Christmas tags

Hidey ho! 

So, did you go shopping?  I always hit Target and Best Buy on Black Friday.  Yep, I'm one of those people.  Only 2 stores though.  I'm home by 9:00 am.  The kids never even know I'm gone. 

Did you have a wonderful Thanksgiving?  I'll tell you about ours later.  I have pics to share but my camera isn't cooperating.  I can't tell my story without the pics.  I'm so thankful we were able to spend it with family.  And that I didn't have to cook it.  HA!

I do have some tags to show you though. 

A Word for You and Christmas classics sets.   Riding hood red, crumb cake, whisper white and old olive cardstock.  Black Stazon and whisper white inks.  Big shot, top note die, tombow multi glue (green bottle), silver glass glitter (holiday mini), and dimensionals.

Aren't these cute?  The finished size is 4x4.  I made these to go on the bags for some customers. 

I know they are very plain and simple.  But I like it!  I stamped the tree in old olive ink on old olive cardstock. 

To get the die cut shape you just cut out a Top Note die.  Then turn it 90 degrees, line up the points and cut again.  Gives you a perfect square.  Okay, not a square, but you know what I mean. 

I used a dollop of the Tombow Multi glue and then poured the glass glitter on there and pressed it down a little with my finger.  It gives it some nice dimension.  It almost looks like a big ol' fat snowflake. 

Then I wrote my little thank you on the back. 

Alrighty then, I am pooped out!  I think I'll sleep in tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Blessings, b.

Hi Beth,
Love these tags - I am into making tags lately and now I know how to turn the top note diecut and cut again - thanks for sharing that! These would make cute little card notes and making matching envelopes too...Mary
