Ornament or Tag?

Happy Thursday, everyone! Today I have an ornament/tag to share with you. I have been wanting to use these 2010 Heirloom Ornament Nestabilities since I received them -- I thought they would be great for gift tags.

Well, I got to work with some October Afternoon The Thrift Shop paper, my Cuttlebug and Polka Dots embossing folder, and Just Rite's Christmas Nested Sentiments, and I'm thrilled with how it turned out!

I topped the ornament with Crochet ribbon and the MFT Die-namics Let It Snowflake Trio. There are three layers of felt and paper snowflakes under all the Glitzy Glitter -- take my word for it! :) Other details: button, jingle bell, burlap string, stitching, and a tiny rhinestone on the "i". I sponged the sentiment flag with Tea Dye Distress Ink.

Although this project started out in my head as a tag, I love it so much that's it's now on my tree! I think I'll be making a few more!

That's all for today -- thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a great day!

LOVE this and the dp you used, I would say both, but I would use them as tags for sure.
