Welcome Day 2 Holly Jolly Hop!

Welcome to Day Two  of the Holly Jolly Hop!

So glad you hopped on over! If you hopped over here from Glora's blog Glora's crafts then you are in the right place! If not stop on over to Stephanie's Blog Always Crafting and start hopping from the start! You don't want to miss any of the super awesome projects and fun blog candy give-a-ways!!

For today's project I made Christmas tags for my Mom to use on her gifts!

These are so fun and easy to make! I used Plantin Schoolbook to cut the tags. I first cut them in cardstock then in pattern paper so they are stronger. This is a great way to use up scraps and try out techniques and fun embellishments!




I used pattern paper on both sides. All the tags were cut at 3 3/4"

Red craft string easily ties to the tag,



then add lots of bling!





I used cut outs, glitter, and buttons.

She loved them!

Thank you for hopping with us today, I hope you enjoyed my project and have been inspired to make your own tags this year or make tags for someone who might not be so paper savvy!!! LOL!

  11. O.K. my dear blogging friend, you have inspired me to make some tags for hubby presents this year. I got them all wrapped last night with pretty bows and ribbons, so I guess the final touch should be homemade tags from Santa. TFS and Merry Christmas to you and your family
