Christmas Tags

Happy Holidays! Let me first apologize for taking such a long break between posts. But between holiday parties to attend, gifts to buy (and wrap), holiday baking, working 40 hours a week outside the home, cleaning house, doing laundry, making dinners, and taking care of both myself and my husband, my life is just as crazy as yours! Just in case I didn't have enough to keep me crazy busy, I decided that each gift needed a matching tag. Thank goodness I am only using four different wrapping papers. (Once I have created a tag, I do make several of them.) The tags are in order from the first to the last.
The first tag is going on my daughter's Christmas gift. The wrapping paper is vanilla with blue snowflakes. As her mom, I had this overwhelming sense to put a Santa on it. She's a young lady(24), so why not add some bling?
The second tag is on my friend Andra's gift. The wrapping paper is solid green with some brown and white stitched ribbon. I wanted something to reflect the paper, but be a bit grown-up.
The last tag is on my mother's gift. The paper is green with white flourishes. So, I only thought it fitting that the tag be white with green accents. My mother is over 60, and so it definitely needed to be a bit sophisticated. That is why I added the silver. I think that the bling adds a 'finished' touch.
Thank you for looking. As I get some more completed I'll share them with you.
