Tag It stamp set

Good morning!  I have a quick post for you.  My parents have been sick the last week and a half, so I wanted to give them a little something to say 'get well'.  I came up with this little box from Stampin' Up!'s Tag A Bag Gift Box set, and the Tag It stamp set.  These little boxes are soooooo cute and really fun to use, decorate and give away.  The kit comes with 8 boxes, pre scored acetate sleeves and measure 6 7/8'' x 2 1/8'' x 2 1/2''.  They are so neat.

 I made a birthday one that I fell in love with so much I couldn't give it away.  I'll share that another day.  I stamped some basic gray cardstock with the get well stamp in basic gray (you could use versamark ink too), cut and scored it to match the dimensions of the box, and slid it in between the box and the acetate sleeve.  I filled the box with some snickerdoodles (one of my dad's favorite kind of cookies), tied the box up with some real red grosgrain ribbon (retired, sorry!), added some baker's twine and the tag, and was done!  I colored the stamp with markers to get the different colors.  I used basic gray, real red and midnight muse.  Easy, cute and fun!

See you tomorrow!
