Cross Stitch used to be a hobby of mine so it was lovely to pick up a needle and Embroidery Floss again and make these tags!! I have to say, I love them and will definitely be making more of these! 


I used the partial die cut technique, ie, hang the lower edge of the die over the edges of the cutting plates and then moved it down a bit to elongate the tags. 

I actually bought several lip balms, there are 10 pouches in the pack so I fully intented to use them all. However, I now know that not all lip balms fit into these pouches! I have a bag full of Nivea to prove it ;-) My advice would be to take a pouch with you to the store and check to see if they will fit,  these are Blisteeze and they are a perfect fit. To make them look a little more festive I wrapped them in scraps of Christmas paper  ;-) 

I am going to make up 'Pamper Hampers' with lotions and potions and used these to decorate the baskets for my family and friends, I am so excited!!! I am sure they will love them!! 



So now it's YOUR turn to get out your crafty supplies and join in!!

Oh I also bought two regular lip balms but they didn't fit into the pouches . Instead I had to use mini lip balms which are actually samples, lols. MFT should have made larger pouches and matching dies. >.<

Love how you placed pouches on one side of tags. It made them look like real retail products . Lovely gifts!♡
