For everything there is a season and for Passover gifts too

Passover is just around the corner and I decided that I need to make some small handmade presents. This altered clear box is a pure recycling (thanks Tim Holtz embossers for such a lovely big pillow boxes to reuse).
I already made some for Halloween, but this one is a very first made for Passover tags (thanks, dear The Rubber Cafe for those fantastic Jewish stamps!)
So  the box was altered and then filled (not to the edge) with 2 more gift tags for the future use.

This is the full box view, with both tags inside.Here is an empty altered box.

For the box I made 2  tags, using the  best ever paper I found - The Rubber Cafe Pugnacious White Signuture paper. Just perfect for stamping, heat embossing, inking with water, distressing- still looks like new!

 For the bigger tag I stamped this Ecclesiastes  stamp with Truffle ink, heat embossed with Clear embossing powder . The Clock stamp is from Vintage Treasures set- stamped with blue  ink several times and heat embossed again. Then all tag was inked with distressed inks, watered and I added some " blood" drops with red paint.

The smaller tag was stamped with the Script stamp from the Steampunk  Charity Wings set  and heat embossed too, The 2 other stamps from this set were added and I made the brownish distressed color again.
Both tags  were  adhered with One and Only glue tape, the same tape was used to glue the ribbons from RRR shop.

Both tags were embellished with more ribbons and i added a couple of Prima flowers. The box was done and now for  more tags in the box.
I made 2 completely different tags here: one is pastel and cute and the second is shabby and dark, but I actually used the same Tree of Life set.

For the pastel tag I made Shalom word stamping- all 3 different stamps with Jasmine  ink and clear heat embossing and then added 3 colors of Distress Stains (Broken China, Pine Needles ,Tattered Rose). I teared the piece, glued it with Scrap Happy glue and stamped the Dove over it with Green ink.

One of 3 tree stamps was  stamped, heat embossed and glued on the corner. 2 buttons and a ribbon (RRR again) were added to finish this tag.

The second tag was made with Basic Backgrounds 2  Dots stamp- white ink, clear embossing, stamping all 3 Shalom word stamps over it and inked with some distress inks
I added a ribbon strip to cover some stamping mistakes (it works, believe me), again with One and Only tape.

Another tree stamps from Tree of Life was stamped, heat embossed and inked.
And now the box and both tags again- hope you like them.

And to the punch line: Shalom (means PEACE AND HELLO in Hebrew), is our family name. So I just signed the tags without signing them.
See your with my next project and wish your all a very Happy Easter and Passover!
