Christmas Tags

Every year I make lots of tags from snippets of cardstock and give them away to friends and neighbors who can use them. I always keep those small bits of paper and cardstock that can be useful for small items like tags. This was made with a very old Quickutz die called "Cookies" and some glittered gold cardstock. I used a Lil Inker diagonal stitched die to make the sentiment panel and added mini brads all over the tree for decorations.

I used the same Quickutz die for this tag, cutting both panels and layering them. The top layer cuts holes for ornaments, so I added some glittered gold negative cuts along with a red gemstone for the top. I added a snippet of red & green dsp for interest.

I'm sharing these tags over at the "Tag it" Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.

I'm also taking them over to the Snippets Playground #207 which is to use snippets on our projects.

Happy Monday, and thanks for stopping by!

Great tags Carol and what a lovely thought to give them away to be used by others.

That tags shape is perfect with the tree die you used - ha, I bet some might find these too good to use :)

What a terrific idea to give these away. You are such a good friend and neighbor. I love both of these and also love both the ribbons you used with them. The tops look very special with the gold cord cinching up the ribbons. Fun, colorful and festive little tags. Have a fun evening.
