Well, if there is anyone else that has procrastinated until the last minute (like me!) - I have a really easy idea to share with you to whip out some quick and adorable gift tags! I made 27 of them, in probably under an hour! Pretty easy! Here they are:
I have been loving kraft paper - and blue and white together for Christmas colors!
So, here is what I started with - this tag off of Winter Woodland, cut at 2.96 inches on my Gypsy (so approximately 3 inches if you are just using your Cricut).
Then I pulled out my Unity Stamps Kit of the Month from November, and used the snowflake background and some white ink to stamp a background.
Here is what it looks like now:
Then I used my Very Merry Tags Cartridge to cut out a bunch of little snowflakes - used my Gypsy to hide the hole that makes it a tag, and cut them at 1.42 inches (so approximately 1.5 inches).
Each snowflake then got a little visit with my hole punch in the center of them:
Grabbed some Twinery Twine in Marchino Cherry:
Wrapped it around a couple of times, crossing in the center:
Then threaded it through the hole in the snowflake:
And tied a cute little bow, trimming the ends if necessary.
Finally, pulled out my Unity Stamps Blossom Stacker set, and the "to" and "from" stamps.
And stamped them on each tag!
And that's all there is too it! Here is the pile of a bunch of the finished ones:
Entering this in several Challenges:

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think...I have been pondering doing a few more tutorials, but not sure if anyone would be interested in them? Videos would be difficult, because we have slower than average internet, so I fear I would take a whole day to upload anything! Anyway - your thoughts are appreciated! Thanks!
