wrapping it up with Christmas tags

Are you Christmasing yet?  For this month's It's a Wrap theme here at Altered Pages, I'm sharing some tags from my Christmas Alphabetica.
Each tag is about 2 1/2 by 4 or 5 inches, with lots of fun fibers and trim, and an additional alphabet tag as an embellishment.  There are 26 tags in all (one for each letter of the alphabet, thus the Alphabetica, right?), which would make for pretty packages under the tree, or a slightly over-achieving Advent calendar.
 Un craciun fericit--essentially, Merry Christmas in Romanian. 

A little bit of ink around the edges--the perfect finishing touch.

 Thank you for stopping by, and a Happy Thursday to you!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
