Gifts from Scraps?

Another card from the scraps on my table, this one is just under an a-2 size and the images are from Lockhart stamps.
Now, when you live in a small town that the only craft store is Joann's and there are 3 local scrapbook stores that tells you things for paper crafters ( if they get it in at all) sell out really fast... so most the time i end up throwing away my Joann's coupons because there is not much that is not on sale... but recently i stopped in mine because i still had that last coupon and i found these Christmas tins in rectangle shapes. the snowman is the lid and reads count your blessings. I have been making the scraps on my table into little note cards and gift tags...

So most of these are 3X3 in size. the image is a gift from the lady who answers my phone at work she bought this set, and i had said out loud before she did that the only image in the set i wanted was this one so i would not be buying it, and she has very large flowing swirly handwriting and she feels like she could not write names on this tag so she gave me this stamp. so, I have been trying to put some things together with it.
This is the largest one of the recent cleaning spree this one is 4X4 in real life. there's some gold glitter glue in the corners and that is machine sewing on the mats.
These ones have way too much glitter glue on them, was thinking some may need longer ribbons to tie onto packages.
I may not stick the ones that are not Christmasy into the Christmas tins, thinking to set them aside for "every day" type gifts and get plain containers to put the tags into. I know i read that SU makes envelopes that fit 3x3 sized cards but when i put tags on things i mostly let them stick out so, not sure i will buy the envelopes or not yet. This green ribbon came to me from Jan tied on an Rak Gift for my birthday. Thanks Jan!
this one is creative imaginations printed paper with some gold stickles in the centers and then the sentiment is stamped on a scrap then trimmed with mini scallop deco scissors. The gold ribbon came to me tied to an RAK gift from Jan. :)

I don't think that there is too much thing as too much glitter- that's like saying too much chocolate!
(Thanks so much for the labbies- they were very happy mail.)
I really like the little 3 x 3 cards- they are such a fun size.
