So glad I made the determination and commitment to make Christmas tags.  I am really enjoying it.  Spurred on by the challenge at the Kraft Journal, which is Anything Tags, I made several more.
Here are two I made using my new tree dies by Spellbinder.

 The tag on the left is a Large Manilla Shipping Tag on which I added a piece of Vintage Sheet Music (Mackie Robertson's card used sheet music - loved it) I used a bit of distress ink on the top of the tag and torn sheet.  I love this Christmas tree.  After cutting it out, I sponged a bit of ink on the edges.  The garland is die cut from the Spellbinders Happy Birthday Garland.  Worked great for the tree, don't you think?  The ornaments are brads. The tags come with strings but I added green Baker's Twine. "Gift for you" is a GKD stamp.
The tag on the right is a Grungy Prim Shipping Tag.  With the stain already on the tag and the color of the tag itself, I decided to stay with earth tones.  The trees are cut from Lunch Bag Kraft and Light Kraft cardstocks.  I made a new re-inforcer with dark brown cardstock and added a piece of Earthy Hemp Cord.   The same GKD stamp was used at the top but this time I left off the word "you" and cut out "you" with a MFT die.  I really love how both tags turned out.
Love tags? Check out the challenge at the Kraft Journal.
