Not So Secret Santa Swap...

So I joined this swap over at 2Peas. I'm gonna try my luck out somewhere else. I've never had much luck doing swaps on I usually end up with the short end of the stick:( I always see all these amazing packages people send each other over on 2Peas, so I thought I'd give it a shot over there and hope I don't get burned...again:(

The swap has a whole little "schedule" we need to follow of when we need to send certain things to our pal before the actual "big" gift package. Over the course of the weeks working up to Christmas we need to be sending our pal cards along with little "gifts" such as their favorite candy, their favorite scented candle, a holiday themed scrap goodie, etc.

I wanted to start working on my cards today, but then I had a really cool idea. I thought of making her tags instead. She could then use the tags on LOs or projects. The cards wouldn't really serve any kind of purpose so I thought this would be WAY better;)

These are the two I came up with today. I got the inspiration from another peas' gallery except hers were Halloween cards:)

I used my Cricut Storybook cart to cut the shapes. Then I used last years MM Christmas paper pack I got at T's. I love the vintage look of it. The poinsettias are also from that same line. I love how they turned out:)

That's all for today:)

These turned out beautiful! I'm sure your "pal" is going to love them! Great idea to make the tags instead of cards!
