Something else from the vault, and I think I'm getting old...

My lower back is killing me. I have NO flippin' idea what I did, but it hurts like a mofo. I don't remember doing any extra heavy lifting or anything... jeebus.

So, very quickly, here is another blast from the past: Merry Matchboxes. I picked up these large white matchboxes (they're like 3"x4" or so) online from Oriental Trading Company.

I covered them with TAC's Merry Wishes paper, and created some small accent tags. I also created gift tags w/ a Sizzix large paper clip die, Palette inks, and a couple of TAC stamp sets (Snow Tag and I Love Snowmen). I LOVE that little snowman with wings. I also included a little sheet of pink tissue paper inside.
These are perfect for gift cards, bracelets, or you can cover chocolate nuggets [mine usually don't make it into the box :) ]

That's it! I'm going to bed (at 9pm... what an old lady). Anyway, about the boxes...
What do you think?

I got your adorable card and paper bag yesterday. What a wonderful surprise. I really love that image you used on the card and the paper bag rocks. I'm so going to have to try that. Thanks for thinking of me!
