Christmas Gift Tage DIY with DCWV

I love wrapping gifts. I'm not sure when this love started, but I remember asking my mom if I could wrap the Christmas presents each year.  She never seemed to complain...

With the wrapping comes the need for gift tags. Instead of buying them this year, I decided to make them. I wanted them to be easy to keep track of though. (Nothing worse than spending time making something just to lose it before you can use it!)

So, I decided to make a ticket tag book.  

All the fun papers that make up this book come from the DCWV "Crafty Christmas" stack. I love the red and green stripes and plaids! They are so fun!  

I used some "Fairy Dust"  Creative Inspirations Paint to add some beautiful shimmer to the snow. I also used some Enamel Accents to the eyes and mouth for a little pop of texture.

The inside is made up of ticket strips... I die cut them from my favorite papers from the stack using the Tim Holtz "Ticket Strip" die. I then used Archival ink to stamp on the image of the ticket.  (Always use an ink made for non-porous surfaces when you are stamping over the varnish!).  I then stamped and embossed all the white images.  
Although it looks like it would take a long time to stamp and emboss all those images, I think I spent more time going through all my holiday stamps to find the images. =)

All the backs have "To:"  & "From:" stamped on them, so they are ready to add to packages.

Now, to get the shopping done...
