Before you know it, all of the gift giving that goes hand-in-hand with the upcoming holidays will be here.  This month we thought we would challenge you to get a head start and create a quick set of five gift tags.  They can be as simple or as complex as you wish, but be sure to make at least five!  For something unique, try using unique materials for the base of your tag such as paper clay, metal, jar lids, wood veneer, fabric, canvas, felt or anything else you can dream up!  Just think how good it will feel to have these tags finished up BEFORE you even start wrapping!  

I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project.  This type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.  

You have until 11:30pm EST tonight (October 25th) to add your link to this list.  THREE random participants will be selected to win a $25 PTI Gift Certificate to spend however they choose.  They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow morning.

We look forward to seeing all of your creations!

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:

Jacquie
Jacquie pulled out the new Wonderful Words: Joy die to create this simple but stunning set of tags.  The contrast of the vibrant red against the white tag is just beautiful!

Olga
Olga made a collection of unique tags using a variety of different supplies.  I love the touches of gold and realistic evergreens.  It all works together to create a very festive look!

Stella
Stella used In the Meadow with her tag contributions to the blog hop this month.  The little hills combined with the simple silhouettes  is so pretty and easy to mass produce.  I especially like how she selected Scarlet Jewel for her sentiments.  Really makes them pop!

Congratulations to all of the winners!  Please email customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to!  I hope you all gained some inspiration for your holiday tags and will get a head start!  Thank you for joining us!
