Elegant but easy Christmas gift tags



Since it is Monday, I have a project made for the Bitten By the Bug 2 blog. Today's challenge calls for gift tags made using your cricut. I used the Merry and Bright cartridge and a few Close To My Heart embellishments.

I love making tags and they are so easy to make. You can really dress them up or keep them simple. I try to keep the ones I put on my brothers' gifts VERY simple. They do not seem to appreciate the time I put into this stuff.















 This week's prize is the Edge to Edge cartridge!! The winner will be announced on Sunday the 22nd.
To win:
1) Follow this blog or subscribe via email.
2) Leave a comment under one or all posts this week for maximum chances. See HERE if you don't know how to leave a comment

Your brother loves you even though
he doesn't show it. Your gift tags would even make beautiful tree ornaments. Just keep doing what you love. rosebud114

Your tags are beautiful in their simplicity! I agree, I hate to see something that you spent time on just get crumpled up. I am afraid my packages look pretty plain. The ribbons and embellies are so perfect with these tags.
