Slide Back Saturday - Merry Tags - Stampin Up

Whilst we are busy concentrating on making cards and buying Christmas presents we often forget that when giving a gift the first thing you look at is the little gift tag.

A simple wrapped present can look all the more special with a pretty handmade gift tag.

I've chosen the 'Merry Tags' framelits dies, cutting two shapes to make each tag. One is a plain bauble shape the other has a pretty cut out design so when layered in different colour cardstock it allows the underneath to peak through. 
The colours chosen here are 'Whisper White' and 'Fresh Fig', what a gorgeous, ,rich colour it is and a break from the traditional reds and greens.

Silver 1/8 inch ribbon is the perfect width to slip through the tag top. 

To package these in sets of 10 i have taken the 'Bigz Top Note' die, scored it in half so it sits along the top of a clear cello bag. A staple either side ensures the top stays closed and tags won't slip out of the bag. 
The wording 'May your Christmas be wrapped in love' i thought suited perfectly and it comes from the 'Wrapped in warmth' stamp set. 

I think these would be lovely to sell at craft fairs or to gift away to friends and family for their own use...and of course, don't forget to keep some for yourself when wrapping Christmas presents.
