My friend Emma, at My Creative Time, did a couple of projects using balsa wood this week, which reminded me that I should pull mine out again! I thought it would be fun to make a tag today. I cut my balsa wood tag shape with the Papertrey Ink Tag Sale #3 die. Then I used a scrap of red patterned paper to cut the coordinating circle that wraps over the top of the tag. The pine bough and sentiment are from PTI's Love Lives Here: Holiday stamp set.
I love my PTI Holiday Button Bits stamp set, so I pulled it out to stamp the ornament hangers. I then added some cute vintage buttons.
To make the tag sturdier (balsa wood is pretty flexible) and to add a place to write, I cut the same tag again out of green cardstock and adhered it to the back. The "To" and "From" are stamped from My Creative Time's Gift Card Sentiments stamp set.
Don't forget, you can also use your Cricut Imagine to print on balsa wood. You can see how in this video.
