I was feeling all pleased with myself
that all cards were sent and presents wrapped.
Wrapped? Eek!
Light bulb moment 
I needed 4 Christmas tags asap.
Now being a hoarder/thrifty person 
I keep all the tags/ribbon that come off new clothes
for just such ocassions so out came the pile to sort through.

Then I raided the snippets box for paper
and already printed out images.
Next I spent a happy hr or 2 'Spudling'
as the The Doc calls my creative outbursts.
Rudolph came all the way over from USA
stamped on an envelope from my good bloging buddy
Darnell.  Well I couldn't just  throw him away could I!
I gave him some sparkly antlers and a sparkly bow.
The post box is a digi  by 'Little Musings' 
that I coloured with promarkers and then liberal
helpings of white and red  Stickles.
The ribbon came with the tags.
Below is the back of them with space
left for the greetings.

Another rudolph digi. This time 'Roddy Reindeer'
by flat friends Emma Canning.
Fussy cut and given a liberal coating of stickles.
Snowman is by  'Digi Stamp 4 Joy' 
The digi is a snowman at the base of a candle.
I fussy cut the snowman out
colouring with my promarkers

 and then added the candle part on the back.
Berries are 2 colours of liquid pearls applied.

Sentiments are Anita's stick ons in 
both gold and silver.

You can make something from anything!!! I love all of these adorable tags, and I WISH my snippet pile looked like yours!! Considering these are all recycled items, I'm just amazed at what you can do! I love that you saved the stamped envelope with Rudy and re-purposed him into a tag!
