Christmas Gift Tags

I made a bunch of gift tags with my mom last weekend. It was so fun...we crafted for hours! My mom lives in San Diego, and I live in Los Angeles, so it's a treat to get to craft with her. Something I didn't fully take advantage of when I still lived in SD. (My hubby and I moved to LA about 5 months ago.)

This first tag is stamped with a Ms. Holiday Cheer stamp, colored with CTMH markers and blending pen. Her hat has glitter for the "fuzzy" parts. Then I punched a scalloped circle from Jingle paper to back the tag. So cute!

This is next tag is 3" x 3", made from CTMH White Daisy textured cardstock. The inspiration was the glittery ribbon I picked up at Michael's on a whim. I love it and have gone back to get more and can't find it again :( I also used Martha Stewart's snowflake edge punch. This made for a simple, yet beautiful little gift tag. I used a Sponge Dauber to sponge around it in Juniper ink, which really makes it pop. And I also put a piece of ribbon and Juniper cardstock on the inside so the Juniper shows through the snowflakes when the tag is closed.

Really like the simplicity of the square tag. The punched border and the inked edges are just perfect with the ribbon and inside paper.
