Lindsay's Stamp Stuff - Terrific Tags

This week Lindsay challenged her DT to make some Christmas tags. Tags are the perfect way to use up the little bits and pieces you have left over after your projects. I whipped up some tags in 2 different designs using Lindsay's free shipping tag SVG file as the base.

This first tag design used up some of the pieces I had left after creating the altered treat jars this past week end. I had cut out several of these snowflakes and covered them with Glimmer Mist with the intent to use them on my jars. I just couldn't fit them in the design so I decided to use them on the tags instead of wasting them. The green sheet music was left over from this project. I just love using up all this stuff instead of having to store it some where or wasting it.

I had the strip of polka dot paper and the red punched CS left over from a previous project. Although I did not have the holly precut, I did use scraps of paper to piece it together.

Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure to visit the rest of the DT to see either terrific tag projects and Lindsay will have a freebie for you on her blog.
