Pint sized tag


Halloween coffins

Not sure why after 11 PM I get creative? Here are two coffins I created for my two nieces for Halloween. I have to keep one G rated as she is 3 can you guess which one? The other gets a bit more of a spooky look on her coffin. This is a cut out from the paper pack Recollections from Michaels craft store. I also used Crate Paper Oh Darling, Prima flowers and Tattered Angels spray on the cheese cloth inside. I will add the candy tomorrow! Happy Halloween for those that celebrate this crazy holiday!

Ozzie card

This is a card I made for my 'bestie' who's just lost her bird Ozzie.  It's from my monthly Basic Grey Kits: Evergreen collection; Goodwill, sleigh ride, Basic Grey Second City Collection; hyde park, POTM exclusive paper; ribbon, flowers, chipboard and a sticker from the collection - it's a Dove as it's really a Christmas Collection but the only one I had with birds on it.

Small Halloween Crackers

I made a total of 42 of these fab small crackers for my niece's dance class.  I have assorted chocolate candies inside.  Mini Hershey, 3 Mustakteers, Kit Kats!! I do have to admit that I did sample a few of these while making them - the sugar kept me going to finish them.

I started with a 12x12 sheet of paper, then cut it to 8 inches in width and then cut to 5 1/2 inches - which gives you two pieces from 12x12 paper.

I then scored the paper width at 1.5, 2, 2.5 and 5.5, 6, 6.5
I then scored the length at 1.5, 3, 4.5
scoring the paper on each fold line.

Then I folded the paper on the length side and cut triangles on the width side so that it can bend and I can tie ribbon on the paper to keep the goodies inside.

I didn't tape the paper in the middle but you can if you'd like, I figured the ribbon can hold it closed! You can also use any funky punch that you may have for the edges, I liked it with just ribbon and it makes it look like a huge candy.

 I hope the girls enjoy these, it took me about 2 hours total time.  One night I did the cutting and scoring, then last night while watching tv I put them together.

Tim Holtz Tag

I had these black tags that I wasn't sure what to do with other than use as a background.  I used my Tim Holtz paper from Ideology collection.

Monochromatic Tag

I decided to do a monochromatic tag in blue.  I have a teeny picture of my niece in her cheerleader outfit from last year.  She's so cute the little uniforms and seeing 6 ad 7 year old cheerleaders is just too stinkin cute on the field cheering!!!   I tried to get blues to match her uniform but it is such a bright dark blue, so I just used the colors I had.  The flowers are Prima Flowers, Basic Grey Celebration collection - Flag, Crate Paper DIY Shop #1 Girl wood chipboard, Prima Dollie, Shimmerz Dazzelerz Gummy Berry Blue, Heidi Swap stencil, Tattered Angels Spray Mist - Bell Bottom Jeans - Blue, Queen and Co Twinkle Motifs in Blue!!!
