~Hot Cocoa Mix Gift Tag~

Just a quick post today to share a tag I made this morning to put on a canister of Hot Cocoa Mix that I am sending to my oldest son. I LOVE how this tag turned out. I love Papertrey's tag dies, they make creating so much fun!

I saved a empty powdered milk canister and covered it with wrapping paper. That was an ordeal! (Maybe that is why I have a headache!) ;o) I used the Tag sale 2 die from Papertrey and cut a Kraft tag. Stamped a snowflake from an old SU set in SU White craft ink and I also inked the edges of the two tags. Then I stamped the adorable mug image from PTI's Tiny Treats Christmas in PTI Dark Chocolate. I made a second tiny tag with a die from Cuttlebug and stamped the saying from PTI Holiday Treats in SU craft Real Red. It was such a fun tag to make. I am sure my son will not even notice! LOL!! ;o)

I hope y'all are enjoying the blessings of this Christmas season!
