Candy Cane Tag - MCT 5 Days of Christmas

Hello!  Today is Day 3 of the 5 Days of Christmas with My Creative Time.
For today's project I made a sparkly tag.  I always do a new tag every year to attach to my cookie platters.
This project got a bit messy.  Glitter was EVERYWHERE!  It seemed like every time I tried to clean it up I knocked the jar over and made it worse!  You could use stickles to create less mess but I wanted the chunkier effect, so glitter it was!!!  I used the Tag dies and attached a piece of card stock behind it to give it a layer. 
The "Merry Christmas" is from Teeny Tag Holidays stamp set.
I cut the Candy Cane from the Christmas Cheer Cricut Cartridge at 4".  The bow is the Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow die.

Merry Little Christmas 6x6 paper pad  - Fancy Pants
So this is Christmas 6x6 paper pad  -  Carta Bella
Pure Poppy, Pinefeather and True Black Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
Glitter, Ribbon and Black Hemp
Miss Emma is giving another fabulous prize away today!  I wanted to give away a little something too!  One person will win this cute Christmas House stamp from My Creative Time.  Make sure to comment on my blog the 3rd, 4th and 5th day of Christmas.  Please leave an email address so I can contact you if you are the winner!
That's it for me today.  Please come back tomorrow for the 4th day of Christmas!  Have a good one!

Awe what a great tag sorry about the glitter but I don't know one crafter who isn't wearing some type of glitter this time of year. Í must say that your end result was worth it.

I love this tag! It will look cute on your plate of goodies! It would be fabulous for packages too. I am loving the glitter, sorry it got out of hand, but it wouldn't have looked as nice without it!
