A Trio of Holiday Tags

 Good Morning Crafty Friends!

We're creating tags today...these would be ideal for presenting a gift card--just add a paper pocket on the reverse side along with your written message...OR, give them as your Holiday card that could be hung on the Christmas tree.  Either way, they're just plain fun to make and receive.

Tag Trio-Jenny Griffiths

All three tags were created with a #8 kraft tag base.

Snow Globe Tag-Jenny Griffiths

These holiday hats have always been one of my favorite Memory Box dies.  By cutting them from different colored paper you can give them extra pizzaz-- and why not show them swirling inside the snow globe?

 It's a good idea to stamp the Snowfall stamp on plain white cardstock then line up the snow globe circle die over the stamped image.  (Ask me how I know that!)  After a few unsuccessful attempts to get a perfect impression on the die cut snow globe I figured that out.  

This is a fun tag that doesn't take much time and as you can see, I cut the Frosty Border die into a few segments and added them here and there on the tag with gemstones added for sparkle.

Now for the Ornament Tag...

Ornament Tag-Jenny Griffiths

 This is also a pretty quick tag to make.  I sometimes forget about using the Library Alphabet Tags but they come in very handy when you need small letters and since we're making tags today--It's fitting! The Star Garland is really very versatile--here I colored the stars yellow and cut the garland into sizes that would drape across the tag.

And finally, the Bundled Penguin Tag... this little guy "speaks to me".  He looks a little chilly and should head inside pretty soon...that snow is really coming down!  I tore off the corner of the the Bluebird Distressed Dots paper and added a piece of Licorice Dot paper behind it.  I like a torn look sometimes, especially when the paper has a white core like all the Memory Box papers.  Again, clear gemstones were added to the snowflakes---of course!Penguin Tag-Jenny Griffiths
