Holiday Tags Assortment: Project Inspiration Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book

Here is one more great idea from "Close To My Heart"

Gift tags are a must-have year-round in every home and even more so during the holidays. Learn how to turn out classy, custom gift tags in assembly-line style, with the help of the Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge, in this Close To My Heart video. It's one more way to tell your gift recipient, "You're worth it!"

I plan on making some of these up and keep them handy during the holiday season.
