Christmas Gift Tags

When you have three kids, you have LOTS of people to give to at Christmas. I want those who help me and my kids on a daily basis to know how much we appreciate them. I like to give out little bags of our favorite Crack Corn (see recipe below) to all our teachers at school. This year, I'm giving out 31 bags! Wow!!

There's just no way I can make that many cards or gifts, so I settled for some cute gift tags. I can handle making 31 (+about 10 more fur hubby's work) of these!

This Joyful Tidings stamp from Christmas Messages is turning into my favorite sentiment this year. I love the way it looks embossed as well! the gingerbread man come from Sweet Christmas Digital Download. I cut them out with mu Cameo. I used the little Christmas tree punch and the smallest heart Frametlit. 

I just love these! The chalkboard trend is still hot in my craft room! ;-)

I hope you're getting all your Christmas Crafting done! It's almost here!!
Have a great Thursday!

Microwave Caramel Corn (Crack Corn)
½ C. butter
1 C. brown sugar
¼ C. dark Karo syrup
Dash of salt
Microwave on high 4 mn. in a glass bowl. Stir after 2 mn.

Then add:
½ t. baking soda
1/8 t. vanilla
Stir until fluffy. Pour this over the puffed popcorn (I use one full bag of the popcorn) that is in a large Tupperware bowl (or one that is ok to go back into the microwave.) Stir this up, then microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute.

Spread this out on wax paper to let it cool.
Melt 3-4 squares of White Almond bark and drizzle over the popcorn.


The puffcorn I buy is the same thing as "Pirate's Booty" that I see everywhere, but this is much cheaper! I get it at HEB, Target and almost every gas station around here sells it! It's always $2 a bag!
The puffcorn looks like this:
