The Large Gift Tags

I wanted to use up my "scrap" pieces of cardstock that I had left over from cutting my tag kit. I had tons of these sahara sand cardstock strips left an then it hit me. I could fold them in half and make a large gift tag out of them! I really liked the size. You could use it as a card too. I just didn't have any envelopes in my stash to sell it as a card.
Here are the five different designs that I made. Remember my favorite guy in the red suit? A cute snowman ... coloring this image was a little challenging because I had cut the DP and mounted it on before I colored the image. I had to go with something soft for this snowman. I really liked the colors that I ended up with.
A playful pup...
A silly penguin...
A cute monkey...
Another snowman image. Aren't they so cute? Did you know that I love snowmen stuff?
I made a total of 30 cards, wrapped them in cello bags and closed them with a punched out image in a circle. I sold them for only $1.00 each! What??? Are you nuts? Yes, I am! Hey, I figured that this is the season of giving and I hope that all of you that bought these large tags from me know how much time and effort it took me to create them just for you! I think it's the coloring that is therapeutic for me. I'm thinking of making more and maybe I'll be giving them away.
Thanks for dropping by today! It's Aloha Furlough Friday for me...going out to lunch with some GF's. Tomorrow, I'll be posting my reindeer tags and how I wrapped them. Hope you all have a wonderful day!

I hope the receivers of your gift tags/card will keep them or recycle them as they are so cute - I love how you just put part of the image on the card - I should try that. Enjoy your furlough Friday, Teri.

ALL of your tags/cards are so cute, Teri! I know how much time you put into each one of them and to sell them for just $1 is really giving it from your heart! May you be forever blessed for the kindness and generosity you always share. Have a restful weekend! Cami
