Name tag

Simple name tag using A Muse alpha set, The Cat's Pajamas die, SU scallop border punch, and spellbinders nestabilities. Paper by Cosmo Cricket Material Girl. I would have needed a giant name tag to use my screen name "Gamblemom". I tries every way I could think of to add it but decided to just use my real name. Getting excited now that I am finished getting everything prepped.

Doorprize Austin Area Shoebox swap 2010

Well here it is. Nothing fancy and mostly store bought. I was not a good planner this year. I put off making my door prize until the last minute. I ended up altering some wooden coasters from KaiserCraft by painting and covering with papers from Basic Grey Jovial line, then varnished them. I sanded the base to distress it. Then I made a skinny lined notepad from PTI, covered with more Basic Grey papers. Then I made a matching RSVP pen. I bought the Jovial paper pack and matching brads and the BoBunny family alterable album. The tag is just decorating the gift bag everything goes in.
I wish I was one of those eenlightened creative people that come up with all kinds of cool gifts for door prizes. Oh well. I would want these things if I won them so I went with it. In fact I bought myself the paper too LOL
