Maple Leaf Tags



I have another quick, clean and simple creation to share today (two CAS days in a row!). I've been on the PTO Appreciation Committee at my children's elementary school for a few years now, and every so often I get the chance to whip up some kind of appreciation gift or packaging. Today, the cafeteria staff is receiving baskets of parent-donated food items. My {non-food} contribution - these maple leaf tags for the baskets.



I die-cut the maple leaf out of Riding Hood Red card stock using the largest of the Nested Maple Leaf Shapeabilities by Spellbinders, then repeatedly stamped the "thanks" sentiment (from Verve's Circular Sayings set) all over it in Riding Hood Red ink. The "from the" and "PTO" tags are done with JustRite New York Times font stamps. Quick and easy!

Thanks for visiting! Tomorrow, we'll be back to our regular programming: layer upon layer upon embellished layer of papercrafted yumminess {wink}.



Stamps: New York Times Complete Font Set (JustRite Stamps); Circular Sayings (Verve)
Paper: Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, and Very Vanilla card stock (Stampin' Up)
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up)
Accessories: maple leaf die (Spellbinders), Papertrey button, May Arts burlap string

Funny thing is, I am here in Ashburn visiting my Mom & sister. I talked my sis into driving me to Angela's Happy Stamper in Reston today. I had those maple leaf Nesties in my hand!!! I almost bought 'em! AND, I was thinking of you today as we were driving home from there! Then I come back to my sis's house & come on to check my mail and...
So, just wanted to tell u that! Love it!
