tag! you're it!

we've got a fun little twist this fortnight at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥: we're making holiday tags, with a couple of options. you can make a freestanding tag to use on a gift OR you can incorporate a tag into your card design. i chose the first option, though i would not rule out the possibility that my tags might, at some later date, get attached to a folded card base, in the event i run a little short in december, lol.

patterned paper, florals, pearl flourishes and tiny vellum butterflies: prima marketing; large shipping tags, sheet music and doilies: from my stash; wooden snowflakes of unknown origin; seam binding: paper anthology; jingle bells die: memory box; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, glue dots, nuvo deluxe adhesive

i started with a couple of oversized manilla shipping tags and went just sliiiiiiightly crazy with shabby chic embellishments. the patterned paper is from prima's "christmas in the country" collection, and i've paired it with my two all-time favorite stash items: vintage sheet music and doilies.

most of my florals are from prima's "spring farmhouse" collection, but there are some others mixed in as well. the tiny vellum butterflies are a bit older, and i suppose not very xmassy, lol, but they were exactly the right colors. i have had the wooden snowflakes for AGES. the main reason being that i never felt confident enough about any adhesive for attaching them; but since i've discovered nuvo deluxe, luckily that is no longer a problem!

hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ to see stephanie's beautiful creation and start thinking what YOU will make, because TAG! you're it!
