Christmas tags!

An evening of Christmas tags, nugget boxes, shrinky dinks and fun! My stamping buddies and I gathered for a night of laughter and stamping. Can you think of anything better? :)

We made some Christmas tags, pictured here. I learned a total embossing technique at Heather's stamp camp last week and then we applied it to the joy stamp. So sparkly and fun!

The "funnest" thing we did was shrinky dink embellishments. And, I forgot to take a picture!!! Can you believe it? They were darling!!! I can't wait to make some of my own. I made my class try it first and they had a blast. :) One girl was too young to know about shrinky dinks so she had a blast watching the oven. :) To be honest, so did I!! I forgot how much they curled and I thought one was permanently ruined but then, like magic, they flattened back out and were just darling!! The TAC Winter Tag set is just perfect for this fun!

I hope you have a wonderful time gearing up for the holidays. I know I have a lot more tags to make! :)

Happy Stamping!

  1. I love shrink plastic! When my daughter has friends over or a party we almost always make a shrinky dink craft. the kids have as much fun watching them shrink as they do coloring them!

  4. There are very pretty! I adore them, and I remember playing with shriky dink as a little girl, but I didn't have the little oven, we actually put them on a cookie sheet in the regular oven. . . HA, really dating myself, aren't I?! LOL
