12 Weeks of Crafty Christmas Makes. Week 1 - Tags in a Box using Stampin' Up! Supplies

And a warm welcome to my new series - 12 Weeks of Crafty Christmas Makes.
I'm so pleased to be sharing this series of exciting projects with you over the coming weeks, leading up to the big day. I'll be posting every Saturday with a new idea or tutorial for you to try out each week and I'd love to see your versions of these projects too, please do send me a link and I'll share it here too :-)
OK, so let's get started with this series and my first weeks project. I have designed this cute set of tags with a matching storage box in a Smoky Slate and Pool Party colour combo using a selection of stamp sets. The stamp set you need for these tags is the Cozy Christmas set as it has a "To and From" sentiment included. I also used Wonderland (my favourite stamp set this year, I think) and Flurry of Wishes. Take a look...
 Here are all the tags I made. These tags are extra quick and easy to make with either of the tag topper punches, I have used the ornate topper here though. Add in some simple stamping with plenty of room to write and not forgetting the all important bling at Christmas; Dazzling Diamonds glitter! 
 And here's a close up of the box I designed to store them in...
 So, lets see the video
Here are the measurement in centimeters and inches for those who prefer written instructions. Remember they make more sense though after you watch the video!
In cm: 21cm x 9.5cm, score along short edge at 2cm from each side. Score along long side at 8.3cm and 10.3cm. Measure down on the long side to 2.3cm and trim from 2cm score line to mark.
In inches: 8+1/4" x 3+3/42, score along short edge at 15/16" from each side. Score along long side at 3+1/4" and 4+1/16". Measure down on the long side to 7/8" and trim from 15/16" score line to mark.
Well, thats the first week, done!
