DU2DS challenge#24 - no squares allowed - shaped card

Our challenge at DU2DS this week is "no squares allowed" - you need to make a shaped card or other project. This gave me the chance to get on and make some tags for Christmas gifts and here I have attached one to a small bottle of Port for an adult gift and the other one to a gift bag full of sweet treats for a child.

I have used Bo Bunny papers and layerd up 6 circles cut with nestabilities (3 on the from and 3 on the back and before glueing them altogether I cut 2 small ovals which I also glued together and stuck between the back and fron large circles to create a tab for threading the ribbon through (I needed to do this as the image was fairly large and there was nowhere to puch the hole at the top of the circle). Because of all the layers and the glue when the whole thing has dried it is really sturdy and almost has a leather-like quality to it. I think these could even be hung on the tree as ornaments. Both images are from Digi Stamp Boutique - I have a few more of these fab images and they will be made into tags over the next few weeks.

This is a picture of the back of the tags. I had almost forgotten that I had this stamp and it is so ideal for the back of tags.

Have a great weekend.

I will be back with another Squiggles Stamps card tomorrow featuring one of the new boy stamps.
