Lip Balm Holders

I chose to make these cute fall lip balm holders for a swap group I'm participating in....once I figured out the cutting/size (lol) these were very easy to make. My biggest hurdle was what/how to decorate the front?! Enjoy~
I've had a few people ask me for the poem used inside the holder....enjoy~

You’ve Made A Difference
As Thanksgiving Day approaches,
my blessings I recall;
the things I am most
thankful for,
I recollect them all.
You are really special,
in all you say and do.
You’ve made a difference
in my life;
I’m thankful now for you.

Labels Framelits

Here is another gift tag idea (inspiration from my friend Kim Overholdt). I used the Labels Framelits, Forestwood Lodge stamp set....on the back I added another small Framelits piece stamped from the Apothecary Art set to hold a business card, money or gift card! Picture shows two tags; front and back. Super easy!

Holiday Tags

I made these quick an easy gift tags....the 3x3 note card was made with the Boho Blossom punch with the Petals a Plenty embossing folder. Other other tag (my favorite) was made with the Two Tags Bigz Die and the cute "Mr Waddles" was made with the Owl Punch. Just trim off his ears and voila....a penguin! (thank you Shannon for letting me borrow it!) Enjoy~
