yep, i made two tags, because coincidentally, i'm going to be seeing two friends, together, in a holiday context this week. so after i made the tags, i made bags to put them on:
to make the tags, i combined loads of diecuts in white and cream and gold, which helpfully used up a bunch of ancient paper scraps. i piled all the pretty things on top of hand-cut tag shapes that i made from plain cardstock scraps, because i didn't happen to have any premade tags that were big enough, lol.
to make the bags, i took ordinary plain white bags from the big box store, and hot-glued bits of lace neatly, all around the bags, one layer at a time. the only tricky-- or at least counterintuitive-- thing is that it's easiest to attach the layers of lace from the bottom up, rather than from the top down. so it's a bit crucial that you "lay out" your trimmings before you begin, and maybe add a few light pencil markings on the bags to guide your placement. oh and i find it a huge help to place a shoebox INSIDE the bag, to give me a work surface on all four sides!
