MCT Designer Challenge, Winter Holiday Tag

I love challenges. This week's challenge is by Katie and I really had fun with it. Katie's challenge is to make a Winter Holiday Tag. For the tag itself, I used the large photo frame die.

Then I took my tag a couple of steps further and made it shaker ornament tag! Shakers have always been such fun for me to make and I'm so happy to see them making a "come back" after being something of a dormant embellishment the past few years. For filler, I used snowflake confetti in silver and blue, with a mix of white, clear, and blue glass seed beads. For hanging, I ran the twine through a matching bead and knotted the end.

Embellishing was fun and easy. Flowers made from the MCT Rolled Flowers dies; add a mini pine cone and paper punch branches, and done. :)
