A Tag, a card & a gift - all in one!!

Candycane Christmas Cupcake provided by Bugaboo

Had an idea for a card, gift and tag all in one... I cut the shape and covered in a designer paper with red glitter on the checkerboard. I colored two of the Bugaboo cupcake digis with Copics, added the horizontal panel to provide support for their width, and layered them on the front.  "Ho, Ho, Ho!" was stamped on the top and a heart shaped button was sewn on to provide closure for the card portion of the tag.  A double bow and a triple bow were added as a tag hanger & an embellishment.
A pocket was created on the inside to hold a gift card or money - which completes my triple threat!

My project was designed for the latest challenge - "Bags, Tags, Boxes & More", at 613 Ave C.  You can click on the link to view what the other DT are doing for this challenge - OMGosh!  These ladies give me a run for my money with their creativity!  Accept the challenge and get your project(s) in by Saturday, Nov 1!  The prize sponsor is Bugaboo - and you could pick up these fun Christmas cupcakes!
