Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style--Tags

Welcome to this week's Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style--Tags. We were to come up with tags: tags for home or tree decor,  tags for Christmas packages and gifts, tags for just about anything! My tag for today is for gift packaging:


My tag features Stampavie's "Winter Birdhouse." You can see the entire collection of Stampavie stamps here...such sweet images! The tag is meant to be attached directly to the gift, with the image panel that swings open to reveal the sentiment and the recipient's name.
Spellbinder's "Small Deckled Rectangles" (check with Sharon for availability) were used for cut the image panel.


 Here you can see the tag opened. I used JustRite's "Winter Words" set to create the greeting. You can also see the Velcro Sticky Back Coin that holds the door of the tag closed. A brad helps secure the velcro for a sure fit.

Decorator paper used today is Prima's "North Country." You can see the entire North Country collection HERE. May Art's Striped red ribbon adds a festive border touch, and tab to the tag opening.

All linked products are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.


And...This is a Mystery Blog Candy, meaning the winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs, so leaving a comment on each blog will greatly increase your chances of winning, but only one comment per blog, please. The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, November 29 and will be posted on Sharon's blog on Wednesday, so please check back to claim your prize if you are the lucky winner! Good luck!
