Tags for the Neighbor Treats!


I hope you’re not sick of Christmas!!  I’ve got a few more projects to share.  The timing wasn’t right before Christmas (don’t want to ruin any surprises!)… I’m going to share them this week… here’s my first “belated Christmas” project.

We have a family tradition of delivering our neighbor treats on Christmas Eve. It didn’t start out as a tradition, more of a procrastination on my part… A few years ago I just decided to go with it and plan on delivering on Christmas eve every year.

This December I’ve not been feeling well and I knew that mass baking was not in my future.   So instead we went to Trader Joe’s and bought all sorts of their yummy Christmas treats to pass out.

To dress up the treats I made some simple gift tags using some Rhonna Designs art.  I used the tag from the Merry Christmas Stickers Digital Kit.

In photoshop I added the word “sweet” and our name.  I then printed the tags out on textured card stock and cut them into tag shapes.  I added a fun paper bow and glued them to some doilies.

Then just attached them to our treats.
