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!
Simply leave a comment on my blog to be eligible to win the Spellbinders Holiday Hoppin’ Prize Package! One winner will be chosen from all the comments on all the blogs participating today. Comments made in the first 48 hours of this post will be eligible to win. Winner’s names will be published on the Spellbinders Blog on November 22, and they will have 48 hours to reply to Spellbinders to claim the prizes. Fun stuff! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Labels fifteen and sixteen certainly do group nicely, Julie. Perky colors for subtle Shrinky Dink situations, elegant and distinguished make those stem identifiers rock. Fine work!
Lovin' E's photo and all the bling to shine on her! Have to pop one in of the new structure down the way sporting ski slope roofing, snazzy!
