I've gone present tag crazy!!

I decided that with all my craftiness of late, that this year instead of buying a $1 sheet of christmas present stickers, that I would make my own tags. And with not sleeping much of late, I thought what a great use of my 'non-sleep' time, make tags!!
Unfortunately I don't own a 'tag' die, so just measured out some manilla tags I had and went from there.  I watch Kristina Werner do her dash lines around her cards all the time, and thought what a perfect time to try them out. I can see why she does them as it makes such a difference!!
I used my usual Lawn Fawn 'Peace Joy Love' 6x6 pad and also this fantastic Studio Callico 'Magical Collection' 6x6 pad that I found at The Warehouse!! Very amazing to find it there and absolutely love all the different patterns and colours (lots of grey and white!!). 
I basically just tried out whatever I could think of. These ones I started with first. You get two pages of these tags with the Lawn Fawn pad and used them to get ideas. I love light blue and white and am now loving red and black, very modern yet christmasy.
Would be nice to have a die so could cut them out properly every time but hey, that's what handicraft is all about...being handmade and not perfect everytime. Well, that's what I tell myself.....

Have done a few few tonight including some small cards, will post those tomorrow. Must try going to sleep, not many sleeps left till christmas and still so many things to do!

Take care
Shona
