Christmas Gifttags/ -ornaments

For our latest challenge at Fussy and Fancy one of the ladies (Norma, with the lovely blog "from my craftroom") had made some wonderful christmasornaments. I got really inspired by those, and had to make my own. I made it into gifttags, but sure they can be used as christmasornaments after the gift is opened :)
I've used Magnoliaimages, coloured with ProMarkers. The papers used are mainly scraps and leftovers (perfect use for scraps too big to throw away, and too small to make cards out of...)
The circles are made with Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles Large and Standard Circles Large.The largest circle is a paperstrip (I used a borderpunch on one of the longsides) that is accordionfolded, then glued together.
So far I've made three, but I hope I can find time to make more of these, as they were both fun and easy to make - and quite decorative too, I think...
Here comes pictures of them, one by one:

...and this is the backside of one of them (all backs are quite the same; same die and stamping used):

As every month I (try) to send three christmascards to Hjertebodens Juleblogg (and last month I was the lucky winner - I still walk around smiling :)) This month I'll send my three Gifttags/ ornaments for them.

I'll also enter the challenges at:
Jingle belles - Shape-Up for the Holidays

  4. Lisbeths, what a sweetheart you are for mentioning me and my blog. You've done a terrific job here. They are fabulous. Adorable Tildas and isn't wonderful that you can make use of your scraps. I simply love your idea of them being gift tags first and then turning them to be Christmas ornaments. Brilliant!
