As our Tag It challenge continues I'd like to share another little one I made.  This, together with the little gift from challenge #21, is on it's way to darling Ho!

Every little scrap of Kraft cardstock I have is put to good use!  These little tags are so quick and fun to make and tied around a glassine bag make perfect packaging.



This is also a nice way of using up any scraps of designer paper after making larger projects.

The twine is sandwiched between two pieces of cardstock, which means it can be tied around a gift easily and re-used once the gift is opened.

We thoroughly enjoyed seeing your Four Season creations.  A big thank you to all who shared their projects with us.  The winner of our little giveaway is No 13. darling ho.  Congratulations!  Please email Mandy your address and we will pop it in the post to you.

For my tag I used gorgeous Melissa Frances 5th Avenue Papers along with Silk Ribbon, Pom Pom Trim, Bronze Key Charm and button from The Ribbon Girl, a Tim Holtz Ticket, Making Memories Garment Pin, one of my handmade Decorative Pins, and a die cut heart painted with white Acrylic Paint.

For this tag I have used a printed paper and embellished it with a little metal butterfly.  The lace and seam binding bow always look great on tags.  I have also embellished with little paper roses.



The tag below has a sepia printed image of fishing boats.  I have kept it quite plain but I always have trouble when it comes to masculine projects.  


I have emellished with a little tag and pearl rhinestones.   The ends of the tag I have added seam binding just to give it a nice little finish.



Our little giveaway for this challenge are these gorgeous Flower and Bird stickers from Panduro Hobby.






You have until midnight Tuesday 5th July to share your creations with us.  We look forward to seeing them!  Don't forget if you don't have a blog, pop a photo on an email and we will add it here.

In New Zealand, where I'm from, it is winter and even though we've been having lovely days they are certainly getting cooler. 
For my winter project I've used this cute snowman image and added kindy glitz for a sparkly look to the 3 little snowmen and the snowflakes.
I used the cuttlebug cut and emboss die Ice Crystal Snowflake, Spellbinders beaded ovals and decorated with rhinestones.

Here in the UK it's spring, and it's so lovely to see all the flowers bursting into bloom and hear the birds singing away in the trees.  However, I wasn't so pleased to hear the cockerel that woke us around 4.30am each morning of our camping trip!!



For my spring creation I've used gorgeous Beatriz Jennings downloads from her Esty Shop, together with Baby Blue Faux Silk Ribbon and Fine Cotton Lace from The Ribbon Girl, a gorgeous wee birds nest made for me by the very talented Marlou and two of my decorative pins.


Our little give away are gorgeous padded angel wings in four different colours together with three very dainty pink crochet flowers.




Our Four Seasons Challenge runs until midnight Tuesday 21st June NZ time.  We look forward to seeing all your fabulous creations!


Don't forget if you haven't got a blog send us a photo via email and we will share your creation with everyone.
