Retro Christmas Scrap Tags

Ho Ho
Are we getting ready for Christmas yet???
Sure does sneak up on us doesn't it?

One of the things I most enjoy is the wrappings,
even more then the gifts I think.
Sometimes I think the wrappings are far way better then the gift..LOL!!

Each year, my sister, niece, and daughter (and myself) do a countdown to Christmas.
We include my Mom, too, but being 88 we don't expect her to shop!
We buy each other 8 gifts, we shop year round,
then starting Dec 1st, we each get to open a gift a day until the big day...
the 25th!!
We get together on the 3rd of December,
each bring some yummy food...
stuff our faces, then we each open one gift from each other.

Which brings me to what today's post is all about....

I always make as many of my own tags for this get-together as I can
and when I saw 
Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage Cuts
they just screamed TAGS to me!!

I am calling them scrap tags, as each and every one was made with
things I had previous cut and not used, snippets of ribbons I couldn't
make myself throw away, and bits and pieces of scrap papers!

Some of tags open like these will....
with the 'To and From' inside

Here are a few more I made....
There are 10 in total made from just one printed sheet!

 Look like fun?
Head on over to Crafty Secrets and take a peek at all
the wonderful selections available for Christmas....
make some tags of your own...
they make your gift giving even more special!

What a terrific way to use those scraps! Another terrific idea and so pretty too!! I can just imagine the faces light up when you put these on gifts.

Gosh, these tags are so cute! I love to see this post every year. It sounds like so much fun and you always make the most awesome packaging for it. I know the girls look forward to it, too. Yes, many times the packaging is better than the gift, but that's part of the fun, too. So fabulous, Diane!
