His and Hers Gift Tags

I'm following Kathy by Design's blog HERE and she posted the most beautiful project yesterday for 613 Avenue Create.  So I was inspired to join in the challenge.

I needed to make two tags to place on the Christmas presents for my daughter and her husband. They are similar gifts for their home so I decided to distinguish the identical gift boxes with His and Hers tags.  I thought of my carolers die which I had yet to break out the the packaging.

Linking up the Unruly Paper Arts 12 Days of Christmas Link Up Party:  Day 7  8.

I procratinated and didn't get my post done on Saturday so I missed my goal of posting every day. I'm somewhat under the weather with some throat/cough thing that crept up on me.  Then I was determined to find black letters for my tags.  I had moved my craft room to another floor and threw all the bins into a closet.  The bin with the letters was in the back of the closet.  Need I say more? Then I had to sort the letters.  You know, do I really have two "s", one for each tag?  You get the picture.  Then I sanded the coredinations paper and didn't like it so I had to die cut the carolers again. Finally, I had to come up with 6 buttons that were the same size.  Somehow the notion of sorting through buttons isn't so exciting or theraputic at midnight!
