Today's idea is to make gift tags for Christmas packages that look like
a Christmas Ornament.

Here are  the three tags I made.

All three tags were made with a 3 3/4 and a 4 1/4 inch circle.
I used my Spellbinder's Grand and Classic circle dies, but you could
just as easily use a punch or trace circles and cut them out.  I also
cut a white circle for the back of each gift tag to finish if off and stamped it
with a To::/From stamp.

I just love this snow girl! Oh, I forgot, I love all snowpeople!!
The stamp is by Northwoods (889296)  I stamped her on white card stock
with Versafine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
Colored with Copics.
Snowflake and pine Branch punched from Glittered paper are Martha Stewart punches
Silver mirror paper cut at 11/4 by 1 3/4 inches and folded in half, then
rounded on the open ends makes the hanger.  Glue this to the very top
to the ornament after adhering the two circles together.
Finished off with blue rhinestones and Stardust Stickles
and pink cord.

Great guy tag.
Stamp - Pickup Truck (1114F8) Rubber Cottage
Fence die - Cheery Lyn Designs (B123)
Pine Branch die - Impression Obsession- DIE021-N
Darice Emobssing Folder - Snowflakes
Layered Poinsettia die - Spellbinder's (S5-005)
Crystal Stockles
Silver cord

Jingle Bell die is Sizzix Alterations Tim Holtz (658765)
cut from gold glittered paper.
Adhered black card stock behind the openings in the bell.
Sizzix Holly die (65703) Holly with berries #5
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Stripes
Sentiment -Hero Arts
Liquid Pearls- white opal
Green organza ribbon, Red Stickles
Background Paper is Basic Gray - Nordic
Snowflake punch - Martha Stewart (green textured card stock)
Deckled edged scissors. 

To give the bell a beveled look, I used the hot glue gun to
glue in.  I bent the bell in a curved shape with my fingers, then
glued it on that way on each side, right where the upper slit begins.

These were fun to make and would make such a pretty presentation on a special gift.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.  Until later.........

How cute are these tags. I am with you on the snow people. Love all of them.You have colored this beautifully. It is my favorite of the three, but all three would look cute hanging from a package.
