Christmas Tags in a Cute Box

Our team made this cute box with acetate lid and tags at our holiday mega meeting. I took a fun class at Papertales! You can do either type of tags in the box. Box instructions by LeeAnn here.
I also saw this idea in Lisa Stenz's blog & Vicki Wizniuk's blog! Thanks for the inspiration girlfriends!

a holiday poem & origami Santa

Twas the night before Christmas, I'm glued to the tree.
I’m wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be cardstock or inkpads or lace?
Or some stamps, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him.....
"Hi Santa," I said
He replied, "You know...good girls should be in their beds."
"I know I should Santa, and now I've been caught.
But I was just so excited to see what you brought."
"Well, let's take a look in this room where you work."
He shook his head quickly, and left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim as he put it gear.
"You've got enough crap,
I'll see you next year!"

(found the poem on the ctmh bulletin board-from a scrapbook store in Arkansas!)
Santa How-to here
(Heather P. this was the folding challenge you missed at the meeting-would love to see your version:)
Anyone up for the challenge?

Sermon Sunday

I am fairly certain, given a cape and a tiara, I could save the world!
Life is tough, I recommend getting a manicure and a really cute helmet.
