Cinnamon Almonds....and Print on a Tag Instructions

 Here's a  two in one tutorial....cinnamon almond to print on tags.  First up, the nuts.  Seriously, this is what heaven smells like.  So....if you need a little heaven in your house...and mouth....this is an super easy recipe for incredbily delicious almonds. I got the original recipe from richestoragsbydori.
Cinnamon Almond Nuts
Ingredients:  3 cups of almonds (salted or unsalted), 1 1/2 c. sugar, 1 1/2 c. brown sugar, 3 T cinnamon, 1/8 t. salt, 1 egg white, 2 t. vanilla, 1/4 c. water
Instructions:  Mix the sugars, cinnamon, and salt.  
In a separate bowl whisk the egg white and vanilla until it's froth.  Add the almonds and coat completely.  
Add the cinnamon mix and toss to coat.  
Spray a crock pot with cooking spray and add your almond mix.  
Cook on low 3-4 hours (stirring every 20 minutes).  In the last hour, add 1/4 c. of water and stir well.  (This makes it crunchy).  Cook at least 45 minute after adding the water.  Spread the almonds on parchment paper to cool.  Separate them a little (they will stick to the nuts near them, so avoid large mounds of nuts.  
Once you've got your nuts, add a tag.  I created a little video you can watch here for how you can print on tags/envelopoes, cards etc.
