Negative Cut Tag

 Our family has always kept gift giving to a minimum for Christmas.   This year I am making most of the gifts again and one of the things I am making for the women is hot pads.  I found a really cute apple shaped one which I made for my sister.  Her husband is one of the major apple orchardists in their area of the state. How about an apple theme tag to go with it?
Pretty easy.  Cut out the apple with a Spellbinder die from a piece of red cardstock.  Backed it with Christmas designer paper, then backed both with green cardstock.  I punched a hole and added ribbon.
The negative cut idea came from some of the darling tags at In My Creative Opinion, especially Michelle's.
