Christmas Mice Stirring (box, tag bag and tags)

I loved the Lawn Fawn 'A Creature was Stirring' stamp and die sets as soon as I saw them.  I do Christmas baking and so I knew they would be perfect for decorating my tags , bags or boxes.  The die set for the Lawn Fawn box is old but you might still be able to find it.  It makes a cute sized box that I thought might be perfect for a slab of my homemade peanut butter fudge.
It took a 12 x 12 sheet of printed card stock to make the box and the reverse side made the bottom  I like that the box die also makes the cute corner braces.  I used the Lawn Fawn banner die and stamped the cute saying on it.  The rest of the box was decorated in the usual way...stamping, coloring with Copic pens and die cutting the images before affixing them with foam dots.
Here is another of my tag bags which should hold some treats for someone special.  It took a 12x12 sheet of card stock to make the bag.  (Write to me in the comment area and leave your email address if you want me to send you directions for making a tag bag. I've explained it in earlier posts.)  
With the scraps from the box I made two large tags.  I also used up the extra images that were stamped and colored.
Because the tags seemed rather sparse in decorations, I added the garland with pips (from Ben Franklin Crafts).
I thought the garland was a bit too much so I only used snowflakes on this one.  The shanks were cut off  the Darice snowflake buttons before gluing them down. I was able to use up some snowflake card stock scraps on these projects, so that made me happy.  Any lessening of the stash pile is a good thing...right?  Keep smiling as you work on your holiday crafts!
