Oh what pretty paper scraps...





My awesome friend, Paula, who knows how much I love paper and making pretty things with it, gave me some really great scraps of paper. First of all, the paper is really cool! It's a holiday and winter collection with a really nice weight to it, I believe she told me it was Bazzill. The paper all coordinates so nicely together and it's double-sided paper, so there were tons of great patterns to pick from.

I used some of the paper to make some holiday cards, which I've yet to photograph, but I'll post them soon. (my camera battery died mid photo shoot) I did manage to get photos of the darling holiday gift tags I made. They were too easy...I used the patterned-papers and cardstock from my scrap stash, that's it. I have a tag die-cutter, which made this project super easy; all I had to do was punch the patterned-paper & coordinating cardstock, the glue together. I still have to get ribbon on most of the tags.

I think they're darling and they'll look great on my holiday packages sitting under the tree!
