Quick and Easy Christmas Tags

Hi Stampers,
Usually I post a new project for you on Fridays, but with the Holiday being Thursday, I am going to post this one early for you this week. I'm sure many of you have all ready started or maybe some of you have already finished that Christmas Shopping and wrapping process...This is such a busy time of the year for all of us, and we need little shortcuts to help us get thru it all.  I hope these quick and easy little Christmas tags will help complete the front of your packages for that special person so that gift box looks extra special.  This "Christmas Tags Packet" was one of the six projects we made at my last card class on November 21st. These Christmas Tags are very simple and very fast to make, yet are very cute at the same time too. I used the Very Merry Tags Stamp Set on these. I hope you have as much fun making these as my class did.
