I decided to create a altered tag inspired by DT member Lynne!!
 You can see the inspiration here.

I started with some card stock weight paper created a jumbo tag
4 x 8 size...with fluted paper ripped down to fit.
Distressed the tag layers with gesso white paint with a paint brush...just running
over the edges. Finding a circle size that would fit in the middle of the tag, 
cut out of Kraft card stock, stamped on lightly white washed then sprayed
with a blue glimmer mist to create an icy window...put a clear layer of crackle accents.
Allowed to dry to form cracks, colored the die cuts with glimmer mists...cut apart.
Took the jute cord unraveled to create many single strings.Wrapped around the circle then added the cut apart die cuts images...glued down to jute...added my stamp poinsettia layers...added a bow, buttons and spray of heirloom gold create a vintage feel...done. inspired and ready to give away!

I used these amazing Die~Namites Dies...
