It's Monday and over at BBTB2 this week our lovely Laura asked us to create a Holiday Gift Tag for this week's challenge.
I wanted a pocket tag so that the recipient of my gift will get and extra little gift of some candy canes and found the perfect pocket tag on an oldie but goodie cartridge Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. I can't give you dimensionsas I just stretched my tag in CCR so that I knew it would fit 3 candy canes and cut it  using Kraft cardstock. The Snowflake and 25 are 2 separate cuts from Teresa Collins December 25th cartridge. I wrapped my tag with baker's twine before pop dotting the 25 and snowflake on top for a bit of dimension and added some Shimmer dome dots (from the Papermania range) to the points of the snowflake. Finally I added some more baker's twine to the top of my tag and of course 3 delicious candy canes!
Go take a peek over at BBTB2 and see the gorgeous tags that my DT sister's have created and show us your Holiday tags using your Cricut , we love seeing your creations!
Have a great week everyone!

Hi Julie, I really love this, don't know why I haven't seen it before!

Thanks for the lovely comment on my card. Just noticed you are in Barry, so you have had all the rain we have been having too. At least there is sun today.
