Stamp Simply... tag it pretty!

Hi all and happy Friday! It's time for another Stamp Simply challenge! Last week, the team showed you some fun ways to wrap and package gifts. Today, it's all about decking out your packages with a pretty gift tag! Create something you can just hang on a gift, a bag handle or box -- just a little bit of handmade loveliness that tells the recipient they are special to you!

My creation couldn't be easier! Let's take a peek!

I started with a Crafty Secrets Christmas Cotton Square using this fun Santa! (I got my cotton scraps from Craft Secrets -- but I know Sharon has them in her store too!)I added some fun silver stitching by literally letting my sewing machine "drive!" I wanted to create squiggly and uneven lines to add a dash of whimsy! The rest is matting - I used some Eskimo Kisses and some Bo Bunny decorative paper. I used the Stampin' Up tag corner punch and then added a tab at the top using another Stampin' Up punch. The button is one of my all time favorite buttons - it's one of the American Crafts Glitter Buttons that I wove through some red and white gingham ribbon. In my tab at the top, I did punch a small hole - when the time comes to attach this to a package, I'll grab some of that fun metallic cording and tie it around a bow or a bag handle! Easy as pie!

I can't wait to see what tag-a-licious creations the rest of the Stamp Simply team created! Be sure to stop by and see for yourself! :-)
