Hi Friends,

This is the first time in awhile I am making something that was just something I wanted to do without a challenge in mind, but then when I started, I realized my friend Janis had a tag challenge and I needed to make a tag for a card exchange.  Then, I really started having fun, I thought why not see how much stuff I can put on here and still have it be fun and not too messy looking.

So here is what I came up with. It is a tag but I layered it so it is thick, I folded the top piece over and then glued it together (so it opens), Then, I added faux stitching around the top portion, I added three paper flowers on top of the to from tag and some Christmas red stickles. I cut out a little nutcracker ballerina stamp and added a touch of liquid glass to the sparkle and three skittles from my friend Carri
dark and light purple ribbon from my friend Karen. The ink is cranberry from my CTMH store. The twine is trendy twine The little flower is part of the packaging off of Karen's ribbon. I also used the epiphany punch and bubble caps to add a little dimension and more shine. The to from stamp is from Michael's $1.00 bin. The designer cardstock is nutcracker paper from Graphics 45.  I also used a Sizzix large die  for the shape.


 Love this tag


See how it opens.
