Christmas Tags

I ended up enjoying the Christmas Tags project more than I expected.  It was very easy and I think they look pretty cool.  I love the unstructured, organic feel to them.  I ended up ripping everything except the base.  I often times cut an "extra" of an item, just in case the first one doesn't look "right".  Given this habit, I have lots of cuts waiting for a home.  Tags would be a great place for some of them.

The challenge is create a tag, from scraps in your scrap studio, using Terrie's tutorial. (I'll be checking out Terri's projects in the future.  I love the way she designs.)
Here are the 6 tags I made.  If you look closely, the one in the middle, top comes from the letters in my Noel card.  The one in the middle bottom uses extra branches from Okie Ladybug's Christmas Tree.  I used a cut from SVGCuts for the trees but I easily could have made triangles with slits in them.  The cardboard came from the edge of a postal box.  The one thing I need to learn is how to separate the cardboard a little better.  The top layer was partially sticking to the bottom layer so you wouldn't see the ridges.
