Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge


Papertrey Ink is having a blog hop! The challenge is to make a set of five Christmas tags :
Before you know it, all of the gift giving that goes hand-in-hand with the upcoming holidays will be here.  This month we thought we would challenge you to get a head start and create a quick set of five gift tags.  They can be as simple or as complex as you wish, but be sure to make at least five! 
Here are mine, I made them using PTI card stock that I cut with my half and half die collection.

I ran them through my Cuttlebug with a striped embossing folder (sorry, can't recall the name of it) and stamped the top detail in Pure Poppy using the coordinating  Half and Half stamp.


Across the bottom I added some polka dot washi tape and a little row of jewels. I've had these Heidi Swapp jewel strips for eight years and they were still sticky. Color me impressed!


For the sentiment, I die cut and stamped the flourish from Boutique Borders: Thanks Mini Stamp set and then added the phrases from that set and from the Winter Hills set.
To finish things off, I added a shabby fabric flower and polka dot ribbon which I affixed with my tiny attacher. 
These will sure come in handy in the months to come. 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Warmly,
~~~Nicole
