Handmade Christmas Cards with Salt Dough Tags.

I made just a few Christmas cards this year, and I'm quite pleased with how they turned out!

I made the salt dough tags with little cutters and pressed in letter stamps for the initials.  I drew the dots on the salt dough with fineliner pens.  The paper in the background is from the Usbourne book 'Christmas Decorations to Cut, Fold and Stick' and I had the cards in my stash (in fact, I didn't buy anything new to make these, I had everything already).

Then I used a needle to pop a hole where I wanted each salt dough tag to hang, and threaded it through with embroidery thread.

This one with 4 tags on is a little heavy, I don't know how good it's chances are of staying standing up!
