I didn't end up using this die to make an advent calendar this year even though I thought the project in the mini catalog was gorgeous. I am into the kid advent stuff so I used the big red advent boxes we sold last year. Drew's elf leaves legos in each box. Very cool. I digress.
I used this die to make the tags for my gifts this year. Here's how it goes down. I find a Christmas paper I like and then I come home and match it to one of our 50+ colors of cardstock. Pool Party matched this paper perfectly! Then, I checked with my color coach and it said that Pool Party went with Chocolate Chip and Wild Wasabi...Well, I couldn't make the Wasabi go on this project, but the other combo was perfect! Then I match it with the ribbon I found at Michael's too. Chocolate Chip and Pool Party. It was like it was made for me! Ok...more info than you needed to know. Shoot, I just realized that I added the ribbon after I took this picture. Oh well, you would have liked it :)
