I decided to share with you a simple tag I created for a Cricut Circle swap (right before they snipped off my antennae) so if you are a Circlet friend I will apologize that this is not new to you. I am getting excited that the time to finally use my tags from that swap is here! Now only if I can bear to part with them - some I just want to keep and look at!
I started with a kraft paper base and then because these were made for a swap I didn't want to mess with adhesive or even bust out my trusty Xyron, so I decided to use vinyl - adhesive included and my problem was solved! The tag shape is from Winter Frolic and cut out at 5 inches. The poinsettas are from the Christmas solutions cart and that cut is 2.30 inches. I believe I did not cut out the middle layer, choosing instead to replace it with some heat set gems which always seems like a good idea until I am in the middle of having to put a million of them on. Apparently I wasn't a big enough glutton for punishment because I also added metal heat set studs to the ends of the scrolls too. I am thinking I must have more patience for Christmas in the summer than in December!
I hope you are inspired to share your holiday projects with us - they don't even have to be new! I think it would be nice to have a spot to get those last minute ideas! I sure as heck will need them! Happy crafting and happy holidays!
