This month's REMARKABLE PINWORTHY TOUR has the theme of TIE ONE ON!  So I'm going to tie one on a wine bottle and tie one one a Boyd's Bear - tags that is - perfect gifts for all those cold winter evenings and holidays and perfect for gifts.

The first is a tag made with the SU! BANNER FRAMELITS and  SU! Glimmer Paper. I used the NEW SU! SWEETHEART punch for the heart that I got on the most recent SU! sale. What a deal!  I love this punch!  I put some gold satin SU! ribbon through the tag and added it to the wired ribbon around the Bear's neck.  The glimmer paper is so WOW! that the recipient's eye goes right to it.  One thing I have noticed is that even a dot of glimmer paper makes any project wow!

And, it's been pretty cold outside here in Maryland.  November had to be one of the coldest on record in Baltimore and December is pretty cold too.  To celebrate the cold let's warm up with this second project.  It's a wine tag that you can add to any gift especially with the upcoming holidays and New Years just shy of a few weeks away.

You can use the BIG SHOT tag die (retired) or any framelit or the SU! Punch tag to make the tag.  I'd layer a few or die cut some thin chipboard or other cardstock for the base and then layer with designer paper.  Stamp any image you want and use die cut snowflakes or stickers to embellish. Glimmer paper is a great embellishment that you only need a little of.  I also added a die cut initial of the hostess name (Ellen) to personalize my gift.  You can cut these out with your die cutter using SU! MDS to design the letters.  I also die cut the snowflakes with my cutter as well.  This is when I'm grateful that nothing on MDS ever retires.

And while you are  enjoying the holidays and keeping warm with your wine and your teddy bears, enjoy the video rendition of Baby It's Cold Outside by Michael Buble and Idina Menzel. I absolutely love how they changed the words up and have some really adorable actors who lip sync perfectly in the video. Plus watch for the actual artists to appear midway through when the children are looking at their grown up selves in the mirror.
