My tag for Day 4 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags is not my cup of tea at all.
In fact, I think it's absolutely vile... but I know that that has a lot to do with the fact that I used patterned papers that are not to my taste at all.
Not. My. Colour. Scheme. In. The Slightest.
But as I'm off to my first ever craft fair this coming week (it sounded like a good idea at the time, but now I'm beginning to dread it) I thought it best to stretch myself and see what others may or may not like. Others who aren't very kind craft people like you all are. x
I'm painfully aware that I may sell absolutely nothing, but I needed something to get absorbed in to keep me busy and exhausted. Busy means no time to think which is good right now.
Of course, this whole craft fair thing might just knock my confidence completely, but nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say.
So here's my ugly tag for this post...
The basics of this design are what I use on the back of my extra large tags to turn them into gift card tags. The peg stops the envelope inside from sliding out.
This very beautiful, very lovely green tag is what I used for my inspiration.
I should have used green, too. Sighs...

Off to post this on Flickr, Facebook, Instagram, etc...

If I've made you smile at all, that's my job done for today...
