Scrap happy angels!

   Happy Saturday!  I have a couple of  projects to share with you today.  I happen to have kind of a soft spot in my heart for angels so when I saw these adorable cuties on Dawn's blog this morning  I decided they would be a perfect addition to a quick and easy project for today, so I set off to work!  I added a few of my own little tweaks to change them up a bit and personalize them some.  They are super simple to make and I thought they would be perfect for Christmas tags.  I made a couple of tags using only the scraps I had laying on my table and also made a teeny little box using only my scraps.  (that would be the reason for non- matching colors today!)

Tag #1 uses the Top Note die cut in half. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny wishes.

Tag #2 uses the other half! The  sentiment is from Dear Santa in the holiday mini.

The angel is made from:

Head: 3/4" Circle punch
Hair: CupCake Builder punch
Bangs: 3/4" Circle punch (cut)
Wings: Butterfly punch
Hands: Circle from 3 Pack Punch set
Dress: Pennant Punch

The wings are punched from the gorgeous Silver Glimmer Paper and the dresses are all decorated from the Pennant Parade stamp set.

Used lots of pop dots to add dimension to these little ladies.

Hand drawn faces give them each their own little personality!  This tiny box holds 2 mini candy bars perfectly.  It was made from a 5.5" square.  I scored at 2" all the way around in a tic tac toe pattern and then trimmed the outside flaps so that it would all fold together and adhered it.  These would make great stocking stuffers or a quick gift for the mail lady, maybe your bank teller or the UPS guy!

Side view.

Thoughts of Christmas are starting to make their way into my little pea brain!  It will be here before we know it!  Thought it wouldn't hurt to start getting a few things prepped and ready! :)

Are you enjoying the weekend?  Sure hope so!  I am!  Weather here is cool, but beautiful.  Started my weekend with a walk on the beach today...doesn't get much better than that!

I will be back tomorrow with more to share!  Have a wonderful Saturday and I will see you soonest!
