Last of my Tim tags...Day 11 and Day 12

I finally finished my Tim tags.
For day 11... For the background paper that I covered my tag with was from an early 1950's Woman's Day magazine. I inked up the right side of the tag. I didn't have the tree die, and so I had to draw and cut out a tree. I used white enamel accents to the tree branches for snow.
Again, I didn't have the snow flurries die. So, I just stamped a row of big snowflakes in blue ink down the left side of the tag. I rubber stamped Season's greetings as my saying to put behind the ornate bookplate. I added a piece of twine to the trunk of the tree, and placed a red gem on the top of the tree with a star hanging from my tags ribbon. My take on Day 11.

My Day 12 tag:
I used scrapbook paper from Tim's seasonal pack to make my tag. With my Cricut I cut out the 2 layered green and red ornament with the word Joy. To make the hanger for the ornament I twisted thin red wire.  I inked an old small December calendar page that I happened to have on hand. Every year I get a few of the little calendars at a local restaurant and they come in handy on art projects during the year.  I was glad to find I had kept an old calendar. I then added the metal corner brackets, some greens and fake berries. Also a  small red bow and red ribbon.

I am glad I finally finished my tags. Just sorry that I didn't have the time to follow along each day when Tim was posting his tags before Christmas. I didn't have a lot of the products Tim used, but it was fun seeing what I could find that I had on hand to make my tags.

Beautiful Elaine, all of them. I think I still like "Joy" and the poinsettia the most. Did I miss seeing somewhere what you will do with these? I mean, they are gift tags, but they are also works of art, and it seems they could be the gifts themselves!

I just want to thank everyone for the super nice comments you all left for my Tim tags. I had so much fun creating them. Glad you enjoyed them too. I'm not sure what I will do with the tags, but maybe they will be hung on my tree next year.
