♥ Simon Says... Tag You're It! ♥

This week's FUN challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is to make a tag! You can incorporate a tag onto a card or make a tag that can be attached to a special present for Christmas, Hanukkah or even a Birthday!

I made some Christmas tags that I can easily attach to a present and you can make a little pocket in the back to hold a gift card or money. With the awesome JustRite Spellbinders Nested Frame Die they are so easy to make! I love this die set. You can do so many things with it! After running the larger rectangle die through my Cuttlebug, I stamped Tim Holtz's Santa Letter ATC Rubber Stamp onto the tag. You can then run the next size die through your Cuttlebug, attach it to the back, only gluing the bottom and two sides, leaving the top open to make a pocket. There you have a wonderful handmade Christmas Tag/Gift Card Holder! You can even add a longer piece of ribbon to it, so it can be hung from the Christmas tree!

Here is a closeup of all the tags.

Melissa, these are dazzling tags! I was inspired to use up some cardboard that comes in my husband's laundered shirts for tags in round and whatever shapes. Thank you so much for sharing!
