Tiny Little Books Revealed - Finally!

Happy day before Christmas Eve!  Really?  Is it really almost Christmas?  I've been a bad, bad blogger!  December feels like it went by in a second, ha, ha, ha.

About a month ago (again, really?) I gave you a sneak peak on some tiny books I had been thinking about for a long time and finally got them done.  If you are still with me today is reveal day.

These books are gift tag holders.  I wanted some small books that you can keep in a drawer or with your wrapping things to have some ready made tags available to attach to gifts.

The inside of each book has pockets to hold the gift tags ready for use at a moments notice.

I die cut a bunch of gift tags using Tim Holtz Sizzix mini tabs and tags die and another Sizzix tag die.   Then "to" and "from" was stamped on each one.  Some are just plain, others have more stamping or embellishments.  Various twine and string was tied on so they would be ready to attach to a package. 

I made tags for all year round including at least one for each major holiday.  Also made sure to include both feminine and masculine styles.  

It was fun to pull papers from my stash to make the covers and tags.  The tabs that hold the book closed are made using the same Sizzix tag die from grunge board and inked with Distress Ink to match the covers. 

These made great gifts for some of my best girlfriends and were received with rave reviews.  So nice to feel the love!

I have another recent project to share after Christmas.  It is a gift and I don't want to spoil the surprise.  Shhhhhh!

I hope that you are in the Christmas spirit and are making preparations for a wonderful holiday.  I got into the spirit by baking some cookies.

Merry Christmas!  Thank You for stopping by.  I promise it won't be so long in between blog posts!  Love to get your comments and appreciate you taking the time to do so.

Hugs,  Sharon
