25 Days of Christmas Tags + Concord & 9th

Hello!  I'm excited to be joining my friend Tracey's amazing 25 Days of Christmas Tags Event today.  My Where Creativity Meets C9 team and I are showcasing Concord & 9th, one of the event's fabulous sponsors.  
I had lots and lots of ideas swirling in my head for this tag, but I didn't use any of them!  I was pulling out my Concord and 9th Christmas dies and happened to get a partial view of Concord & 9th's Hope Label Die.  In fact, all I saw was "HO" and curiosity got the best of me.  I had to see if I could turn this everyday die into a Christmas tag.  
It turns out that if you cut a 2" strip of paper, "HO" from the Hope Label Die fits perfectly.  The edge of the strip will be right up against the "P" on the die, so it makes lining up really easy.  I die cut "HO" three times, then trimmed the length of my tag to 5.5" and cut the bottom with one of straight edge Select-a-Size Edge Dies.  I needed something for the string to go through, so I pulled out the Sprinkles Tag Dies and used one of the little hole topper dies. 
Just for fun I stamped the back of the second tag with Concord & 9th's Barnwood Background Stamp.  Might as well be cute on the front and the back, right?  
The 25 Days of Christmas Tags is definitely something you do not want to miss out on.  There is so much inspiration and SO many prizes to be won, so make sure you visit Tracey's Blog right away to find out how and enjoy the fun.  Have a blessed week!
