I made a few gift tags for Christmas using my Labels Four Nestie dies plus co-ordinating stamp sets from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The first tag was to go on a little extra gift for my friend Jan, just as a special thank you for the many kindnesses she has shown me throughout the past year. I sponged some Distress Ink around the vanilla tag and then I also sponged the gingham ribbon with the ink too, as it would have been too white left as it was. I added a lovely SU! Latte Designer Button to the tag to finish off.
This next tag was tied to my hubbie's bag of Christmas gifts. I dug out my neglected PaperTrey monogram sets for this tag and added some jingle bells.
The last tag was to go on a very special gift for our friend Mike. He is a real ginger lover - while I'm not at all keen! Anyway, I made him some stem ginger ice cream and tied the tag onto the plastic container with gingham ribbon. I used Delia Smith's recipe from her latest book so that's why I signed the tag with love from Ruth & Delia! We absolutely love Delia - Dame Delia we call her and we often make the bowing "we are not worthy" gesture when we talk about her!
