I made tags to put in pockets because my favorite pocket card was listed with directions. I needed the directions because every time I try this one, I have to learn all over again. And this time I learned you don't want to try this one with flocked or heavily glittered Cardstock. (smile) So I wasted a couple sheets of the stuff but it will go into the scrap pile and you know me and scraps. They don't go to waste.
I made two tags. The top one is an oval with an embossed ornament glued onto it. The recipient could hang it on their tree. The lower one is a Red Castle tag with a Victorine Originals house scene with Merry Christmas stamped on it. I also like to use the middle pocket for a tea bag. Thanks for lookin'.

Oh yes, I've been there! This is a great tutorial for double-sided card but only the lighter weights. However, knowing you I am quite sure the discards will be put to very good use. And this is lovely - I like the way the embossed panel over the burlap picks up on the dotted pattern in the paper, and the red & gold ornament against the black is stunning.

You know, if I saw that piece of burlap sitting on my craft table, I'd probably throw it away......LOL....(per our previous discussions). You used it beautifully, of course.....I really love the strip laying across it too....gorgeous!

This is doubly delightful with a duo of tags! Fab design..I love that the top tag could be hung on a tree. Great job on this Carol..I'm sure I would need to check the directions, too..it looks complicated to me..I'm not one for making a lot of things with folds.
