Tag You're It!

Hello, crafters! I was lucky enough to discover a Card Trading Club practically in my own back yard. The women who belong to the club, which I found out about at my lss, invited me to join, and I have been able to make most meetings. This week, instead of cards, the trade is Christmas Tags.
Everyone brings in 16 baggies of 6 tags to pass along, kind of like a Cookie Exchange Night.

I remembered this week's meeting a couple days ago, and I was under the gun to produce almost 100 tags for the exchange, but as you can see, I persevered! LOL
I used Christmas patterned papers from my stash and my Creative Memories border punch system to make the lovely Christmas Tree cutouts on my tags. Adding a folded pieces of ribbon and some pearls and snowflakes, I added a stamped sentiment "To: From:" after inking the sides of my tags.
I can't believe I finished all these tags in less than two days of available crafting time! Of course, they are very CAS, but I like the way they turned out, and hope my fellow club members like them.
I can't wait to see all the tags tomorrow night!!
Have you started your Christmas crafting yet? I have a good start on my cards, thanks to the 12 Months of Christmas Link-Up Blog. I haven't started any handmade presents yet, though.
That's all for now. Happy crafting!
Challenges I am Entering:
