Welcome bag to another week at Cupcake Inspirations! This week we are sponsored by DRS Designs - gah, LOVE their digi images!! I have one and hope to color it up this week; it's adorable!!! But for this challenge, I wanted to finish up a Christmas gift and complete some gift tags.  But first, our adorable inspiration photo:

I think those entire images are edible - look at the oreos for a hat - adorable! So...as you can see, I didn't use a snowman, instead I used SNOWFLAKES which we use to make a snowman...tricky eh? HA - not, but it finished my Christmas gift theme. :D

I'll give a brief explanation because I have TONS of pictures to share!! I made 4 tags using a super old ellison die; I rounded the bottom of each tag. I also cut 2 pieces per tag - one of Fresh Linen card stock; the other of designer paper (Carte Bella) Each piece of designer paper was stamped with a 2nd generation snowflakes from PTI's Snowflake Serenade. Then I used Spellbinders to cut some snowflakes, edged all the papers with various inks, tied on some buttons and twine and a strip of the opposite paper to each tag; stamped the back with Scarlet Jewel ink, "to:, from:, and more 2nd generation snowflakes". Glued the two pieces of each tag together and tied on some twine.
