Twelve Tags of Christmas SU Style !

Hello ! I've been creating some tags for Christmas - I have always planned to do the twelve tags of Christmas every year and never achieved it but this year is different - I am setting goals and getting there and these tags will be done !!! So, here are the first three all based on a well vintaged vanilla card tag ( these are proper parcel tags purchased from an old fashioned stationers and they come in packs of 50 !). I have used old olive and summer starfruit to lift the colour scheme and added cherry cobbler and raspberry ripple with the odd pop of primrose petals ! The edges were sponged with crumb cake ! 

More to come very soon : the idea is to use these as a banner ( all strung together ) or as tree decorations ! They can also be use to embellish a special gift ! The mini envelope was made by trial and error using the punchboard - you don't need to be a maths genius - get someone who is to work the measurements out for you !! LOL ! You need to scale down from the smallest measurement on the board - mine was made from a piece of DSP 3 1/2inches square and scored at 1 1/2 inches - simple !
Happy Christmas crafting !
