I made this tag following the sketch on 2S4Y. It is a tag shape and instead of making it into a tag shaped card, I decided to actually make it a tag. I also used the photo inspiration from Papercraft Star. The photo is of a Christmas tree, which is decorated with tags and snowflakes. I used the colors from it to inspire the traditional colors on the tag. Finally, I used BBTB2's challenge, which is to use the wreath cut from Joys of the Season. I love this wreath and knew it would work perfectly on this tag.
The tag was cut from Joys of the Season at 5 1/2" and the wreath is cut at 2 1/2." I inked the edges of the tag for some dimension. I used some ribbon that I had in my stash and wrapped it around the tag. The wreath was cut twice and the layers were also cut twice. I pop-dotted the top layer, in the darker green cardstock. I then used some gold Stickles to highlight the leaves. I used some flat-backed gems as berries and stamped "Merry Christmas" on the bottom. I used a glittery red ribbon for the top of the tag.
I really like how this one turned out and I think it looks like a very traditional Christmas tag. Now I just have to figure out who I am going to be giving it to. :)
