In today's mail I received my Alice in wnderland swap book from Karla Nathan. Karla started this back in feb. and said 30 people was the limit. Well the requests kept coming and then there were over 60. More kept coming and she probably did not want to turn anyone away so she ended up somewhere between 80 and 90. Now all we had to do was send in 6 tags with the Alice theme and Karla made a card for each of us and ordered the small bottles for the potion. She decorated all the little bottles and when the cards started coming in she had to arrange them all and thread all 6 tags along with her cover tag on ribbon to form the book. The little bottle she bubble wrapped and shipped seperately from her card in case it would break.

I took a picture of the way she wrapped both items and wrapped them in Alice paper from an old book. Then she had to package and mail them. Karla Nathan is really the good Queen of Hearts.

I would also like to say that the quality of the tags was stupendous. So much time must have gone into making these and they sure show it. I spent a lot on mine but I did not know what I was doing as this was my first tag swap and first tags made. I will sure enjoy looking at these over and over and learning so much from them.

I am going to have to show the pictures in groups as blogger will not let me enter more then 5 at a time.

The first 2 pics are of the way she wrapped them - imagine doing this all those times.
The 3rd is a pic of the little potion bottle.
The 4th is all the cards together.
The 5th is the front of Karla's card. Notice the little door on the bottom.

WOW! I love these. How fun and creative. They will make a great little keepsake.

The "drink me" bottle is too cute.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!
