Fizzy Moon Gift Tags

I've just got some of the cutest teddy bear stamps from The Stamp Basket, and I couldn't resist making some little tags with them.  They're quite small images, but were still slightly too large for my Magnolia Dohickey tag die, so after scouring the web for a tag shape that I liked enough to try, I remembered that my one and only Cricut cartridge is called "Tags, Bags, Boxes and more".

Since my Cricut has been gathering dust for a while, I decided to fire it up.  However, I then discovered that I appear to have lost the booklet that explains how to use it, so I had to have a few practice runs.

OK, maybe more than just a few practice runs!

Anyway, after getting through quite a bit of scrap card, eventually I figured out how to select the right shape, get the right size and positioning on the cutting mat.   In the end it didn't work out too bad, so I got busy and made 4 tags, each using a different Fizzy Moon teddy image.

The coloured outer layers were hand cut a few millimetres larger than the machine cut image panels because I wanted to matt and layer the image panels with a matching coloured backing card.  Don't look too closely as some are a bit wonky!

I've made 2 in traditional Christmas colours, and 2 in my fail-safe colours of pink and blue.  :0)
