Tis the season for holiday gifting.
I really don't enjoy cooking or baking. I really just don't. Despite this fact, I managed to make 13 dozen iced buttermilk cookies to gift to teachers, bus drivers, and neighbors last year. I figured I would do my best to repeat the gesture this year. :)
I decided to dress-up some plain window coffee bags and make matching tags to gift my cookies in. I came up with a couple of different designs and liked them both so much that I thought I would use the snowflake design this year and save the poinsettia design for next year. LOL!
However, to make things more complicated, we have a new bus driver to add to the mix ... a male bus driver. Sooooo, I purchased the In the Meadow stamp set and created a masculine tag to adorn his bag of cookies. :)
Erin's precision glitter technique lent itself beautifully to these little tags. I used a Quickie Glue pen and glitter to highlight details on the snowflakes, veins on the poinsettia, and snow-topped hills on the meadow tag. The technique created just a touch of sparkle to make the tags look festive without over-doing it.

So, what do you think? Do you have a favorite set? I really do like them all!
Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
