|Carly liked the hot cocoa tag the best because it had pink on it.|
|Letter to Santa is my favorite although it didn't take any time at all to complete!|
|This is my second favorite...velvet paper is so pretty in person.|
After making Tag #4, I realized I should just make the rest of the tags and add the numbers when I was done. That way, I could arrange...and re-arrange them to get the best color, shape and size combination. I die cut a coasterboard layer for behind the decorated tag so they would be sturdier to last throughout the years. The clothespins were dyed with wood stain overnight in a zip lock bag.
Now, what am I going to do this year when I have no little kids and no grandchildren that will be able to see the little activity tags that are left once you remove a tag. My board will look pretty darn bare by the time the last week of December comes around. I have decided to try (TRY) to take one picture every day of the month, anything that looks cute or fun and has to do with my family. I will put each picture into a polaroid diecut frame and clip it up in place of the numbered tag. We'll see if I end up with more than one or two pictures displayed when Christmas Day finally rolls around!
Whew. That took almost as long to write as it did to make. Thanks for sticking with me and looking at my Countdown to Christmas Display.
**You will note that many of my tags used Waltzingmouse Stamps...just to let everyone know they now have limited shipping based in the United States!!!Yah for all of us who want to get their stamps super fast! Spread the word**
