Papertrey November Blog Hop

Happy Thanksgiving to all! Can you believe we are having a Blog Hop today? As usual, I am thinking about this 10 minutes before the start, and trying to fit it in with other things I need to produce today- Ha!


10 minute tags- I made the Kraft ones first, then realized I needed them silver, so I did 2 more. No lie, less than 10 minutes.


Cut the paper with the Christmas Tree die, stamp with the smaller Text Style in SU's Handsome Hunter, punch out little balls in Pure Poppy, and anchor the Pure Poppy Bakers Twine with a little star button and glue dots.


So want to see the rest of the story??

Here are the two silver tags on their bags...


Here's what's inside the bags- our annual Holiday Planners. I got the RSVP pens and put matching paper inside, then glued the pen tops on the fronts with Crystal Effects. These planners were a $4.00 bargain mid-July at a Hallmark store.



Inside- stamped their names with Trajan Monogram Edition.

There are envelopes inside the planners, but I added the one on the inside cover- I wanted a place to stash that cute Santa Chocolate bar-



Ah, yes... what the girls are really looking for, of course, is the stash in the chocolate bar wrapper- ha! Black Friday is one of the most fun days of the year for me!
