supply store), a medium to large snowflake stamp (I used an image from the November '09 Mix ~ Christmas Wishes), and some dark brown ink.  I rolled out my paper on a flat surface and stamped my snowflakes.  You'll want to stamp them somewhat close together & keep the stamp handy in case you need to add a few more after you wrap the box.  HOWEVER, be careful stamping directly on your package because the surface may not be even and you may end up with only a partial image ~ not that I've ever had that happen ~ ;). Once my packages were wrapped, I added some pretty fabric ribbon, added the tag, and VOILA ~ easy peasy!

For my gift bag, I used the snowflake from the Love & Joy Labels set to stamp all over the bag.  I added a strip of pattern paper (Echo Park) with a brown scallop border and some fun pom-pom trim.  I added the tag to the bag with Glue Dots and then more fabric ribbon to tie the gift bag in with the rest of the packages.

You can check out all the fun tag projects the other DT girls have made over on the Lizzie Anne Blog
