Christmas tags

I'm starting to pack my things up for Christmas, wrapping paper and gift bags.  I realized that when I open the bag next year I will not have any gift tags (I only open the bag when I have to start wrapping), so I made up a few to get me started.

I used Plantin Schoolbook for the tag and cut it at 4.5 inches.  I cut it once in a color and once in white, I then cut the white with my scissors to make it look like snow.  I ran the white through the cuttlebug using the swiss dot embossing folder, then inked the edges.  I used snow friends for the snowman, he is the last snowman on the cart, and is cut at 2.5 inches, I did not cut use the eyes, mouth, nose or buttons, I just drew them on with my copics.

I only used scraps when making these, it certainly would have gone faster using full sheets and cutting more than one at a time, but I keep on getting more scraps, it feels great to use them.
