How fun is a tag hop!! I love tags! Tags can make a simple package or gift bag special. For my tags I am using on of my favorite TE holiday stamp sets, Joy to the World and the Banner Holidays stamp set and Banner Day 1 die

To make my tags I just cut rectangles in red cardstock and rounded the upper corners. But be sure to check out Taylor's Tags & Tag-a-Longs for a fast, and easy tag option! My patterned papers are from Echo Park Season's Greeting 6 x 6 Pad




Viva Pearl and Paper Pens are a new item in the TE store. They are available in lots of colors. I used one for the first time on my tag and really like them. They are so easy to use and control the size of your dot and settled in to a nice, rounded pearl. 


I stamped the angel in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, paper pieced her dress, added glitter to her wings, and used the Red Pearl Pen to add my pearls. 

At the top I punched out a 1" circle and used my Crop-A-Dile to attach a We R Memory Keepers Wide Eyelets. Then I added Christmas Doodle Twine at the top to attach the tag to my package. I also added white cardstock to the back of my tag so I could write who the gift is for and a personal note. 




Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to stop by all the designers blogs today for lots more TAG inspiration.
