It's 5's at Anything But a Card

With there being 5 Sunday's in the month of November, Anything But a Card's new challenge is 5's - this means to create anything but a card with 5's whether it be 5 buttons on a tag, 5 tags, 5 pearls .... ok, you get the idea!
My inspiration for my project for this challenge is two things - I am in a Christmas Tag swap and need to make 5 tags for each of my friends AND you know how to purchase a Cricut Cartridge because you just know you can't live without it - well, this is the case with Cricut Very Merry Christmas Tags Cartridge which makes the ideal vehicle for this challenge ~

Recipe and Supplies:
  • dark teal Recollection cardstock for the top using Cricut Very Merry Christmas Tags Cartridge cut at 3.25 inches
  • turquoise Recollection cardstock for the bottom layer
  • the snowflake which was cut from the dark teal on the front, I hated to see it go to waste and got creative and glued this to the back of my tag 

Now, what makes this interesting is I have created not only a gift tag from my Christmas Tag Swap BUT my Design Team Project for Anything But a Card with an added bonus - The Scrapbook Blessings Club is joining forces with Honeybearz Designs for the 12 Days of Tag which begins on Monday, November 24th. For Day 1, your tag is to have a decorative front which I used my Cricut Cartridge to create a decorative front. Come back to see what I do for Day 2.

Thanks for stopping by today and can't wait to see your projects for Anything But a Card Anything Goes as long as it's not a card!!!!

Much love, hugs, and friendship


  1. Gorgeous tags Lynne, love the colour with the white design.

  3. These are perfect tags for your swap... And look at that they worked for the other challenges too... I have a Cricut but it is "old school Cricut"... back in the day when it just came out... Boy it has come a long way... Outstanding !!!!
