Whimsical Tags for Christmas Love Campaign

Did you hear that the Christmas Love Campaign Tags Challenge was extended to Nov 27?   I did, so I whipped up a few.   I really had fun making these adorable, bright, happy, whimsical tags.  
I used papers by Susan K Weckesser Inc.  I chose a paper that I had torn to create a previous project and still had left over.   I scored the paper at 4 5/8”
After folding, I used Tim Holtz Tag & Tie by die and placed the fold just above the bottom edge of the die so that it would not cut where I folded. 
After running the papers and die through my Big Shot, I had a few torn & folded custom tags. 
I loved the sunshine peeking out and decided to make a snowman on a sunny day.  It can happen, right?   I used a variety of Unity stamps cobranded with Susan K Weckesser Inc to stamp different images.  I then used Pan Pastels to color in my snowman and add even more color to the tags. 
My sister-in-law was here with me and saw this pom-pom ribbon in my stash and thought they would make cute snowballs.   She was so right, too.  
Isn’t it adorable?
I used more stamps, Pan Pastel colors, Faber Castell, stencils, and Archival Inks to color and stamp my other two tags. 
I colored these images with Faber Castell Big Brush Pens and PITT pens to color in the bird and flowers.   The “Create to Live” was cut from another piece of Susan K Weckesser Inc’s papers.  
I loved this one.   It just made me happy using Susan K Weckesser’s a little bit washi stamps as well as actually using washi paper to close my folded tag.  The little pockets on the tags can be used to place a personalized note, smaller tag, or little card.  
Now, I’m going to give these away this weekend and then share my tags on the Christmas Love Campaign Facebook page.   You still have a few days to join us for this challenge. 
For those of you in the US, have a Happy Thanksgiving today!
