Flaky Tags!

I know it's a bit early for Christmas things but you have to start sometime. Anyone done with their Chritmas shopping?? I would answer no to that unless I was asked that question on the 22nd or 23rd of December!!! LOL

This is a fun little tag but I'm not sure I would make too many of them to put on gifts. I mean, they're just going to toss them anyway. Maybe if the top tag was laminated then you could just use some Staz-on remover and wipe the names off and use it again and again and again until someone actually throws it away!!! LOL

I did stamp the mitten on the white piece and color it. Then I stamped another mitten and cut it out after I colored it. I set it on top of the first mitten with a dimensional. I added a little hemp and a couple of tiny clothes pins. I used the snowflake stamp from the Flaky Friends set for the background of the white piece. I taped the layers together and punched a hole in the tag and it's now ready to use (if I dare!!!). LOL

Helen left a comment on this post asking about the tag. The tag was made by hand, no punches or die cuts. If you're going to make a bunch of these, to make it go faster, just make one small one and one large one and trace them. When I made mine I used copier paper to make my rectangle. Then I folded it in half and clipped the corners on one end. Open it up and you have symmetrical corners. For the layer tag I just set the other one on top and clipped one edge (on copier paper again) and then folded it in half to get both sides symmetrical. Now you have a pattern to crank out TONS of these!!!

Thank you for stopping by,

Very cute tag! But I'm like you- I'd be afraid it would just get thrown away!

I love it! If I wasn't so afraid of tags ending up in the trash with the paper, I'd do a bunch of these. Absolutely adorable, Wanda!
