Inspire Me Monday - Quick Watercolored Tags

Hello Friends, How are you today? I am excited to be back for another Inspire Me Monday. For my post today I was inspired by the Power & Spark Challenge. You can read about it here

One of our holiday traditions is to make treats for family and to make some for the stockings. I love adding homemade treats to my children's stockings & it's kinda nice that they fill the stocking up pretty quickly. 

Putting the Chex Mix in a zip lock baggie was a practical choice for me. Then I saw the Power & Spark Challenge so I decided to ramp up my homemade treats with some homemade tags, ribbon & jingle bells.

Today I am watercoloring some quick tags to jazz up my Chex Mix bags. If you want to watch the video in HD click here


These tags really didn't take much time to cut out & I am grateful that they really made my homemade treats more special for the recipients. 

Adding some ribbon and jingle bells make my treats much more festive.

In case you might want to give this easy recipe a try here is the link. I always double the recipe and mix it all in a roasting pan and take that straight to the oven. 

Thanks for the opportunity to share with you today and I hope you all have a wonderful holiday filled with love. Hugs, Kathy

P.S. Yesterday I finished up some of these and they are quick to make and are always popular. If you want to see how quick here is a video for you. :)
