Tag..You're It!!

It seems that there has been a breakdown on the Christmas card production line...just 3 made so far and it will soon be December...oh deary me :(
The only thing I'm producing in abundance is nose is running like a tap! Eeeeeeuuuwwww way too much information Elaine!

It's certainly getting darker much earlier, which means trying to take a decent photograph is harder than usual, my photography skills are non-existent at the best of times.
And so all the following photographs are pretty'll just have to use your imagination about how they really look :)
(You can click on the photos to enlarge them)

And as you can see, I've been making a few tags. Very quick and easy tags, which is perfect when you need to make a lot of them. These are so easy to put together that (once all the die cutting is done) you can get the children involved too.

One of my crafty buddies had seen the tags, along with some birthday ones, and asked if I could send her some of the die cut tag shapes, which made me think that maybe other crafters would like the tag shapes?

I've put together a little starter bundle.
Everything as shown above, in more detail below.

There are 5 different shapes of tags, and I have included 3 of each tag (15 tags in total)
Plus the bottom shape is a gift card holder x 3.

Waxed cord in red and brown, Divine twine in red/white and brown/white, and button twice.
Some lace and some gingham ribbon.

Various sizes of felt snowflakes in kraft and vintage white.
Various sizes of felt flowers in kraft and poppy.
And the blurry fuzzy die cut poinstettias..I think there are 8 of each size.

Wooden buttons, resin flowers, pearl centres, an assortment of gold and silver jingle bells, and a pearl/diamante thingymybob.

If you fancy the tag package just leave a comment.

  24. I do hope you start to feel very much better - not nice at all - R was struck down (kept finding him in bed which is unheard of) for around a month & 3 sets of antibiotics later finally got back on his feet. He insisted on walking to the hospital despite threatening to faint - anyhow I took that in my stride but decided I'd appreciate a little warning if he was going to flatten less than 5ft me with his 6ft 4!
    A lovely thoughtful idea Elaine.
    Take care of yourself.
