tagged 2 ways.... with avery elle

I didn't plan it this way, but with Sofia's card yesterday, and my treat packaging today, we're spending a few days with avery elle :)

Today, I have 2 different ways to use tags to package sweet gifts.  First up, with patterned paper:

I double-tagged it for fun and placed marshmallow treats inside one of CSS's muslin bags...

The way the patterned paper was cut is what makes it so cute!  I love the little "@" symbol that was included in the tag set.  I stamped the speech bubble outside one of the home windows.  From my home to yours, simple as that.

My second tagged gift uses the tags a little more intricately:

I cut long strips of the same patterned paper and only die-cut the tag until I had the shape at the top.  The rest was trimmed with my paper cutter.

It opens like this, so that you can get to what's inside...

yummy!  (I just realized that today also marks the 2nd day in a row that I feature macarons on the blog.  ha.)

The long tags are attached at the bottom of the sliding tray.  (I love this box, by the way, you can find the die over at CSS.)

I hope you like it!
