BBTB2 - Gift Tags

Welcome to another AWESOME challenge for BBTB2!!!  This week it's all about the TAGS!!!  How much more fun can presents get? Well, just add that special tag and you will see!  I am so excited about the tags that I made for this week's challenge.  I was able to put my Art Philosophy cart to GREAT use for these tags!  I love the tag feature on this card, it allows for so much creativity with how you put your papers together and create an amazing tag!

The back of my tags were super simple to just cut and adhere to the front.  I used some cream cardstock from Hobby Lobby, used my Hero Arts Christmas stamp set for the "merry christmas" and a Fiskars stamp set for the "to: from:"  CAS!!!

I cut each of the tags out at 3". The front of the tag I made by cutting the tag out of pattern paper and cream cardstock, adhered those together. I cut just a small piece of pattern paper to cover the "cut outs", then adhered the back of the tag to cover that up. Honestly the hardest part of these tags was choosing which paper I wanted to use :) I did ink around the edges of each of them and ran some hemp cord through the top.
SO FUN!!! I can't wait to attach these to my presents this year!!!



I hope that you will join us this week for our Tag, You're It! Challenge at BBTB2! I can't wait to see what you come up with!  Thanks for checkin' in!
