Too Cute to Toss Tags

It's hard enough receiving beautiful stamped cards from your friends... ya just never want to toss them out... as most are suitable for framing right? Well can you imagine getting some of these Christmas tags.... wouldn't dare toss them either.... that's why I'm a firm believer in RECYCLING...  at least the beautiful art work we make and get!

Kay Kalthoff had a darling idea to host a Christmas Tag Swap.... she got so many great submissions that she had a hard time picking a winner... no wonder! Take a look at these.... and what she had to say about each...

This is the tag Terri Hall created for our swap. Some of the tags had the words at the top and some had the words at the bottom and both looked great! I just love the way Terri ruffled the ribbon.

Isn't this a cute tag? Kari Cannon made these mini tags/ornaments with with the Stocking Builder Punch. To hold them into the greeting, just use Stampin' Dimensionals . . . the little hooks loop around the dimensionals perfectly!

Laura Erickson created a pair of Holiday tags for us. Her tree has so much pop! I haven't a clue how to do it, but I've seen this technique out there. Leave it to Laura to make one of her tags 3-D!!

This tag was created by one of our Stampin' Guests! Mary Bellis made this beautiful creation with punches and dies. Love the big satin bow, too!

Cindy Standal also made two tags for us . . . I love the Snow Much Fun image in the Snowflake Die . . . that's soooo cute. She decorated the tree tag with rhinestones that were colored with Sharpies. Very sparkling!

Dawn Michels made a wreath tag with her Ornament Punch! I love the texture and sponging. What a great idea!

Debby Filiowich glued strips of Letters to Santa DSP and skinny strips of Silver Glimmer paper together and then used a Big Shot to cut out her tag. Another great idea!!

Isn't this snowman just the CUTEST? Mary Dagostino created this one . . . way to cute to toss!! She used a variety of punches, and the to from box is made out of the rectangular designer frame embossing folder. She said she made the nose by punching a row of scallops with the scallop border punch and then cutting each scallop to a point. Very clever!

Hope you're inspired now!
