Washi Tags

Happy Saturday, peeps!  Wow, it has only been a few days that I haven’t posted, but it feels like forever!  My sweet friend Linda at The Catered Crop chose this card to highlight earlier this week and asked me to participate in this week’s challenge, which is to use Washi Tape!   So I searched my stash and realized I had more than I thought!!!   I wanted to do something other than a card, so I looked through my “alterable” box and found these tags I bought a looooooong time ago at my local office supply store.  Once I got started, I couldn’t’ stop!!!
I don’t usually make tags for my Christmas gifts because we all know where they end up, but I felt that using up some of my stash of alterables was a good sign that I am working on not hoarding stuff, LOL!  Here are some closeups:
All the tags use the washi tape along the bottom edge; they are from various sources, including Stampin Up, Martha Stewart and another company that I can’t remember (because I threw out the packaging!).  The images are from various sources; if you want to know a specific image, send me an email (NOT a comment) and I’ll do my best to let you know the manufacturer.  As I said, I had a blast making these and will gladly embellish my gifts this year with them!  Be sure to pop over to The Catered Crop to see what else those clever stampers have come up with!
I know Halloween is over, but I wanted to share with you some cookie-making we did earlier in the week:
We rolled out the dough and cut it with Halloween cookie cutters:
After decorating them with sprinkles and baking them, we put them on a plate:
But the best part was giving Grampy a green bat-shaped cookie!  (He doesn’t look too sure of this, but he ate it!!!)
Thanks for visiting today!  Be sure to stop back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

Hey LeAnne, Darling tags for gift giving. You could also use them as a gift to someone for their own use. Been busy organizing my house. Have a good one. Hugs, Bev

Who has the best Washi tape? I know I have some I don't like and it turns me off to trying new one. I had my hands on some today and didn't come home with it because I was afraid it would make me nuts if it didn't stick.
Your tags are wonderful! I love the colors and the images and everything!!!
Oh those cookies do look good! What fun! Thanks for sharing all the fun.

LeAnne, these Christmas Tags are just the cutest ever! And won't they look nice on those Christmas presents next month (can you believe it!). I bet these won't be going in the "you know where place" *laughing* And if they do, someone get's coal in their stocking the following year! haha

Congratulations on your win at Catered Crop. You're a winner in my book!
