{Let it Snow} holiday gift tags

 Thank you so much for your positive response to my Holiday Handwarmers I shared yesterday. I have created a tutorial for you HERE that I hope will answer the questions you asked. They are super fun to make and in no time at all, you will have whipped up a whole bunch!  I wanted to share with you how I have spent my "crafternoon"! Ha Ha! 

 Each year as I package up my homemade holiday goodies, I attach a tag to the bag of cookies and these are this year's design! They were so fast and easy and I just LOVE how they came together! Don't you? I made them assembly line style, which is always best when mass producing.

I first diecut the Kraft cardstock bases using a PTI tag die that I use all the time. If you haven't invested in a few tag die cuts, I highly recommend it. After they were all cut, I stamped the 3 sizes of snowflakes from the "Two Feet Deep" stamp set from PTI. The sentiment is also from that set and I just LOVE it.
Once that was done, I wrapped the "evergreen" pipe cleaners around a bottle of liquid glue to achieve the perfect round wreath. I cut the ends with wire cutters. I was able to get two "wreaths" from one stem. I picked them up at Hobby Lobby this year and they are part of their "Make it Christmas" line. The "Let It Snow" sentiment was stamped using white ink onto Pure Poppy cardstock. I hot glued the jingle bell, which I bought at Dollar Tree this year, to the top of the wreath. After all of the pieces were ready, it was ready to assemble and it was all attached with hot glue. The finishing touch was a piece of red baker's twine for a festive touch, especially for baked goods. Thanks for fluttering by and I hope you will join me again for some more handmade holiday projects!

So Cute. Definitely need to make a HL run for those pipe cleaners. Thank you so much for sharing this idea. I love it. I don't have the stamp set but I'll figure something out. :)
