Now let's get to the new stuff:)  You can never have too many tags, so I'm happy that this month there's a new set of tags called Gift Tags 3.  This set includes one small tag (unstitched) and a slightly larger stitched tag.  And you know what?  The stitched tag matches the large tag from Gift Tags 2.  Yes, it's the little things that make me smile:)  So for my first card today, I've got a little tag-on-tag action with this little rustic card...


I stamped the large tag (from Gift Tags 2) with some pine boughs and berries from the Holly Jolly set to create a frame for the little stitched tag (from the new Gift Tags 3).  Isn't that little tag so sweet?


Here's another quick idea for these little tags in the Gift Tags 3 die set.  Cut plain white card stock tags and then cut them again with the smallest of the Snowflakes dies.   Then  die cut another set of tags with patterned paper or glitter paper.   Glue the two layers together and you have a set of totally custom tags.  I think this year instead of writing names on the tags, I'm going to use these tags and assign everyone a patterned paper:)  


Thanks for hopping with the Paper Smooches today!  The next stop on the hop is the fun and talented Kalyn Kepner!  Enjoy!

aloha,
jj
