Christmas Tree Tag

This is another tag I made during a recent craft session with my oldest daughter, 2 of my nieces, and my sister-in-law. I sure hope we make it an annual tradition to make Christmas projects together in early December because it was so much fun to be creative together!

This tag is similar to the last one I posted in that it has the same base of two tags die cut from a Tonic Studios tag die I won in the Word Art Wednesday blog hop last December. You can enter the current Word Art Wednesday blog hop here: Word Art Wednesday: Anything Goes - Annual BLOG HOP. As in the previous tag, I embossed the red side with Altenew's Perfect Poinsettia's 3D embossing folder. 

For the front of the tag, I used a Christmas tree I die cut from another Tonic Studios die and adhered some pretty sequins as ornaments. Then I used a metallic gold star for the top of the tree and cut the "Very merry" sentiment from some Christmas card stock. 

The back of the tag features a joke from Sarah Edwards from Craft with Sarah that she included in her Christmas Craft Countdown. It's so perfect for my husband because his favorite hymn of all time is "Silent Night." 

To finish the tag, I added some white and gold twine to the top.
