Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

November's PTI Blog Hop Challenge is to "design a holiday tag or two using all of your favorite goodies and share it with all of us!"
Tags are so much fun to create and a great way to use up little scraps of paper.  I made a dozen, then bundled them up in a clear bag tied with a bow - a great little gift for anyone with a Birthday in November or December. 
 

 I cut out all of my tag bases on my Cricut using Tag Set 1 from Perfect Presentation.  Gotta love being able to cut more than one at a time and change the size - for these I made the tags 2" wide.  All the tags have the same basic layout, but each has different PP and images/sentiments from Christmas Button Bits.  Some have felt, others just solid strips of paper and the gingerbread men tags have ric rac.  I used my Cricut to create the ric rac with a svg freebie from Pigtails Paper Trails - I reduced the size to fit the width of my tags.



Have a wonderful Thanksgiving to those in the US and may this be just a little inspiration to get everyone crafting for the holidays.
Smiles,
Julie
