Snippet Gift Tags

I'm in the throes of wrapping Christmas presents - yes, I know it's early but we're visiting our families in a couple of weeks so I need to be organised.  I made these gift tags for my mother's presents using snippets left over from my Christmas cards.

I folded snippets of white pearlescent card to 2.5" squares and added a strip of gold glitter paper down the centre of the front.  The small white squares were die cut and embossed before being attached to the centre of the tags with foam tape.  I die cut and embossed the poinsettia leaves from red embossed card and the small flowers from gold glitter paper and layered these in the centre of the embossed square.  To finish I attached double sided tape to the rear of the tags to attached them to my parcels.


To make these tags I used:
     Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Lacy Squares', All Occasion Dies 'Small Poinsettia' and Memory Box 'Mini Holly Leaves' dies
     Kars tan embossing mat
     Snippets of white ice gold pearlescent card, red embossed card and X-cut gold adhesive glitter sheet

I am entering the following challenges:
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies - November Challenge     
     Tales from the Craft Room - Tags and Trimmings (I've obviously chosen the tags option)
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 365
