Getting Ready for Local Craft Shows - Tag It and Bag It!

This week’s assignment for the DT #1 from Paper Hoarders was to create a tag.  Due to the busy schedules of the PH members, it was decided to just post if you had a project; Mama LoveBug has tags, bags, brooches, other surprises, and cards ready for several local craft shows, one coming up Saturday, November 19, at Montpelier School (Ohio) on Brown Road from 10-4.

Here is my contribution to Tagging.

First I used my Cricut and Lacey Label cart for the base tag of red Core’dinations cardstock.  I then covered it with peppermint-striped paper and after embossing a piece of “left over from last Christmas paper”, I adhered that on top of peppermint stripes.  I also used my paper ripper on the top of the Christmas tree paper to give it a scalloped edge.  Then I adhered the other lacey label fancy frame on top of that.  I know I could have just cut out the basic tag using the peppermint paper but I like a tag with substance so I went the extra step to give it a little more character and girth.

Next I fussy-cutted (is that even a word??) two GFS characters, Ian and Anya, as my Christmas pair.  I colored them with watercolor pencils and glittzed them up with glitter pens.  I cut out the sentiments (again from some left over scraps), added some bling here and there, punched a hole towards the top, and threaded some red ribbon through it for an attachment to a package or a Christmas tree.

Thanks for stopping by; leave me a comment if you’d like, and have a super crafting day.  Cyberhugs!   Mama LoveBug………
