Lots of snippets

I've spent several enjoyable hours this afternoon making gift tags out of snippets of white card, papers and ribbon - a total of 65 tags!

To make the tags I glued various snippets of paper onto snippets of white card.  I cut and embossed as many tags as I could with the largest die, then moved on to the middle size and finally made some with the small die.  I then added snippets of ribbon to the tags - most of them don't have ribbon yet as I've run out of small snippets and don't want to cut into my longer lengths or ribbon at the moment.

To make these tags I used:
     Creative Expressions 'Pierced Tags' dies
     Kars tan embossing mat
     Snippets of white card, various patterned papers and ribbon

I am entering the following challenges:
     Dies R Us - Anything Goes  
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 362

Now that's a great use of snippets for sure! Brilliant idea and I'll add this to my list! Your die is very nice - looks like there's an eyelet at the hole but I'm assuming it's embossed that way, looks great! Enjoy your weekend!
