BSS MONDAY IDEA - CHRISTMAS TAGS

WELCOME TO MONDAY MORNING
AND THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF MONDAY IDEA.

Today's idea is to make some Christmas tags. Wow, can you believe that Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is only 17 days away......and Christmas will follow so quickly you won't even believe it!
So today, I thought we would make a Christmas Tag. The fun thing about tags is you can put some great embellishments on them because they don't have to be put on in an envelope to be mailed. Even if you're mailing your packages, a beautiful tag can be put on them!


My tag recipe:

Stamp - Inkadinkado (60-00682)
Designer paper - My Mind's Eye "The Merry Days of Christmas"
Card stock - Red and Powder Blue
Sponged distress ink around edge
Punched border - Martha Stewart
Ribbon and bells from my stash
Heart Stick Pin - BSS
Pine Cone sticker - Jolee Boutique Stickers
Fir Branch - Pulled from a silk flower stalk
I matted the original tag with red card stock, plenty of room on the back
to write a message or to/from greeting.

OK, I'm off to make more tags.........it's fun and they will become really handy in a few weeks! Thanks for stopping by today.

Sue, this is just gorgeous. You would not even have to give a gift, just the tag would do. Someone could put that tag in a frame and use it as a brautiful Holiday picture. I've taken away some great ideas from this tag. Thank you for that. Enjoy your day

Wow, what a super gorgeous tag. I agree with Donna, you do not need a gift with it, it can be treasured on it's own!!
