Christmas and Holiday Gift Tags

I never seem to have enough Christmas tags for all of the gifts, so when I start making them for my craft fairs, I always make extra for me to use.  Here are just a few that I have started.
I cut some of the tags using my Big Shot and one of the tags from the Two Tags Bigz Die.  I then stamp an additional sentiment and punched it out with the Scallop Circle Punch.  I added the to and from in coordinating ink, and to the back of all of my tags I place a piece of Sticky Strip so the tags can easily be placed on a present.  I also made some tags with the retired Stocking Punch and added some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to dress them up. 
For my craft fairs I dress them up by placing them in a 4" x 6" cellophane bag that is held closed with cardstock that was cut with the Top Note Die and embossed with the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder.  They also make nice gifts to give when they are packaged this way. 
The following were used:
Cardstock: Real Red #102482, Whisper White #100730, Garden Green #102584
