Christmas Tag Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Christmas Tag Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Tanner's blog. If not, please start there and move on throughout the hop :) Today we are highlighting different ideas for tags you can use for your Christmas gifts. We're also using the Christmas, Christmas stamp set, which is sold out BUT if you leave a comment on Sherri's blog at the end of the hop, you will be entered to win this fantastic set! She has 1 extra stamp set and she so generously giving it away!! I hope you enjoy the hop and have a Very Merry Christmas!!

The tag that I created today was inspired by a card that Gale, the Happy Stamper made a couple of weeks ago. I decided to make a set of those cards for my mom to use as her Christmas cards for this year. I don't drink a ton of pop so I asked my 4th grade students if they could start collecting their pop tabs at home. Well, one student brought in an entire gallon baggie, plus 2 sandwich baggies FULL of tabs, so I needed to find a use for them and came up with this idea. This tag is a basic full size tag. I covered it in red card stock, then cut a piece of white card stock that measures 1 1/2 x 6 1/4 inches. I tore the sides, added the tab and black ribbon to created the "belt," cut Happy Holidays using the Christmas Cards seasonal cartridge, and stamped the To and From. I then added fibers and ribbon on the top of the tag.
I hope you enjoy my tag and the other beautiful tags the team has to share. You're next stop is Vicky.
Have a great day!!!
