Gift Tags for CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop

Hello and welcome back for another installment of the Close To My Heart Featured Products Blog Hop, where this time we are bringing you lots of fun gift tags ideas.  If you came here from Donna's blog you are in the right place but as always, hops are circular things so you are welcome to jump in anywhere along the way and make the rounds.  I have included a complete list of this week's participants in case you get lost along the way.  Let's get started!

I've been dying to make this first tag ever since I got my Oh! Deer paper kit.  I cut this tag at 4" height using my Cricut and the retired Art Philosophy cartridge.  I used the Artistry cartridge to cut this deer at 2.75" using Desert Sand for the head and Cocoa for the base, which are both colors used in the Oh! Deer kit, and I sponged the edges of the deer head in Desert Sand.  I didn't have any red glitter paper for the sparkly red nose so I went with a hole punching tool and a bit of red shimmer trim but I imagine you could also make do with red enamel gem for a more 3-D effect.  To finish this tag, I cut a 3/4" strip of Sea Glass cardstock, stamped it in Cocoa ink with the to/from found in the Perfect Presents stamp set, and I used a bit of the white and gold twine for the loop on the tag.  So easy but so much fun!

Now it's time to send you off to see what Lauren has for you.  One quick note, we will be taking a break for the month of December to enjoy the holidays with our families but we will be back on Wednesday, 1/4/17, to bring you our projects with the January Stamp of the Month, which is really lovely so you won't want to miss it.

Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays!  ~~  Annette
