Muffin Labels

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I was busy all day Saturday.  A "labor of love" actually.  Yesterday was my and John's turn to bring snacks to our Sunday School class. No problem. I decided to make muffins.  So, I made 12 blueberry, 12 Banana nut, and 12 apple cinnamon.  All for a class of  13 but only ten of us were there.  I knew I was making way too many, but I decided to leave them in the office for the staff to snack on the next day.  The baking was the easy part.  The time consuming part was this:  (I'll explain all at the end of the pictures)
Tadah!  These are the labels I made for each muffin.  Was I crazy or what.  I punched 216 times!  144 circles, 36 scalloped circles and 36 holes for the ribbon! The only part of the labels I stamped was the apple.  The rest are computer generated.
Here is the recipe:
Stamps:      Apple from the now retired Tart n' Tangy.  
Ink:              Real Red and Old Olive
Computer:  banana, blueberries, verse.  The fruit are clips from
                   Microsoft clip art.
Paper:        Real Red from SU and the other colors are from
                   the craft store.
Ribbon:      1/8" white also cut 36 times :) and tied in a bow
Cellophane:   Green is all I had.  I probably got it for some 
                       other holiday; perhaps Christmas?  Torn 36 times. 
Whew! can you see why I was so pooped at the end?  But, I enjoyed doing it and as I said, it was a labor of love!  Now ask me when I'll be doing it again? lol!
