|Christmas Gift Tags|
This week's Make It Monday, Dawn McVey challenges us to double up on tags for a layered effect. I love that her tags have a masculine feel because I need to make around 30 tags to go along with my annual banana nut bread loaves I bake for my husband's employees. All of his employees, except the secretary, are male. Because of that I like to design something that is festive, yet toned down a little.

While I like my original tag, I realized that the mini-loaves that I bake will be hidden by the first tag I created! So I dialed it back a little and was able to create several styles of tags and use up a lot of my scraps and odds and ends. All in all a very productive day! See below for the process and samples of my final product. Thanks for stopping by!
