Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Christmas Tag

After buying the PTI Tag Sale 1 I am now completely obsessed with making tags! Although birthday tag ideas come flowing out, I have been struggling with Christmas Tags. I was searching for ideas, something that would spark an idea and came across this idea using recycled christmas wrapping paper.  Here is what I did to make it my own.
I used the Pure Poppy distressed dot pattern paper along with some Fine Linen paper for the middle layer.  The strips were cut into 1/2 by 3 inch strips.  I used the Martha Stewart Glue pen to glue the ends together, then glue dots to glue the strips onto a 1 1/2 inch circle.  Finished the center off with a dark chocolate button complete with button twine. 

My second tag uses the new flower die that goes along with the Signature Series Flower Stamp Set.  While brainstorming ideas I thought that using just two die cuts of the flower I could make it look like a poinsettia.  I really like how it turned out. This tag definitely took a lot less time to make so I plan on making more if I have time before our new addition arrives. :)  I love the look of the red polka dots on the kraft cardstock.  I also did a lot of distressing with the tea dye duo and I love how it turned out!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Hollie
