Simple Die-Cut Snowflake Tags

These delicate snowflake tags were made using a Stampendous stamp and die.  I folded white smooth card stock in half before die cutting being careful to place the fold slightly under the cutting edge of one of the snowflake tips.
After stamping the image, I sprinkled on some glitter embossing powder and melting it with a heat gun. This photo clearly shows how the ribbon is glued inside the fold. The glue helps to strengthen the hanging loop of the tag.
Although the tags look fine with only embossing powder, the addition of crystals or half pearls do add extra bling
Here you can see that the folded die cut snowflake tag gives you lots of room to write a message.  You can of course make a non-folded tag and loop the ribbon through one of the snowflake openings.
I really enjoyed making these tags because it was so simple to do and the results were elegant. These Stampendous sets can be used for many other projects because there are several snowflakes of different sizes which can be layered.  I can imagine a whole garland of snowflakes around my windows.  What would you do with pretty paper snowflakes?
