I made a simple Christmas tag using the newly released dies Squared and Gift Tags as well as the adorable dove from the A Blessed Christmas that was released in August.

Paper Smooches - Squared

I ran a few pieces of coloured cardstock through the Squared die. I first adhered the dark grey frame over the tag and then carefully adhered the coloured squares in the empty spaces.  Hop along for more inspiration!
