Stringless Christmas Tags #1

I took inspiration from this photo on Pinterest.

I figured I should make some tags for Christmas that don't always involve string.

I left this photo in because I changed my mind about what I would use for snow flakes on the tags.
 Here I am trying to figure out placement and realizing I needed to find a different solution to balance out the size of the punched snow flake versus the stamped snow flakes.
 Stamped the snow flakes in white ink then cleaned them and let them dry a little.

I stamped them again in a red ink once off on scratch paper then onto the white snow flakes just a little off set.
 I used a snow flake die and place it in between wax paper and the tag, the wax paper makes it easier to remove the intricate snow flake easily.
 Using Tombow Mono liquid glue to adhere the piece to my red mat.

Kraft is 2 inches by 3 1/2 inches.
Red is 2 1/4 inches by 3 3/4 inches.

Old card stock on hand from some card kits.
 Added a nice size pearl to the center, this was easier then replacing the smalled pieces from the snow flake die cut.

I added some foam adhesive to the back, leaving the backing on so that the person receiving the tag can remove the backing and place on their package.
