12 Days of Christmas Tags 2020; Day TEN

Day 10 and only a few more tags to go to complete the 12 Days of Christmas Tags series. Today's tag was a mostly recycled project. 

My lunch from Panera was in the beautiful paper bag and I had to keep it.

I cut out some basic triangles for Christmas trees out of it. The tag bases and stars were from a thin cardboard piece that was included with some paper that I purchased years ago. I kept it for so long and finally remembered that I had it. After cutting the stars with my Cricut, I used the crimper...yes, I said crimper to give these a corrugated cardboard look.
Splattered some watered down white acrylic paint on them & punched a hole at the top.
To add color to the tags, I used my stamp roller to add three different layers of stamped images. The first layer are holiday words in Cranberry Crisp ink, swirls & stars in Honey, and another layer of stars in Copper Metallic ink.

I pulled out tools that I haven't used in

I glued the "trees" directly on the tags with some wet adhesive, added a ribbon, tied the star & bells with twine and punched the banner with a punch. It’s hard to see from the photos but the center of the banners are adhered with foam adhesive to give it more dimension.

I hope you've been following the series and leaving comments each day. At the end of the series, I will gather all the commenters, put their name for a drawing. The person picked will receive a set of one of each of the 12 tags in the 2020 series. Be sure to leave a comment every day for more chances to win.
