I made and blogged about this tag way back in November 2009...

I used products by Stampin Up, I so loved this ski slope designer paper, I have only scrap pieces left now :(

I used this gift tag on a large gift-wrapped box that was filled with lots of smaller sized gifts, individually wrapped, that my husband and I gave to our daughter, for her first christmas after leaving home. She thought she had just one gift (said she thought we had bought her a hoover! lol) and she was gutted at the time to think that she wasn't getting the Beano Annual that we buy for her every year. It's the only present she knows that she is definately getting each year, and that year there wasn't a beano annual shaped gift! :o
The annual was inside the box, along with lots of other gifts. She was surprised and happy, and not at all upset that she didn't get a vacuum cleaner! :D
As I said, that was her first christmas away from home. There wasn't another, she moved back home a few months later, and I had to give up my craft room so that she could move all her stuff back in.
I would love to have my craft room again...
Anyone want a lodger? lol ;D
