A Waltzingmouse Christmas - Day 3 - Christmas Tags

Welcome to Day 3 of A Waltzingmouse Christmas.  Today Claire's assignment to the Design Team was to create lots of Christmas Tags using any of the Waltzingmouse stamp sets and maybe some of the new dies for the older stamp sets she now has available in the shop.

Mission Accomplished!  For my first tag I used two of the Opera Tag dies and Claire's brand new Mistletoe die.  The mistletoe stamp from Festive Foliage is one of my favorites - it's such a great shape!.
I put my tag on a tin tie glassine bag and filled it with molasses cookies along with  kisses!

For my next tag - I went country cozy - using this sweet gingerbread man and sentiment from Candy Jar Christmas - Fillers.
I attached my tag to a tin tie kraft bag that I stamped with the hearts from Nordic Winter and filled with the same molasses cookies! (minus a few that Kent and I ate to be sure they were good enough to give away!)
I hope I've inspired you with my tags - now lets see what the rest of the Design Team linked below has to share with us!


Hope to see you back here tomorrow for the final day of A Waltzingmouse Christmas!
