Mini Tags with a box

Can you belive it is less then four months until Christmas. Only 15 weekends to prepare.
I have one cute gift idea to share with you - a little gift box/Christmas tree ornament with 6 tags.  It is easy to make with a new Sweet Holiday Stamp set.

I stamped the house with VersaMark ink to the brown CS and heat embossed with White Detail EP. I added Liquid Pearls to color the house. After the 'frosting' was dry I fussy cut the house by leaving narrow border all around. Then I placed it to the piece of brown cs, traced it with a pencil and cut another house shape out with scissors.

I used 20,7 cm wide and 3cm long stip of brown cs to form a box between the two houses. On the template you can see excactly how I scored and folded it.

The box will open from the top.

Six Gingerbread Men lives in my little Gingerbread house. Each tag is slightly different from another.

Gingerbread men are colored and cut same way as is the front of the house. For the tags I adhered 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" to the white cs. They are die cut with a tag die from the Spellbinders Back to Basic Tags set. After removing the protective sheet I adhered the Gingerbreads to the tags. Rest of the tape is covered with Goldenrod and Fascination glitters.

I added some more glitter to the back of the tags with Sakura Glue pen.

Pearls on the ribbon ware originally white. I colored them with Flexmarkers. Blue tags got yellow pearls and yellow tags got blue pearls.

My idea was that after you use all the tags for the gifts, you can hang the box to the Christmas tree and use it as an ornament.
