Stocking tag made from 'scraps'

The theme at ABC Christmas Challenge is Q for Quick, so I've made a little tag using a stocking template from Shape EZ.

This was truly a quick project and had the benefit of using up only scraps.  I cut out the stocking shape using a scrap of leftover designer paper, cut the top part of the stocking shape again in a scrap of white and embossed it before sticking it on with a strip of ribbon wrapped around it.  Even the ribbon was another "scrap" cut out from the shoulder of a jumper, you know those ribbon loops that just stick out from the neckline when you're wearing the tops?.  I then popped on 3 die cut snowflakes that were lying on my craft desk leftover from another project, added a couple of pearls in the snowflake centres and ran some stickles around the edge.  Finally I punched a hole in the top and popped the leftover bit of ribbon through as a loop to attach my tag to a pressie.
