Just Tagging Along

A quick post tonight, my crafty friends, as I have a hot date with a good book!  As I said in my last post, it's great to be focusing on Christmas now and that means presents, of course.  And presents need tags so tonight's post is for this week's Totally Papercrafts Challenge, which is 'tags'.

Papers: October Afternoon, 'Good Cheer' collection; Cosmo Cricket 'Mitten Weather' collection

Unusually for me, this project required no colouring - just a bit of assembly, really.  I took some white luggage label tags and folded each almost in half.  I covered the inside back and the outside flap in co-ordinating papers, added a large punched snowflake, a felt heart, some buttons a little sentiment (produced on the PC), some ribbon and, of course, a sprinkle of snowy glitter for good measure. 

I cut a little half circle tab in the 'back' so that the front could sit under it to keep it closed.  Inside the tag is some white space for writing your message:

 A really simple little project - one of those you can do while watching TV too!  Guess what colour our Christmas is going to be this year!!!

So, off to link up and off to meet my Kindle - aaaaah, the joys of reading.

Happy crafting.

  4. These are just fabulous. Love the colour combo and how you added the 'rippled' sentiment. Clever way to keep them closed too with that half circle.
