CWC Weekly Challenge and Day 14 of 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Fun

Hello and welcome to the Wednesday weekly challenge over at Cooking with Cricut.  Today we are focusing on simple cards, tags and other holiday goodies.  I hope you will join us in the challenge!

I had a Holiday party to go to last weekend and wanted to make a little hostess gift.  I had about an hour.  I decided to make a little gift bag with some tags and candy in it.  The tags would be for her to use later on her own Christmas gifts :)  Hopefully making things easier on her.

Here they are:

 I made 10 tags by cutting the tags in red paper (I actually used some 6X6 scraps I had and used my Creative Memories tag cutter but could have just as easily used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More or even Jolly Holidays to cut the tags.  I then cut 10 trees (also using scrap paper but green this time).  I used a to and from stamp on one side of the tag, then added the tree on the other.  I then added some stars I had from Micheals Recollections brand and some "lights" using my iRock gem setter and some gems, I, however, could have just as easily added some adhesive rhinestones.  Lastly I used my snow writer marker to add some snow at the bottom (because I love that thing, LOL).  I added ribbon to each one and I was all set!  I tied them all together and then cut a bag from Art Philosophy using fit to page and the size of the bag was perfect.  I threw some dark chocolate Hershey kisses in the bottom, threw in the tags and was all set with my cute but thoughtful hostess gift :)

Thanks for stopping by today, make sure you go back to Cooking with Cricut and visit all of the designers today!

Have a craft day.

How nice of you to gift the tags for someone else to use. Like the embellishing on the trees.
