Cooking with Cricut #64 Holiday cards,gifts, and tags simple

Another wonderful challenge from Cooking with Cricut!  Here is what I created as a Design Team member:

I wanted to make a tag that was super quick and simple with my Cricut Imagine.  There are some really nice tags on the Snow Angel cartridges that you can make without doing anything but selecting the image!  I made some and embellished them before, posted on my blog here.

For this nice little tag, I used Art Philosophy.  I created this in Cricut Craft Room.  I decided what size to make the tag just eye balling it, then copied it and removed the inner design so they would be exactly the same size.  Then I filled them with coordinating color and pattern.  I made an entire sheet of these at once, so simple.  When I was decorating this tag with a few sparkle pens, I noticed another tag I had made from this same cart had a snowflake cut out, this tag.

So I used that center cut out to embellish my tag for this project!  Waste not want not! (excuse the bad photo, my camera battery was blinking so I was hurrying lol)

It took me longer to write this blog than it did to create an entire sheet of tags in CCR.  They glued together in just a minute or two---easy peasy!  

I hope you find it enjoyable to make all your gift tags for the holidays as well!  Happy Holidays to you all!
