"Anything But A Card" Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to your next stop on DeNami Design's "Anything But A Card" Blog Hop! If you're on track you've arrived here from the SUPER CREATIVE blog of Dana Seymour! If not, no worries...just click HERE to head to the DeNami Design Blog so you can start at the beginning!!! And remember...you'll want to leave a comment on each participant's blog in order to have the best odds of winning a FABULOUS PRIZE!!

With Christmas right around the corner, I decided to make some holiday tags! I LOVE making tags because they're quick, easy and SUPER FUN!! And they're such a GREAT way to add a personalized touch to any gift!!!

The Large Stocking image from DeNami Design is SOOOOO PERFECT for paper piecing!!! And with all of the GORGEOUS holiday patterned papers available on the market, the possibilities are endless! Not to mention, you could also stamp out your own patterned paper and then use that on the stocking as well! OR...you could use regular cardstock (in several colors), shimmer cardstock, embossed cardstock, and the list goes on and ON!!! (If you're looking for me at any point between now and Christmas...I'm probably in my craft studio making TONS of stockings!!! HA!) 




On the back, I stamped out To: and From: on a strip of cream cardstock and then drew in some faux stitches. And you can use the extra space for writing a special message to the recipient!


I hope you enjoyed my project for today and feel inspired to make some of your own holiday tags!!!

Next stop on the hop: Wendy Harrill's AWESOME blog!!!
