Papertrey November blog hop challenge

 
Hi and welcome. This month's challenge was to design a holiday tag using some of our favourite products.

Perfect timing because I needed to make some tags for work gifts. This year I'm making chocolate cookies and other homemade treats for some of my co-workers.  The recipe for the cookies is from Nigella Lawson and the cookies are just divine! (You can download a copy of the recipe below).

So, here are my cookies:

And here are two of my tags.  I cut a jar layer from acetate (used the clear boxes PTI stamps come in) to layer over the stamped jar and give it that shiny look:



Supplies
Paper - SU Kraft, cosmo cricket jolly by golly patterned paper
Stamps - PTI firendship jar, friendship jar holiday fillers
Ink - versafine onyx black, memento lady bug, memento cottage ivy, stazon (for jar lid)
Accessories - PTI friendship jar die, jar label die, acetate, Quickkutz metal sheets, SU riding hood red striped grosgrain, PTI rustic cream button twine, green & red stickles, dimensionals.
