12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 7 – Candy tags

day7_Sweet_tags1Good morning and welcome to day seven of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts! Wow today is such a craft or reading day. It’s pouring outside. We are suppose to have a Nor’easter today.  Fingers crossed the power doesn’t go out.  Only have to go out in it one more time later this afternoon to pick up my boys and that’s it, I’m staying put!

day7_Sweet_tags2One thing I do regularly is cruise around Silhouette store and Pinterest for inspiration and files. Last week, I came across this file. It’s meant to be a mini-scrapbook album.  I didn’t see that for me but what I did see is that I could reduce the size of the images and make them tags for the holidays.  They are suppose to be mint candies. I used some Reflections cardstock and cut them out.

day7_Sweet_tags3The file even came with the blank circle which was intended to be a photo mat for the album but turned out to be the perfect place for my To and From.  I could have used the Silhouette to write the words but I thought handwriting would make it more personal. I like looking at files and thinking of many ways to use them. It stretches my money and brain. I like the challenge of thinking of new possibilities.

Same plate prop as a few days ago.  In the rush, I didn’t grab anything new.

I hope you are home staying dry if it’s weather like mine and enjoying some craft time.

Have a blessed day!

    When I first saw them I thought – yum – candy! And this candy is calorie free! Very cute idea.
