Ho Ho Oh

Hello.  Welcome.  Some fun techniques over at Marks Finest Papers blog and this week they want us to punch both sides.  I decided to make a christmas tag and now I have the design sorted I can see me making a few of these for the xmas packages.  

The cute santa head and sentiment are from Marks Finest Papers Holiday Tags set.  I cut a red and a white tag and used Fiskars Holly border punch on the red one.  I stamped, coloured and fussy cut Santa and embossed the Ho Ho Ho directly on the tag.  A bit of wool and a snowflake brad and it's ready to go.

  4. Now this is a tag I can really use! I love the jolly Santa face and those punched borders look perfect!

  5. Very cute tag. We all can use up quite a few of those at Christmas time!

    I have not played over at Marks very much since they changed their format. I used to love their Christmas Cards for a year Challenge. Sigh... Miss it actually!

  6. Great layering technique on your tag and the Santa is a cutie. :-)
