Super Simple Project of the Week #20 Let it snow gift tags

It is December first and we are all thinking about what to get out friends and family.  Add a special touch to your gift with this gift tag that is super simple to make.
What you will need:
- .22 chipboard             - Zig 2-Way glue Pen              - 1 1/2 inch scallop punch
- glue                            -Stickles  in Crystal                 - Winter Stamp
-Winter designed paper         - Stamp Ink                    - Embellishments                                
- Joys of the Season Cricut Cartridge              - eyeletts
- glitter
 I cut out the snowflake on page 61 using the blackout feature on the chipboard at 3 inches  and the layering paper.  I also used the flip feature to cut out a blackout snowflack to cover the back.  If you do not use flip for the back side, the paper will not fit correctly.  So, cut out your image on the winter paper once on your regular setting and once using the flip feature.
This snow flake had several different centers to choose from.  You can pick and choose which one you like the best.
For the blue part of the flake cut at 2 3/4 inches,  I glued it down , added Crystal Stickles to it and added a white snowflake and brad to the center. Three holes were punched, one on the flake and 2 on the scallop circle.  Eyelets were added and the phrase was stamped.  Ribbon was looped through the flake and run through the scallop making sure it goes behind the scallop.

 As for the pink center of the flake to the left I cut it out at 2 1/2 inches, glued it down and used my Zig pen to make the front sticky.  Glitter was added to the front for some sparkle. :)

I hope you enjoyed this super quick tutorial.  Stay inspired.
