Tree Tag

For Kristina Werner's Finally Friday video, she challenged viewers to create a paper pieced gift tag. Her tag was a very cute stocking shown here at Two Peas: http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/cg_display.asp?seed_id=31042

My husband's gift is a little difficult to wrap so I thought this would be a good opportunity to decorate it with a special tag. He gave me the Cricut for Christmas (quite a bit early) so I used it to create the little shopping bag. For the tree, I made a pattern and cut out several pieces of Stampin' Up!'s Designer Paper in Garden Green. I don't think I'd ever used this color but I really like it. The chipboard star was already cut and I just doused it heavily with Versamark and dunked it in loads of gold embossing powder. If only I could turn chipboard to real gold!

The traditional colors were dictated by what kind of ribbons I had available in small enough sizes for the packages. The tree finished out to be about inches high. I sort of got obsessed with this project once I started. I was going to wait and finish it today but stayed up later last night to get it done. Just couldn't wait to see how it would all come together.
