Today it’s time for my annual tradition of baking plates of goodies for the neighbors.  Every year around December 1st I say, “No way, I’m not doing all that baking this year.”  But then, once I’ve got the house decorated, the presents all bought or made & wrapped, it just seems like the thing to do.

Here’s my kitchen table all filled with sweet treats ready to be delivered.  I usually just buy pretty paper Christmas plates, cover with lengths of plastic wrap and tie on a ribbon bow.  Easy enough!

Here’s a plate of  my snickerdoodles.  Were they supposed to spread that much?  I didn’t think so, but they’re still yummy.

Here’s a close up of the tags I made.  I used the Sizzix Scallop Tag set (red die).

To got the printing perfectly lined up with each tag I first scanned the die into my computer, then imported the image into Printmaster – Platinum Version 18  .  I sized the image to be exactly the same as the die, then made text boxes to fit the tags.  I drew a box around the outside edge of the die and then deleted the original image.  Now I have a perfectly sized template.

You can fit four of these (with a little overlap) on one 8.5″ x 11″ sheet.  Just make sure to carefully cut on the lines on at least two sides, line them up with the edges of your die and cut away.

Hope you have time to enjoy some holiday baking.
