Christmas Tags

Happy Friday!  Time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week the challenge is to make Christmas tags.  Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and the winner will receive 7 images of their choice.  Now, I have to admit that I rarely ever make tags.  I don't know why as they really are super cute.  I guess it's just because I don't really know how to attach them to a present (shhh . . . don't tell anyone!)  Anyway, I made two different tags using the same image and many of the same elements.
 Here's the stripey one by itself.  On both, I used sparkly brads to take the place of the ornaments.
 Here's a close up, so you can see the sparkle on the brads and if you look closely, the sparkly on the snowflake--I used glimmer mist  to give it just a subtle shine.
 And here is the second tag.  Simple, but really cute, I think.
Now, it's your turn.  I can't wait to see what adorable tags you come up with.  Head on over to the CSAYL blog for all the details and to see the projects from the rest of the DT.

Christmas @ Sweet Stamping--kraft at Christmas (kraft colored paper on the striped tag)
Treasured Times #21--anything goes
Inkspirational Challenge #62--use markers or pencils (I used markers to color my images)

The Paper Shelter #168--make it digital (my images are digis and the paper on the striped tag is digital as well.  I did use a stamp for the sentiment, hope that is ok)
