Jillibean Soup 25 Days of Christmas Tags...

Hello Friends! It's so close to being the festive season and I can't wait to share some fun things I've been working on! But before December comes around, some of the Jillibean Soup DT members are participating in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags hop. Here's a look at what I put together.


I love the look of these kraft tags. I've used a Jillibean Soup die cut on the front of one of the tags and then sewn it onto a second identical tag. But sandwiched in between the kraft is a stamped image of the Jillibean Soup truck on some fun Christmas mood patterned papers.


Each little truck has a different surprise sitting on the back of its tray.


And each tag has been completed with the use of a red ribbon or bakers twine.


Don't forget to check out the other amazing ideas on the Jillibean Soup blog here.
