A Simple Little Tag for You...

I hope everyone is recovered from a gluttonous Thanksgiving! It's been an amazing few months for me on the 2 Sketches 4 You Design Team. I've gotten to know some amazing and talented ladies and been inspired by their gobs and gobs of creativity. We're taking the rest of the year off as all of us, Kazan and Laura included, gear up for the holidays. So, this week, Kazan has a simple tag sketch to help us all with our holiday giving. Until next year (gulp!) you can visit the 2S4Y site for some taggy inspiration.
For my tag, I used some of my fave holiday sets from Taylored Expressions and paired them with the super-fast-and-easy coordinating dies. I figure I can churn these out by the bucket loads while snuggled up indoors before Christmas!

(Pssst! Tune in tomorrow for some fun news and a giveaway!)

SPILLING THE BEANS

  1. Stamp frame and sentiment on cardstock. Die cut.
  2. Cut slit in frame with hobby blade. Thread ribbon and tie bow.
  3. Stamp snowflake on cardstock; die cut. Adhere with strong adhesive.
  4. Adhere gemstone.
  5. Punch hole and thread baker's twine. Tie off.
BEAN NOTES
HAPPY BEANS

Beautiful holiday tag! Love the deep red color against the soft blue. And dies are my favorite this season for making everything from tags to card embellishments and adding to gift packages. Have a wonderful holiday!
