Oh Christmas Tree! You Are So Fluffy!

The Tag You're It Challenge for the week is:

... to incorporate a Christmas tree somewhere onto your tag.

Any interpretation you like - it could be a bog standard Christmas tree or you could think outside the box and create something new, traditional or modern, the choice is yours.

Right, so this is a bog standard Christmas tree but I've fluffed it up with some funky wool (guess where from?!) by wrapping it round the die cut shape. It's all attached to a metallic tag which was in the sale at Matalan along with other sizes and colours. The grossgrain ribbon on the base of the tree is the same as the top, and I've added two gold star brads to complete it.

Although you can't see it, where I have cut the ribbon, it has been edged with gold glitter glue. Mainly to stop it from fraying.

  • Tag: Christmas Gift tags from Matalan (last year)
  • Die Cut: Sizzix Christmas Tree
  • Fibres: Funky wool from Blackburn market
  • Ribbon: From my stash (originally Blackburn market)
  • Brads: Making Memories
