Today I'm going to try and be super productive because my box of new Stampin' Up! supplies has arrived and all I want to do is play. But before I start wrapping all my presents, I have to finish making tags for them. My husband does not understand the process of making tags - why work so hard on something we throw away each year when you can buy the cheap metallic sticker tags at the grocery store.
Well, first off, I don't sell the supplies to make those. Second, the writing doesn't smear on mine. Third, I get that same feeling of joy when someone reads their name on a homemade tag as when I open a homemade card. And fourth, and most importantly, because if I'm shopping for his family and mine, I can do whatever I want! :)
These little tags are quick and easy. Start with a 2 x 3 piece of cardstock and either cut and punch the top or use one of our retired tag punches. Thread a small piece of string through. Then take a 2 x 2 piece of cardstock and adhere. This helps you use up your scraps of DSP left over or lets you make 9 from each 6 x 6 sheet. Then add a 1" strip of cardstock on top with adhesive that you stamp using a To/From from any stamp set. My go to this Christmas is from Tin of Tags because the lettering is perfectly sized for a 1" strip! If you want to embellish, add some trinkets or stamp and cut out trees from the Stitched with Cheer stamp set!

WHAT IS PAPER PUMPKIN?
While we have many great products on closeout, there is one program that you really should check out as well. I only sell things I'm passionate about and this product line is definitely one of my favorites!
Paper Pumpkin is creativity in a box. It costs $19.95 plus tax and ships to your mailbox once a month. It contains everything you need for your own creative escape. Besides the instructions and pieces for the cards or project, it also contains ink and photopolymer stamps and usually the adhesive you need as well. My subscribers will also get a project sheet with tips and additional ideas and instructions that they can make with the supplies in the kits and sometimes some supplemental supplies. They also are invited to participate in a free Paper Pumpkin Playdate to make their kits using any of my additional supplies like framelits and punches! It's a wonderful program and I'd love for you to try it out! Sign up by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit!
