Tag wrap up post!

OK - I've about had it with tags!! LOL  So, today, I'm posting the remaining ones I made for my hubby's gift baskets:

Hero Arts reindeer embossed in black and colored with Distress Markers on watercolor paper.

Memory Box dies cut from green & red paper and Memory Box santa again embossed in black and colored with Distress Markers

Easy Peasy - Inky Antics stamp colored with Distress Markers

Lastly, this one I laid down red/white striped washi tape across tag leaving space in between.  Then I used green Distress Markers and perfect pearls for a nice shine between washi tape. I stamped sentiment on a thick vellum and wrapped around. Finally, embossed a Memory Box image and added bling for the lights.

If you're up for some more pictures...........here's how the basket-filling process went.  
I'll remind you......I had to do THIRTY of them.

Fresh from the store:

Fresh from the grocery store.  Yes - I wish I was an extreme coupon-er at this point!

Packed up!

OK - had to call in the reserves.  Mom is a PRO at cellophane wrap. So, I continued to pack the baskets and the pro wrapped them!!!

Buddy was NO HELP!!!

Ta-Dah!!!!!!!!

Completed!!!!!!

 Have a wonderful Monday!!!!! I hope to get around for blog visits today!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Wow, wow, wow! What a production! That is a ton of work, Maria, and I KNOW you must be SO relieved that this job is finished! Thank goodness you have your mom to help. They look incredible! Really wonderful gifts! Love your tags, too. The stripes with the washi are fabulous. Love the bling for the lights and Rudolph's nose, too!

So many beuatiful pics... That reindeer is ADORABLE. And that lady with the choco sentiment is so cute. I love how she asks for chocolate. And you are an amazing lady - to put together 30 baskets. Wonder what I would have done. Lol. Your mum looks pretty comfortable packing the cellophane. Love her smile.
