Chrsitmas Gift Tag - Using Bargain Ikea Snovita Chrsitmas Tags!

When i spotted these tags in Ikea I just could not resist them, they were coloured on the front and plain on the back so i thought they would be great for embossing!

For the bargain price of 99p there are 12 in a pack and some thin white string too, they come attached to some thick acetate using slots in the corners, you could use this to make a little 3 tag display type thing... leave it with me!

I embossed the tag with a sizzix snowflake embossing folder and sanded it a little before adding a little extension to the tag with a punched edge and some lace

I embellished the top withs ome die cut eyelet washers and a snippet of lace!

A little flat backed pearl and it was complete!!

Love these. I bought some ikea wrapping paper which is double sided and I thought would be perfect for matting, but must have missed these tags!May have to plan a return journey!Thanks for sharing.
