Scrapblocks™ and Nugget Wraps~
The perfect combination! I created nugget labels using a 6 x 6 pieces of white card stock stamped with the Perfect Plaid Scrapblock™ by Cornish Heritage Farms in various Adirondack colors. After stamping, trim the stamp piece into 12 perfectly sized 1" x 3" strips, no wasted paper or anything. And it will wrap all the way around the label compared to mailing labels that leave that pesky little gap on the underside. PLUS, the cost savings is tremendous, 36 labels were created with 3 stamped pieces, so ..... well, I'd have to compute the math, but I do believe it's much less than buying labels.
Anyway, I was so glad I figured this out! Today's Blitz Challenge was to combine a Kim Hughes set with any other CHF set. I made these to match that clear tag I made a while ago that will be Brett's gift for his teacher. One of these tins will go inside along with a gift card and set of coordinated thank you cards. I designed the decorative panel to just sit on the top of the tin to conserve paper and make the tins easier for the recipient to open. It's attached with Scor-Tape. Better get cracking on those other coordinated projects as I only have until Wednesday! The other 2 tins are gifts as well, in addition I will be creating a few more before Wednesday to give as end of year gifts. Nothing like having a timely plan. :)
