Today I am using Spellbinders S4-296 Nested Hearts die template, and some of Flourishes fabulous stamps! I created...
Project #1: Easy Wine Charms! All it takes is the Nested Hearts dies, a sanding block (to prep the Shrinky Dinks plastic), Shrink Plastic, the hardware for a wine charm, a fine tip permanent pen and a rhinestone!

After using the die to cut the Shrinky Dink plastic, I used a fine tip pen to add a decorative flair, cook the plastic, add the rhinestone and....you have a "ready to wear" wine charm! Use different rhinestones to keep one color per glass/guest!
Project #2: Photo Ornament
Take your favorite photo and make it an accent for a loved one's tree! I used the Nested Hearts, some rhinestones, gold rubb-a-buff (to accent the embossed areas of the die) and then accented with Flourishes' Dove and Holly (just the holly accent stamp). Add some sparkly ribbon and... done!

Project #3: Gift Tags
All you need is one stamp set -- A Gift for You -- by Flourishes and a handful of your favorite dies to create these easy gift tags! I used S4-290 Labels Fourteen, S4-301 Labels Sixteen, S4-291Labels Fifteen, S4-114 Classic Circles, and S4-292 Beaded Circles. And, here's a peek at what you can create....


Create a small box for your tags and a cumberbund label...

And... done! Easy tags you can give as a gift if you like!
