Matchbook Pop-Up Tag!

Hello!  The Crafty Scrapper is doing an event on their blog called 12 Tags of Christmas, and each day one person shows their handmade tag.  Today is my day!  Before I get to my tag, I want to tell you that every day there is a give-away.  They are picking from comments left on their Facebook page, so go there right now and leave a comment and maybe you will be the lucky winner! 

As you know, I like fun folds, pop-ups, etc. and my tag is no exception.  I combinined papers and a sentiment embellishment from the Kaisercraft pad called Holy Night, to make a hanging matchbook tag.  A BasicGrey magnet holds it closed.  


When it is opened, magic happens ...

The stand up tree die set from Elizabeth Crafts pops up and you are "wowed"!  Here is a close-up view of that fabulous pop-up tree. 

Below is a printed how-to for making the tree.  I figure their photos would be better than mine!  I have now made quite a number of these trees, between teaching it in November, making more cards to send, my ornament I showed you yesterday, and now this tag, so with all this practice, it is easy peasy!  The die set itself can be seen here.
For my tag, I left off the star topper and I used dot stickers from both Elizabeth Crafts and Stampedous for tree ornaments.  My tag measures 3 1/2" x 9 inches and is scored at 3/4" and 5". 
I will be back tomorrow to show you another Christmas card I am sending!

Happy Stamping!
