I love going to my local office supply shop! I love finding boring things, and upcycling them to make something, well, pretty :-) .
Here's what I found at my last visit:

|Stamps: Delicate Doilies; Tags 4 You (Holiday Mini), Ink: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler; Punch: Label Bracket Punch, Corner rounder, Fibres: Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine|
|Stamps: Magnificent Maple (Holiday Mini), Tags 4 You; Ink: Gold ink, Early Espresso, Soft Suede; Other - corner rounder punch, Island Indigo Baker's Twine|
They were easy to mass produce into groups of six the same and put them into little boxes I made from cardstock and some acetate (I have a stack of leftover acetate book binding sheets, which are also cheaply obtained from an office supply shop). Unfortunately, I didn't keep notes of the measurements I used to make the boxes, but they were easy to make. I used sticky strip to adhere the boxes together (awesome stuff), and tied with a ribbon.
I made these tags for a customer to give as Christmas presents. I'm currently making a stack more to sell at a Market next week. Wouldn't they make lovely Secret Santa gifts?
As always, you can make these yourselves and order these stamps and inks, etc from me, via my online store , or by contacting me.
