Sneak Peek: The Greeting Farm!

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

Good Morning again!

I'm soooooo excited to be showing you a sneak peek this morning of one of the new sets being released from The Greeting Farm!! Along with my fellow Fall Gardeners and the fabulous Farmers, you're going to see sneak peeks all over the place this morning!

One of the new sets being released is the Merry Tags set and it's exactly what I'm going to use on all my Christmas gifts this year!

I went to Michaels yesterday and found this awesome bucket in the aisle bins! So I snatched it up and made up a cute little container for Christmas cookies! The Christmas tree is from one of the tags. I just masked it off to create this little medallion for the bucket. I also made a complete tag and attached it to the other side of the bucket.

To make the bucket I just created a long band to fit around the circumference of the bucket and glued it down with some tacky strip glue. Then I added an ornament (from Michaels) and some ribbon and the cookies and it was done! These buckets were all the rage last year, but I've never made one until now but I'm telling you - they're addictive!!

The Cookie-In-A-Jar is just a quick thing to whip up by using a recycled glass jar and some fun Christmas fabric. Add some ribbon, a button and one of the Merry Tags and you've got yourself a great, inexpensive gift! The possibilities for these tags are endless!
