A Merry Christmas Gift Tag

I’ve been MIA again.. hubby is on call this week and when he’s on call, my workshop and crafting have to take a back seat 🙂

However, tonight I have had a chance to come up into the workshop, in the freezing cold, snowy weather and have some fun making things, first up is this gift tag, it measures 3.5″  x 4.5″ and is the leftover part of the chipboard mini album page that I used when making the “Twas the night before christmas” tree hanger.
