Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek | Day 3

Welcome back to day 3 of Taylored Expressions sneak peeks!  We have 3 more sets to show you today and if you've been counting, that makes a total of NINE new sets for October - I told you this release was HUGE!  I've got a fun little project for you this morning using Tag You're It, an adorable set of holiday tags.

Taylor challenged us to make a set of gift tags and packaging and I took this Small Hinged Tin and altered it using the papers and ribbon from the Snow Day Project Pantry Kit.  I cut the cardstock and patterned paper to size and used the large corner rounder to fit it to the lid.  The ribbon is tucked underneath the lid and the ends are tucked away under cardstock.
I stamped each of the different tag images in ColorBox Fluid Chalk ink on kraft cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers - the sentiments are separate stamps, so you can customize each tag as you wish.  I added a little Alabaster Fluid Chalk ink along the edges of each tag and tied a piece of Cherry Twine to the side.  All of the tags were cut out with the Favor Frame Taylored Die - super easy!

Here is a sample of each tag -

The Baker's Dozen have much more for you to see, using Tag You're It, Take Note Holidays and Keeping Tabs, so swing on by to see:
