25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Hi there!

Paper Sweeties was invited by Tracey McNeely, to participate in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Blog Hop!

I decided to make Christmas ornament tags out of wool felt.  While we were in Amish Country(Berlin, Ohio) a few weeks ago, I purchased some wonderful wool felt.  I wanted them to have a Victorian old style look to them.  And, here they are...

I crocheted the flowers with pearl cotton and die cut the hearts from the set Sweet Cuts-Be Happy.  The hearts were attached to the flowers with a French knot.  The trees and bows are from the set Sweet Cuts-Stitched-Tags#2-mitten/tree.  I sewed two layers of the trees together with a blanket stitch.  Here is the back of one of the tag/ornaments...

My sister's birthday is in December, so I plan to give her these as one of her birthday gifts.  I had lots of fun making these and plan to make more!  Please stop by my teammates to see what awesome tags they created!  Have fun!
