NOTE TAG PENGUIN FAVOR:

Hello there! I wanted to share this favor that I made for my Club Members at Card Night last week. It features the Note Tag Punch and was super easy to put together. I started with a piece of Basic Black Cardstock measuring 6 1/4" x 3. I scored longways at 1 1/2" and shortways at 1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2" and 6". I kept the 1/4" tab on the top row of squares, but cut off the bottom tab. I then cut up to the score lines on the bottom row score lines. I folded on the score lines to form a box. I used Fast Fuse on the tab and bottom pieces to make a small box. I punched out 2 tags using the Note Tag Punch.

I punched out 2 more tags in Whisper White Cardstock, cut off the sides and adhered to the black tags. I tied a piece of Real Red Satin Ribbon around him and secured it with a dab of SNAIL. I used my retired 1/4" square punch for his beak, but you can just cut a small square and score down the middle, using Pumpkin Pie Cardstock. I used the Word Bubble Framelits for his earmuffs in Real Read Cardstock~the smallest one and cut off one of the circles. I added a pair of Neutrals Candy Dots in black and a couple of googlie eyes. I attached the decorated tag to the front of the box with fast Fuse and the plain tag to the back. The little box is a perfect fit for a York's peppermint patty.

I went to a Catalog Launch in Des Moines a couple of weeks ago to get my hands on the new Occasions and SAB catalogs!!! And I got to see a couple of buddies I hadn't see in awhile. My good friend Jamie made this sweet little Santa for me and filled him with my most favorite holiday treat:)

And my other Jaimie buddy made me this:) The perfect chocolate survival kit to get me through the Christmas craziness:) What a couple of thoughtful elves!

Off to make some more Christmas cards:) Love this time of year! Thanks so much for stopping by:)
