Christmas Elf Gift Tag


Hello and happy Tuesday. Only one more night to sleep - no i am not off the calender.. only one more night to sleep and my son Niklas turns 3 years old. :-0 I can not believe it - he is still my baby. I still have to go shopping and do some serious cleaning and hide the laundry cause my mother-in-law is coming from Toronto to visit us :-) She is really a sweetheart.
Iam officially hooked on tags. When i received the first DT package from Magnolia with all the tags to decorate i was like oh my gosh.. what shall i do with those?! And i in cooperated as many tags as possible on a card lol but once i made the Santa Claus tag i was like hmmm they really can look so nice. The ones i have left are smaller than Magnolia's i got them from Donalda but i have seen them at Joanns.I think the tags look quite cute. I used up lots and lot of tiny little craps which would be otherwise in the trashcan. Some sewing and some laces and all done. The pillow box is a template i got from Regina's Cutting Cafe. This is pretty much a last minute gift idea. I was thinking to punch a hole in the side with my crop-a-dile and have some ribbon ends sticking out and give that as a gift.
Stamp: oh my gosh.. i loooove this little Elf boy - he can be found in the Jingle Jangle Collection 2008 (Thank you Magnolia!!)
Papers CS: My Minds Eye and Creamy Caramel
Ribbon: Stampin up, Lace will be in the Pretty Pressings Ribbon Share i am going to host in January

Edit: I am having trouble with blogger if i upload more than one picture and write my text it never let me click on pictures that's in between the text to have them show big. I don't know how to fix that problem. Iam sorry.

What a wonderful pillow box and tag! I love them, they are both super adorable! As for the photo question with blogger, I have the same problem, and the only way I know to fix it is to upload each picture seperate and then you can click on them to make them bigger. I hope someone else knows a better trick as doing them seperate takes forever! :)
Hugs~ Kim
