Mojo Monthly - Make mine a Tag!

Hello Peeps

My lovely friend Sarah over at La-De-Dah runs a Mojo Monthly which I frequently take part in and this month the theme is Tags and Tagology.  If you click on the link in my sidebar or HERE you can read her interview with Dan and see some of his and her lovely work in her Mojo Monthly post. 

So in true Blue Peter fashion, here are some tags which I have made into money envelopes in readiness for Christmas using the humble tag. This also means that I can join in with Sandra and here Rudolph Day Challenge too!  

The tags are all decorated the same yet different.  I have used the same layout but different background colours
They hold money in nicely!  A lot of people prefer to give/receive money at Christmas and these tags make them more of a present rather than putting the money into an envelope.

I really like this Walton style truck image into which I have popped some Christmas trees in the boot. 

Some ribbon attached to tie the flap down and that is the present complete. Oh!  Don't forget to put the money in.  You could also put small items of jewellery wrapped in tissue paper in there too.  

Hope you like and don't forget there is still time (just) to join in on either Challenge!

Oooh - these are fabby, real lookers and oh so petite! I really love the colours you've chosen and great stamping too... with it being so dreary outside - I' could get all Christmassy! Thanks so much for joining in with My Mojo Monthly...and I hope to do a tag bag tut some day soon. Have a good week. Sarah.

What a fab idea! Perfect for blokes actually, and I loved the reference to The Waltons, that's exactly what I always think of every time I use that stamp, putting the trees in the back was genius!

I love this rudolph day! What a great idea to work ahead. Your envelope is so vintage and pretty! What a perfect gift.
