TAG Blog Hop

Hello everyone! The TAC Angels over at Paperwings are doing a Blog Hop featuring tags. What fun and who doesn't need some Christmas tags this time of year - or tags for wrapping gifts anytime of the year.

Here is my creation, which uses one of the tags that is included in TAC's paper collections.

This is actually a card holder that holds about 3 cards with envelopes for gift giving.

The paper collection is from TAC's Emma line and the cardstock is from one of the Caboodles collections. The sentiment is from Savvy Sayings and stamped in Memento rich cocoa. I added a brown rhinestone to the top center of the tag. A piece of green grosgrain ribbon is tied to keep it closed.

Here's what it looks like open.

I guess I better show you the birthday card that I tucked into this as well.

Sentiment is from Thinking of you stamp set. Flowers are from Simple starters and stamped in white ink. The small piece of brown cardstock tucked in the middle of the card is from my scrap pile. I added three tiny gold pearls to bling this up a bit. I personally think this card is rather blah and almost didn't show it!

Here are the rest of the Angels that are participating in the hop. Please stop by each of their blogs and leave some love!
