My Craft Spot Challenge - Christmas Tags

(((If you're looking for my Day 1 Growing in Unity Post - click HERE or just scroll down to the last post.)))

Good Monday morning! It's time for a new challenge at My Craft Spot - and this week's theme is Wrap it Up! So...I decided to make some pretty tags to put on Christmas gifts for my kids this year. Here they are:
I started off by cutting the tags using my Silhouette Cameo, then smearing white paint all around the edges.  
While the paint dried, I cut all the layers of the Tiny Doily Metal Dies. I actually used black and red  chalkboard paper for two of the layers, then just white paper around. 
I heat embossed the tiny tree from Stampin' Around Christmas in white on the black chalkboard paper to add to the chalkboard look, then stamped the no peeking on the round piece using black ink. I put foam adhesive between the lace doily, and the front round part, then attached them all with foam adhesive to the tags. 
Next, I stamped the to and from, also using Stampin' Around Christmas, then added the sentiment on the bottom with red ink using the Mistletoe Stamp set, and added a couple of green pearls next to it.  
I added some jute twine in bittersweet (available HERE), and some olive crinkle ribbon (available HERE) to the top of the tags, and then as a final finishing touch, I added some Diamond Glaze to the bottom, and sprinkled them heavily with Martha Stewart Coarse glitter - so it looked like they were dipped in snow! 
I'm so glad you stopped by today! Hope you'll join us this week at My Craft Spot, and get a head start with some of your gift packaging! Have a wonderful day!

I am also adding this to the Word Art Wednesday's challenge this week - Giving/Anything Goes.
