Interactive Holiday Tag

Good Afternoon,

Today I have made a Christmas Tag which is also a goodie holder. I love this stamp and is so appropriate for my youngest son who is now working at Snow Valley in Idaho. He is a wonderful man who is so encouraging and supportive to me! He is one of my biggest fans. I miss him very much.

I decided to make this fun tag for him and of course it will contain some special gift. I used this chipboard mitten and on the back attached an envelope with a small tag. The envelope can hold cash, check or a gift card. The small tag is a pull out and I have attached some twine to make it easier to pull.

A closer view of Edwin:
