Dressing up......Nougat.....

My stamping friends tease me that I never go anywhere without thinking about stamping....Sad to say, but sometimes it's true.  I was wandering around Aldi the other day, and found these little treats.

The gold wrapping caught my eye, and I had to think......."I could make something with these".  What did I come up with?


And to get rid of the not so special blue on the original packaging....


just add a strip of co-ordinating DSP.  Pop 4 into the pillow box made from acetate, and look what you get.   Gotta love it, right?  Makes a quick, impressive, yet inexpensive gift for Christmas......I'm thinking all those extra teachers at, sport, art, etc.

Here is a close up of my tags.  I've used the markers to just colour the little pictures from the full stamp and then punched them out with the jewellery tag punch.  Simple, hey?

Card stock:  Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Acetate
Ink: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler
Stamps: Gifted
Other: Old Olive wide grosgrain ribbon, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stamp'n'Write markers, Jolly Holiday DSP, Linen Thread, Jewellery Tag Punch, Pillow Box Die, Big Shot

Happy Stamping.....Manda
