Christmas Crafts

I've been busy making alllll kinds of things! I kinda fly around flitting from one project to another:)

I wanted to try an ornament made from decorative paper. I thought less steps would equal less time right? Well, yeah, but I like the stamped ones better.
My friend Deborah and I were making some of these for the centers of our ornaments, when Deborah put two together facing out and said, "hey these are pretty enough to be ornaments all by themselves!" She is so right! Which is why I made a few more. They are really simple using the die cut. I embellished them with what ever I could find laying around.
I LOVE LOVE the Stampin' Up! Clearance Rack!! This Tangerine Tango ribbon is the perfect color for Clemson! I paired it with Elegant Eggplant and voila, instant college colors for the craft shows:) The punch was at the bottom of my drawer. It's old, old. I don't know who made it, and it might be a wolf paw, but it looks like a tiger paw to me:) I found a rooster punch for the Carolina Gamecocks and will use that with Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black for Carolina colors. I'll be all set for the college sports fans in our area who attend the craft shows!!
Christmas tag holder
Inside there are 12 tags and a pocket for string.
Man I love these ornament stamps and dies:)
