More Tags!

I know, you thought that you'd escaped any further Christmas themed items, but then I found these two spare tags. I had some left over reindeer from my ATCs that I made with Clearly Besotted's Let's Prance and they fitted perfectly on some small tags that I purchased from eBay a while ago. I applied some copper glitzcraft sparkle paste through a star stencil onto the tags and once dry added the reindeer on 1mm deep foam tape and doodled a border.
The larger tag was another pre-bought tag and this time I stenciled white sparkle paste through a falling snow stencil. I stamped the bunnies (which I think are from a now discontinued Apple Blossom set) in black momento ink and coloured it in using my trusty copics. I aimed to make their colours roughly the same as Willow and Parsley as I used these tags on the presents that were from them (the poo presents for hubby (which caused much hilarity) and presents to my parents for helping out with them). Again, I attached them with 1mm foam tape and drew in a border. I also added some nuvo glitter accents to ground them. Simples!
I was so focused on adding the right size and colour tag to the right parcel eg my brother in laws favourite colour is green so I used the snowmen with green scarves on for his presents, that I forgot to write on lots of the tags. Doh! Fortunately, they were all for family I was spending Christmas with and I was able to work out from the size, shape and of course choice of tag, who the recipient was.
I promise that's the last of my Christmas makes, but I may need to start on next years soon! I happened to be near my favourite craft shop today (unaccompanied) and they had pretty much all their Christmas items on sale, along with a quite a few other things. I was very restrained as after large vet bills, money is very tight, but I did pick up a few bargains. I'll show them to you later as I've left them hidden in the car boot so that Hubby doesn't know about them!
