Noel Christmas Gift Tag

I'll admit it...I'm addicted to crafting!  Some days I can't control my desire to create, and I'll spend hours in my craft room (if time allows).  Lately, I've been obsessed with making Christmas Gift Tags, and I'm hoping to have enough hand-made tags this year for all the gifts under the tree.  I've been SO inspired by all the fabulous tags shared in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event.  This particular tag was inspired by an adorable tag made by Lorraine Aquilina on Day 1.  Lorraine used a Christmas ornament image on her tag which inspired me.  I knew I had a cute 3-D Christmas ornament that I'd been wanting to use for quite some time, and her sweet tag gave me just the inspiration I needed.
I used a plain shipping tag and I added some Echo Park and Crate Paper patterned papers, chipboard, stickers and baker's twine.  The 3-D ornament is also from Crate Paper (one of my favorite craft companies).  I love textures, colors and all things with shabby cuteness.  I also love the cardinal.  The sentiment (NOEL) is a Melissa Frances rub-on.
Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by my blog today.  I can't even begin to explain how grateful I am that you take the time to visit and leave a comment.  I've sure enjoyed stopping by the blogs of others and gaining inspiration from their wonderful creations.  I thank you all for sharing your talents.  I'm going to be sharing my Christmas Gift Tag in here:

25 Days of Christmas Tags - As explained in more detail above, I was inspired by Lorraine Aquilina on Day 1 to create this tag using an ornament on the tag.
