Tag your it...Christmas tags


Wow its Friday!  The countdown until Thanksgiving is going on in my house.  My menu is written, free range turkey order is place (getting fresh eggs and sausage too), all I need to do is get a few items at the grocery store and I'm all set to start cooking.  The day before I will probably make a pumpkin cheesecake and fudge, along with potato salad and sage sausage stuffing, then chop & prepare all the veggies and side dishes that I will cook on Thanksgiving.  Do you all cook on the same day, or spread it out?
Anyhow on to my post lol, so Julie challenged us to make some tags for the Flourishes Friday Focus.  I like to use tags to stick on gift bags, wine bottles, or packages of desserts, it just makes the packaging look polished and well thought out, not to mention it just classes it up a bit.
I started out with a 2 1/2 inch by 4 inch piece of cardstock, and I stamped the music background in a green ink and put a strip of designer paper towards the botoom.  Then I machine stitched around the border, distressed it a bit by sponging the edges, and then stamped the sentiment "merry Christmas" that is from the Santa set.  I layered this onto red cardstock, adhered it down, punched a hole at the top, and ran ribbon through the hole to finish off the tags.  My little basket is starting to get full, this makes me very excited.  I love getting things finished early!  Head on over to the Flourishes Newsletter for Julie's tutorial.  Don't forget to pay a visit to the rest of the designers to see what kind of fun tags they have created for you!
