TAG, YOU'RE IT!

Hey there stampers, today is the last day of the Our Craft Lounge/May Arts product Swap.  Don't forget to leave comments on all the designers blogs (each day they participated), The Lounge and OCL's Facebook page.  If you "like" us, you will get a bonus entry, but you have to let us know you did it.  Also, don't forget about OCL's Sneak Peeks/Blog Hop next week...20 new sets...dang, I better get crafting!  Woot!

Today I'm showing this awesome gift ensemble of a dozen tags and matching tea light candles.  It was so much fun to make!  I let the May Arts twine choose the colors for me; dark olive, pinkish-mauve and cream...probably not the first colors that come to mind for Christmas, but they are very pretty together.

I designed this box based on a similar one we made in a class at Memories of Time.  These tea lights are in glass holders so I had to accommodate for that.  I also created risers for the tags to sit on.  Another gorgeous May Arts trim completes the packaging along with a little more of that yummy twine.


Here's a pic without the acetate cover.  The tags were stamped on white card stock with black ink then colored with Copic markers.  They were cut out then layered with olive and mauve card stocks.  Holes were punched for the twine to slip through.  The candles were created with this technique from SCS minus the wax paper (you don't need that for the tea lights).  Sooo cool to make...I'm totally hooked!

I guess that's it.  I hope you had as much fun during the product swap week as we did.  I'd like to say a big thanks to Bethney and May Arts for teaming up with OCL this week and providing this wonderful ribbon that we all got to play with!  Hope to see you back for the Sneak Peeks/Blog Hop next week.
