Last night I made up a pile of quick gift tags. Essentially, what I did was use the Tim Holtz size tag... throw a Christmas Stamp or two on the back and, for the non-immediate family, also put a "from...." there too. I then used my distress stains (they are so quick and easy) and some glam and glaze to add some colour front and back and then cut a photo of the recipient down to fit the front. Another stamp or two and a piece of string and you have a visual talking point sitting atop your presents.

Here are a couple of pictures. I will put a few more up on the blog, which you can see here .
